Publisher Description

When you're small, waiting for anything can seem to take a lifetime, especially when it's a baby! There is so much to sort out for the new arrival - clothes, toys and a place to sleep. A new addition to any family is exciting, but the experience can also be worrying and confusing for siblings. Coping with the new situations and emotions that arise can be very challenging. This series of four board books deals with the anticipation of waiting for the new baby, the excitement of the arrival itself, and the beginnings of the special relationship that develops between siblings. The simple conversational text and lively illustrations are carefully designed to encourage further dialogue between reader and child.

Review

A wonderful book to share with toddlers and young children. Waiting for the arrival of a new sibling can be an exciting and sometimes confusing time, but there is so much that needs to be done, and Mum needs some help. The pictures are colourful and the text offers questions that promote conversation, which allow the emotions of having a new baby to be explored. A lovely book to share one-to-one with your child - perfect for both early years settings and parents alike. -- Debra Barton Nursery Education Plus "These four books in the New Baby series are just right for toddlers awaiting and adjusting to the birth of a new sibling. They cover pregnancy, welcoming the baby, and learning to play and live together. ... The multiracial families are always smiling and gentle. Colorful artwork fills each page. The writing is clear, conversational, and full of common situations." School Library Journal "The New Baby series from Child's Play is spot on accurate. ... watercolors and graphite or grease pencil outlines are friendly and exuberant." Readertotz blog "... no one can complain about the positive message it conveys, appropriately, to its baby and toddler audience." Kirkus Reviews
