In Dogs Don't Eat Jam and Other Things Big Kids Know, Sarah Tsiang shares lessons of growing up through the advice of an experienced big sister. This older sibling eagerly explains the hurdles each baby must accomplish before becoming a toddler.
This delightful story serves as a growing-up-guide that each first-time older sibling should read when welcoming a newborn into the family. With wittiness, big sister dutifully explains childhood milestones, such as pulling up her own zipper, feeding the dog for mom and dad, reading stories and bravely taking the school bus to kindergarten. Tsiang's story emphasizes the abundance of lessons involved in growing up—including that the dog doesn't eat jam—and an older sibling's willingness to pass on a wealth of early wisdom.
