WELCOME TO THE BIG KIDS CLUB is a new humorous picture book that gives children an idea of what to expect when they get a new sibling. Clinton, mom of three, teaches older siblings what your baby can see, why your baby cries, when your baby will be able to talk, how your baby knows you love them, and so much more (including why your baby poops so much!). She also acknowledges in the text that not all babies will have the same abilities and shows readers how they can interact with siblings who develop differently. With artwork sure to cause big-kid-sized giggles, this book is perfect for any member or soon-to-be member of the Big Kids Club. A Spanish language edition, Bienvenidos al club de los niños grandes, will be concurrently released.

Kirkus Reviews praised the book, saying, “The congratulatory tone and initiation into a secret club just may be the hook some new siblings need to feel special. A club that everyone will want to join.”
