Topsy and Tim find fun and adventure in the real world. Their engaging stories are reassuring for young children having first experiences of their own. In Topsy and Tim: The New Baby, the twins' friend Tony has a new baby brother called Jack. At first Tony is a bit jealous of the new baby but he soon learns how to be a helpful big brother.

Topsy & Tim remain instantly recognisable to parents while in a fresh style that will appeal to a new generation of fans. Re-launching in April 2009 with the bestselling titles Learning to Swim, The New Baby, Start School, Go on an Aeroplane, Go Green and Have a Birthday Party these wonderful books deserve a place on the bookshelves of the next generation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 1 Feb 2004
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This is the first "proper" story my nearly 2 year old son has sat and listened to. He loves it, and obviously understands that just like Tony, he too is going to have a baby brother or sister soon. I highly recommend it as both a lovely story and great preparation for a new sibling.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hurrah! A kid's book with breastfeeding! 20 July 2001
Format:Paperback
I have fond memories of "old school" T&T books, and this is just as good (I'm not sure if it's an update of an oldie or a new title) Topsy and Tim go to see a friend's new baby brother, two favourite parts are when the baby cries and his brother says he's "poohed his pants" and when the baby is fed and it's breastfeed! So many children's books these days feature bottles - even ones with animal characters! So it's lovely to see a book for kids with a baby being fed properly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Handy for your second baby! 2 April 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you are expecting your second child then "Topsy and Tim and the new baby" is for you. I prepared my 2 year old son for the impending arrival of his brother with this book and I think it contributed a lot to his delight on the babys arrival. As usual T and T run their mundane lives that appeal to children so much, visiting Tony Welch's new baby, seeing it breastfed, changed and bathed. It also shows that Tony is at times ambivalent about the baby. I have since bought it for friends second children with great success.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very clear and engaging for my toddler 19 Jun 2008
Format:Hardcover
With 5 weeks to go until I have my second I've been reading this to my 20 month old. He sits very still and really listens to the story so obviously finds it very engaging. I like the fact it touches on lots of aspects of expecting a new baby (he'll sleep in my old cot/putting clothes in the drawer ready for him) to what it's like when the baby arrives (babies can't talk so they cry when they want something etc). Think it makes a great accompaniment to similar books that explore the more emotional side of a new arrival.

5.0 out of 5 stars I have brought it 4 times so far!! 4 Aug 2004
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
I brought this book for my 18mth old son when my daughter was just 2mths old. It was brilliant and covered everything from using his old cot and nappy changing to breast feeding and bathing the new baby. Both my children still read the book!I have now brought it for three other friends who are now pregnant with their second child.

This is a really nice story which introduces younger children to new members of the commumity in a warm and positive manner that preschool children can identify with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Toddler's favourite book 13 Mar 2010
Format:Paperback
I bought this some time in advance of the new baby arriving and it was an instant hit. My son has just turned two and despite thinking this book might be a little complicated for him (and with paper pages, rippable!) this is now the only book he wants to read - twice a day.

3.0 out of 5 stars Better for older children 10 Sep 2012
By JulesM
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Whilst my little one, aged 18 months, likes to look at the pictures from time to time this book is clearly not designed for such a young child. The ideas are too complex and it is not sufficiently engaging for her. I see no reason why it would not work well for those of 3+ years but I would not recommend it for under 2s.
