I ordered this for my 4 yr old grand daughter to give to her at her little sister's baby shower. I knew that there would be gifts for the baby and we wanted her to feel special and have something to unwrap. When it arrived, I sent a picture to my daughter because it was so cute. The book is hardback and very nice. It's sweet inside - perfect for big sister, but he bear is the prize. It's soooo soft and well made and the little bear in the tummy pocket is a rattle for the new baby. I thought it was priceless - order it!
