Here's the perfect book for baby showers

What can a child expect when mom is expecting? What will happen between now and when the new baby comes—and when a child is going to be a big brother or big sister? What should a child do while waiting for a sibling to arrive? This carefully explained picture book provides answers to these questions and more, helping make the arrival exciting instead of scary.

Part of the Sears Children's Library picture books, this title provides helpful information for young children expecting a new brother or sister.

My 3yr old daughter loves this book. She has LOTS of questions about the baby in my belly and this books explains using language and illustrations she understands.

I got this to read to my 5 yr old since we are expecting another child. Good content, doesn't go above her level and has great pictures. It seems to have helped answer some of her questions about where babies come from and what they look like inside my belly. I think it helped my husband be able to answer her questions too. We read it together as a family and stopped to answer questions that it prompted along the way. Great book when you need just a bit to show and answer questions that you may not realize you know yourself.

This book was loved by my daughter who is 4 and waiting for her brother to arrive. We bought it when we found out we were pregnant and she still loves reading it after 8 months! I really like the way they have a 'parent's guide' to answering your child's questions. Great book!

Christie Watts Kelly and the Sears have put together two wonderful books that really understand how children think. I loved Baby on the Way and so did my grandchildren. Thank you for paving the way for the new one.
