Description

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.

Qin Leng was born in Shanghai and lived in France and Montreal. She now lives and works as a designer and illustrator in Toronto. Her father, an artist himself, was a great influence on her. She grew up surrounded by paintings, and it became second nature for her to express herself through art. She graduated from the Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema and has received many awards for her animated short films and artwork. Qin has always loved to illustrate the innocence of children and has developed a passion for children’s books. She has illustrated numerous picture books for publishers in Canada, the United States, and South Korea.

Dogs Don’t Eat Jam and Other Things Big Kids Know

The big sister in this story is more than happy to teach her new baby brother all he needs to know. From learning how to drink milk and get Mom and Dad’s attention to potty training and dressing oneself, she explains what it’s like to grow up. A perfect book for children who are about to welcome a new sibling into the family.
