Mama had a baby last night. 'Is it a boy or a girl?' I ask Daddy. 'It's a surprise, Kevie,' he says. 'You'll fi nd out when they come home.' 'When is that?' I ask. 'Tonight,' says Daddy.

Kevie is excited that he'll no longer be the littlest. Little brothers get teased. Little brothers make messes. Big brothers help out. Big brothers know how to do things. Daddy, big brother Josh, and Kevie are making Mama's special soup to welcome her and the new baby home. But only Kevie knows the secret ingredient.

Absolutely irresistible illustrations and a funny, read-aloud text make this book just right for little brothers, big brothers - and their parents.
