Here We All Are
by Tomie dePaola

For little Tomie, life is just about as exciting as it can get, or so he thinks. His family has just moved into their new house. He has never lived in a house before and the whole experience delights him. He loves being able to run up and down the stairs. He loves having all the space and having so many new things to look at. Then Tomie's mother gives him some news that adds to the excitement in the air. His mother is going to have a baby and he, Tomie, is going to be a big brother! More than anything Tomie hopes that he is going to have a little sister. He already has a brother and feels that one brother is quite enough. A sister would balance things out very nicely. Of course getting a little brother or sister is not easy and there are problems to overcome. Tomie discovers that he cannot always have things his way and it is a hard lesson to learn for a small boy. What is especially enjoyable about the stories in this little book is that they are personal and told from Tomie's point of view. It is very much as if we were there, as if we were watching what was happening through Tomie's eyes. We experience his days at school, and we get that first hint of what is to become Tomie's vocation in later life, his art.
