New Baby focuses on just that. Little Critter’s family is going to have a baby. He’s quite excited, and when the baby arrives, he is ready to be a really good big brother. Except there are a few small problems. His little sister is not being a very good sister. Whenever he tries to tell her stories, she does not listen. She always seems to be crying about something, and she makes a lot of funny faces. Little Critter even has plenty of jokes to tell her, but she does not understand any of them!

Eventually, Little Critter realizes all the things that one can do with a tiny sister, and decides that maybe being a big brother really is a good thing after all.
