My daughter loves being a big sister! It is so fun to see her try to be a mini-mom or call for my husband and I to “make the baby stop crying”, because she doesn’t want him to be upset. Nickelodeon has just released a compilation of brother, sister and family-related episodes of your favorite Nick Jr. friends and it has been perfect timing now that my daughter really understands what it means to have a little brother!
Big Sister Dora has already been a favorite episode, but the others were new for us and it was fun to talk about and see the siblings and family of our favorite Nick Jr. friends. Look for this DVD at your favorite retailer or online at Amazon.com.
