Review: Narrated by a little girl, this is the story about how her parents want to give her a baby brother or sister, and about her anxiety over all the treatments her mother has to go through in order to have that baby. One of the goals of the book is to help older siblings understand IVF and reduce their anxiety about it. It also is a helpful book to explain to IVF children, when they are older, how they were conceived.
