Reading Wednesday | Books For The Big Sibiling-To-Be

The New Baby by Mercer Mayer: I recently picked this book up at our local library. I honestly didn’t even open the book up before getting it home so I didn’t know what to expect but Edith has loved it! It is easy to follow and talks about the things an older sibling can do with their new baby.

 

 

 

 

I’m a Big Sister by Joanna Cole: We bought this book for Edith around 27 weeks pregnant with baby #2. This book goes through what life is like with a new baby in the house and how that while there is a new baby that the big sister is still important. One of the things that I love about this book is how they call the baby “our baby” rather than mom or dad’s baby it just makes everything feel more inclusive. This book also has suggestions at the end on how to help your toddler/child transition to becoming a big sister. Also don’t worry there is a I’m a Big Brother version too!

 

 

Waiting for Baby by Rachel Fuller: This book is a little different than the others I mentioned above. It is more focused on the pictures in the book and really provides for more of an opportunity to talk about the pending arrival of your baby. While Edith doesn’t totally grasp that we are having a baby this book has really allowed us to talk more with her about our pregnancy and the baby who will be arriving soon.

 

 

 

My New Baby by Rachel Fuller: This book is similar to Waiting for Baby in it’s style. It provides an opportunity to discuss what to expect when baby is born and home. I love that this book features the mother nursing her baby since I will be nursing our new baby. Again this book is a little over Edith’s head but it has allowed us to talk with her about what to expect when the baby arrives.
