      I would use this book for students who may have a sibling on the way. This is a great book yo use to prepare children for the arrival of another baby therefore creating a text to self connection.

      I love Keats' illustrations in this one! It's a gentle story about a young boy who is jealous of his baby sister getting all his old baby things, until his old toddler's chair helps him realize an important truth.

      With all the events of the last few months, I nearly overlooked the fact that this year is the 100th birthday anniversary of one of America's greatest children's authors: Ezra Jack Keats. This book is one of the many of his that I read in my early elementary school days. This books plot is to show young kids with younger siblings that they will be required to pass on some of their baby items to them. Keats' stalwart protagonist, Peter, has to learn, this lesson concerning his infant sister. the [...]

      I really enjoyed the book, Peter's Chair" by Ezra Jack Keats. The story starts out with a little boy, maybe around the age of four, playing inside his house with his blocks. When his blocks crash down and make a noise, his mother reminds him to play quietly because they have a new baby in the house. His mother and father are using all of Peter's old things, such as; a crib, cradle, and high chair. Peter becomes jealous and upset that his new, little sister is receiving his old things and his par [...]

      "Peter's Chair" by Ezra Jack Keats demostrates the importance of learning to share and helps children realize that, as they get older, they will not be able to do the same things as before. This story is about a little boy whose family is about to welcome a brand new baby girl; as a result of this, they are painting all of Peter's baby things pink. Well, naturally, he starts to feel left out, like all his baby things are being taken away from him for the new baby. So, he decides to save the one [...]

      Peter’s Chair is an amusing book about young boy that has difficulty coping with the idea of having a new sibling. His parents keep painting his old belongings pink and giving it to his younger sister Susie. However, Peter devises a plan to hide his old toddler chair, which his parents have not yet seen. Towards the end of the book, Peter realises that he is too big for his things and comes round to the idea of his sister having them. This is a wonderful book for explaining to young children t [...]

      Like Love You Forever I think this book would be good for learning about growing up and adapting to change. I think this book is very easy to relate to and is very relevant to the lives of many students mainly those who are getting used to having a new sibling. This book would be great for making personal connections and learning to express feelings an appropriate and constructive way.

    9. Dianna on said:

      Peter comes to terms with his baby sister. Even though my son is mostly used to his sister, I still think these sorts of books help him understand that having a sister is something that little boys all over the world have to deal with.

    10. Ebony Hargett on said:

      Great book for students with younger siblings. I enjoyed reading this book because it is easy to relate to. It focuses on growing up, getting angry, dealing with frustration and sharing with a baby sister. Cute illustrations also. Great flow of events in the story.

This book would be good to read with a student who is having a hard time adjusting to a new baby in their house or just to have in your reading corner. (Traditional Lit)

      Good book for a big brother or big sister of a baby (or one on the way).Peter is jealous as he sees all his old stuff (his bed, his high chair) get repurposed for his new little sister. He decides to grab his chair before she can take it and run away. He makes it to the sidewalk outside. He realizes he can no longer sit in his chair because he's too big. He sneaks back in the house, tricks his mother, and suggests prepping his old chair for his sister.

He is worried his little chair will succumb to the same fate, so he takes his chair and he andhis dog Willie run away -- all the way to outside his house. :)His parents are understanding, and then Peter realizes he doesn't even fit into his chair anymore! He has to make a decision.

      A boy has a new little sister. His parents have been painting his old baby furniture pink to use with his new sister. Peter's not happy about the baby getting his old furniture, so he takes a chair that is still blue. He runs away with the chair, but ends up changing his mind. A good story for youngsters that will be getting a new little brother or sister.

    18. Zoe Supina on said:

      Didn't quite understand the point of this story. I suppose it's to help children cope with the idea of getting a new baby sibling, but even that I think it did a poor job with. The illustrations are great but the story is just odd and enforces societal gender roles.

    19. Kris Dersch on said:

      Peter's back, and he's going to be a big brother. Great story for kids going through this transition, or really any kids. How did he make these books so timeless? I think that's an unanswerable question.

    20. Jessica on said:

      This book would be great to share with kids who have our will have younger siblings. The artwork is so beautiful and unique. The story shares that sometimes it takes others a little while longer to come to the same conclusion as the rest of us.

    21. Hannah Groeschen on said:

      I liked this story because I felt like it did a good job of portraying the feelings of an older sibling who feels like they’re being replaced by the newest addition to the family. I liked the illustrations in this book because they of a style of pictures that I had never encountered before.

    22. Laura G on said:

      Another great book portraying the transitions that older siblings go through when a baby comes into the family. Makes me think of King Baby and Julius Baby of the World, to name a couple.

    23. James on said:

      Peter's trick was very cool. It could make a parent think that their somewhere else but their actually in another place.

    24. Dionne on said:

      Wonderful for teaching children how to share with a new sibling.

    25. Rae B. on said:

      Requested at bedtime when we had it home from the library - always a good sign. My toddler particularly liked seeing/recognizing Willie in the pictures with Peter.

    26. lola Franco on said:

      I love this book. The emotions are real. The jealousy of the older child rings especially true. I think it's a great book for a new older sibling.

      It's hard to share even when you realize you've outgrown your old favorites!
