The rain is pouring down in buckets, and Francie and her mom are on their way home from Grandmas. As the little red car pulls into a picnic area to wait out the storm, the windows fog up, and Francie spells out Dad, Mom, and Francie with her finger. But the back window is waiting for another name, that of Francies soon-to-arrive baby sister. What should they call her? Francie and her mother ponder this as they return to the road.

I loved how the illustrations zoomed in and had a thread throughout the story. A sweet story about home and a new baby.

“What will her name be, Mommy?” “Well, she’s not quite with us yet,” said Mom. "But when will she have a name, Mommy?" said Francie. "Soon," said Mom. "Sometime soon,"

A sweet tale about an expectant mother and her young daughter driving home after a visit to grandmas. The two decide on a name for the new baby: Grace.

Bob Graham's soft watercolour illustrations evoke the tender bond between mother and the soon to be big sister. A must read for families expecting a new addition!
