The New Baby

Introducing a young child to the idea of a new sibling can be a tricky venture. This book helps parents to talk to their child about the baby developing in Mommy's tummy and what to expect when it comes out. Warm, delightful illustrations can be completed, colored in, and engaged with.

Activities include thinking up names for baby, filling in a family tree, practicing to hold a baby, designing a baby grow, and talking about the older child's likes and dislikes.
