The Trouble with Babies

ebook
"The thought-provoking reflections on personality and growth add insight and discussability."—The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
Fourth grade scientists are not meant to be babysitters. The second book in the Nora Notebooks finds Nora Alpers in unfamiliar territory.


Nora Alpers has just become a ten-year-old aunt. To prepare for the new arrival, Nora has been writing down baby-related facts in her special notebook, just like she does with her favorite subject: ants. She likes the idea that someone who studies the A-N-T is also an A-U-N-T, even though she doesn't know anything about taking care of babies.
A new family member isn't the only thing stressing Nora out. At school, Nora has to write journals in the voice of a pioneer on the Oregon Trail and prepare for the annual science fair. Science is normally Nora's best subject—until Nora ends up being paired with science-hating, cat-obsessed Emma! How will Nora ever learn to be a good aunt if she's trying to survive the Oregon Trail and arguing against Emma's unscientific science-fair ideas?

Readers will welcome the return of Nora who Publishers Weekly called "delightful[ly] enterprising" in a starred review.
