This is another cute book for tots who are going to become big brothers or sisters, my two year old daughter loves it. Its based around a family called 'The Bunns' who are having a new baby. I read a review that said it was a little old fashioned, which for some it might be, it refers to the mum and dad as Mr & Mrs Bunn and its a very 'traditional' set up eg. Mum, Dad, 2.4 kids and a dog. For me this was fine as this is what my family make up is so it suited well. Its short and sweet and has the classic Usbourne trade mark of a little Yellow duck somewhere on each page, which my tot loves - she knows where every single one is! A good all rounder if you ask me!

I ordered this book based on the reviews here and haven't been disappointed. My 22 month old adores this story and it has become compulsory bedtime reading. My advice though would be to order the Usborne Complete Book of Experiences.
Complete Book of First Experiences (Usborne First Experiences)
For a little over twice the price you get this story as well as other 'experiences', with a hard rather than paper cover.

This book is great for showing a 2 year old what to expect in the family home during pregnancy and when the baby comes home. It follows the Bunn family and the story has a kind of lovely old fashioned feel to it. My daughter loves to look for the Usborne duck (which is hidden on every double page spread). I would recommend this book for anyone with 'traditional' type of family e.g. Mum, Dad, Granny and Grandad, and 2.4 children. I think those with more unusual family set ups would find this book stuffy and not what they are looking for.

2-year old daughter loves this book & definitely feel she is taking on board the events which will surround the arrival of her brother to the family. It is traditional, yes, but I think it would be impossible to try & cover every type of family set up. Would recommend it.

This book goes into just enough detail to explain what will happend, from mum going into hospital, visiting after baby's born and being at home. It was brilliant for my 3yr old especially the lovely pictures

I bought this for my 3 year old when I was about 6 months pregnant, and he goes in fits and starts of reading it. I found it useful for familiarising him of what was going to happen, eg nanny and grandad coming to look after the children when mummy went into hospital, getting the nursery ready, mummy in the hospital with the other mummies etc. I haven't given it the full 5 stars as I think maybe it was a little bit too young for him, for example he asked me the other day how the baby was going to come out of my tummy! Also I think that some more story after the baby was born would have been useful, for example im sure it will come as a shock how much babies cry!

We bought this along with a similar book to help ease my first son into the idea of a new baby in the house. This book isn't bad but he never really got into it and the ideas in it are pretty old fashioned in the sense of gender roles and what happens when you have a baby in 21st century Britain!

We and he preferred 'There's a House inside my Mummy' which he still requests even though his little brother has been with us for nearly a month! This book though will probably make it's way to a charity shop or NCT sale.

Bought this for my 2 1/2yo son when I was pregnant the 2nd time. It really helped us explain our pending arrival to him, and I believe helped him understand what was going to happen. Once we finished with it, I passed it to a pregnant friend who agreed the story and pictures were lovely.

Nice book to read at any time of the day to discuss the arrival of a new baby in the family. Still the added fun of looking for the little duckling on every page. Story is short and covers the points that are essential for little ones to understand. My daugther loves it.

I bought this book as a small gift for a new 3 year-old big sister and apparently it went down a treat! I read through the book myself first and was a bit nervous about whether the parents would deem it appropriate as Mrs. Bunn (the mother's character in the book) breastfeeds her new baby as opposed to bottle feeds which would be fine for me, but I was a bit wary of the recipients parents' feelings on it as I know they use bottles. Anyway, I am told that it is a new favourite in the household so all is well. Phew! I would buy it for my son if I were to have another baby anyway. The story is simply told and the illustrations are delightful. Would recommend.
