Description

 

Baby Louise won’t stop crying . . . until Daniel whispers the magic words!

When Daniel’s baby sister cries, nobody in the family can quiet her. Her mother sings a lullaby; her father rocks her in his arms; Grandma gives her a bottle; Grandpa plays a tune on his harmonica. Nothing works! Little Louise just goes on crying until big brother Daniel appears on the scene and knows just what to say to soothe Louise, even if the words don’t make sense to anybody else!

This delightful story, from award-winning creators Frieda Wishinsky and MichaelMartchenko, is a perfect story for households with a new baby in the family — and an older sibling!
