What babies are good at
Barney Saltzberg's optimistic pig is back for a third installment in Cornelius P. Mud, Are You Ready for Baby?. Now that Cornelius has mastered bedtime and the first day of school, young readers and listeners can see if he is ready for the biggest job of all: being a big brother. With huge acrylic and pencil illustrations to show Cornelius' mixed emotions, we learn that the baby can't play, talk, walk or eat pizza, but he is very good at sleeping, drinking, peeing, pooping and crying. And once our little hero holds the new baby, we learn that he can also be a little brother. Cornelius is a kind-hearted, active and real little guyand is on the way to becoming a fine big brother for the new arrival.
