New babies have a lot to learn; lucky for them, the older sibling in this delightful picture book is here to tell them everything they have to remember … and look forward to. Whether it’s advice on turning regular people into parents, learning how to go—and stop—or figuring out the most important words (Mama! Dada! Up!), Dogs Don’t Eat Jam is filled with useful tips and lessons from an experienced older sibling that will help newborns navigate the uncertainties of their new world.
Following on the heels of the much-praised A Flock of Shoes, Sarah Tsiang and Qin Leng team up for a second time in this playful picture book. It’s the ultimate guide for newborns from an older, wiser sibling.
“This is a great read-aloud book that celebrates the joy, excitement, and love that come with the arrival of a new baby . . . an excellent gift for any child gaining a sibling.”- Quill & Quire, *starred review, 12/11
“Leng's mixed-media art creates lively scenes of domestic bliss (and drama).”- Publishers Weekly, 12/12/11
