A friend recommended this to me when I was 7 months pregnant as we wanted a book to help my 2 year old understand what was going on.
It’s a lovely rhyming story which my daughter loved, however be aware that in the book they don’t know if it’s a boy or a girl baby, so when reading it we had to adapt it slightly as we knew we were having a girl so my daughter kept saying about it being a sister, not a brother.
I liked the way it explained that mummy gets tired easily and that the son should help her...this helped my daughter understand why I’m not always able to run and play with her like I used to!
Great book, good quality material, would highly recommend
I do understand what others are saying about it mentioning a baby brother more often than a baby girl but my daughter still can't decide what our baby will be and we read this book every night so it's obviously not influencing her towards a boy.
My only criticism is at the end it says until she makes another, not everyone will want another or be able to have another but you can always miss the last page if it bothers you.
I'd highly recommend this book to read if you're expecting another baby.
This book helped to explain it all to him, and was written in simple language with lovely pictures.
Outcome was one happy toddler who had better understanding that Mummy was expecting a baby, and enabled him to feel comfortable about cuddles with Mummy knowing that he wasn't going to squash the baby! Book also encouraged him to copy what the little boy did in the story like talking to baby through Mummy's tummy.
Would recommend to anyone who is pregnant with a toddler who is slightly bemused by what is going on.
