Gia is concerned about the news of a new sibling. The baby has not even been born yet and already seems to be all everyone talks about. To my dislike Gia refers to the baby as the “ding dang” baby until she realizes that she, her mother, and the baby all share a love for pecan pie. This story could be helpful for children adjusting to the idea of a new sibling.
