Albert and Little Henry

Publisher: Walker Books

Review

As a puppy, Albert loves listening to stories. When he gets older, he makes up tales of his own, which Mum and Dad are always eager to hear. However, with the arrival of a baby brother, his parents are too busy to listen to him. Even friends and family only have eyes for Little Henry.

Albert feels small and insignificant, and is alarmed when he starts shrinking in size. The worse thing is that nobody seems to notice, until Mum gives him a special gift to reassure him that he is loved just as much as ever.

This is a touching story about overcoming the challenges of welcoming a new sibling into the family, enhanced by gentle illustrations, which are full of warmth.
