Aaliyah P. is Born! (The Little Adventures of Aaliyah P.) (Volume 1) by Lucinda Weeks is a delightful story that revolves around the birth of a baby. The story introduces readers to Aaliyah P. and the excitement that precedes her birth where we get to read how the entire family is awaiting her arrival. When the nurse comes and says it's a girl, the entire family is thrilled and they think she is the prettiest thing they have ever seen. There are a lot of suggestions for the name, but finally her father decides on the name Aaliyah Paige and her grandmother calls her Aaliyah P. for short. The book chronicles the moments before and after Aaliyah is born.

The coloring pages at the end of the story will excite young readers. It's an adorable book that can be used for bedtime storytelling and for interactive sessions in classrooms and school libraries. The moments before and after Aaliyah's birth are palpable and readers can feel the excitement that runs through the friends and family of Aaliyah's parents. Once Aaliyah's father calls a few people to tell them the baby is on its way, readers can feel the excitement that runs through the story. The author takes some simple and real moments from daily life and makes these into an interesting story for readers. The big day in the lives of Aaliyah's parents and their extended family and friends connects well with readers, making this book an entertaining and enjoyable read.
