“Hooray! It’s a New Royal Baby!” by Martha Mumford. (Book Review)

Proud parents, Kate & Will hold newly arrived Princess of Cambridge, outside the Lindo Wing on May 3, 2015!

Hooray! Royal Baby George is about to get a sibling! Daddy (aka Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge) and Mommy (aka Kate Middleton, the Dutchess) are about to bring home a new baby (a Princess!) from the hospital! The Royal Palace and all of foggy London town are a hustle and bustle with getting ready for the new little one! The nursery is getting final touches and Uncle Harry and Aunt Pippa are busy hanging banners from the gates of Buckingham Palace! But what is the big fuss over this tiny baby? The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge can’t wait to introduce George to the new Royal Baby, his sister! The new baby is quiet and sleepy, and George isn’t too impressed. But with every gurgle, giggle, raspberry, the new Royal Baby begins to win over George and the two start to become great playmates!

Such a gorgeous, angelic New Royal Baby – a real-life Princess!

“Hooray! It’s a New Royal Baby!” is a part of the “Royal Baby” series by author Martha Mumford.  Other titles include “Sssh! Don’t Wake the Royal Baby!” and “Happy Birthday, Royal Baby!” This is an absolutely adorable story, perfect for any families adding a new baby to the mix – royal or not!  This story will help older siblings get excited about gaining a new friend rather than having to share toys and attention.  The illustrations by Ada Grey are incredibly cheery and sweet, and the Royal Family is drawn incredibly accurately! George’s sweet, round face is perfection, just like real-life George, and I imagine he loves this book just as much as we do in our house! This lovely book was obviously written before the world found out that the new royal baby delivered is indeed a little girl – a Princess! – but this fact or lack of makes the story easier for any family with a baby on the way to relate to, male or female. Whether your family is growing, or you are just as excited as I am about the thought of another beautiful Royal Baby’s arrival, invite the Will and Kate, George and the New Royal Baby into your home and you will never want them to leave!!

Dolly, a royal in her own right, loves to read about the Royal Babies!

Real-life Royal Baby George doesn’t look worried at all about the thought of another Royal Baby! What a sweetie you are, and a good big brother you will be, George!
