Tomorrow is our baby shower, and I am going to make little gift baskets for our two daughters (15 and almost 11). So, I would like a book about being a big sister for our 11 year old daughter! I'm sure there must be some good ones. Chapter books, picture books, either way. She is an advanced reader. Please offer suggestions!!!

How did the shower go? Were you able to find a book you liked for your 11 year old?

The shower was great :) We didn't end up finding a book for her. Still kinda stumped on that one. We did give her a funny baby book that she can fill out, called "The Inappropriate Baby Book." It's not really inappropriate, it's mostly just about gross stuff. Totally funny to an 11 year old. "The person you first puked on..." "The first time you pooped your pants it looked like this..." and an envelope in the back for "Something gross your parents saved..." Pretty silly. Still seems crazy that we haven't found a decent young adult novel about having a new baby sister! Oh well. I think she'll do great.
