44 months - A good read for a child awaiting their baby sibling. I liked that there were blocks of text dedicated to those kids who want to know more... so you can pick and choose how in depth you want to get with the details of the baby's birth. Since reading a couple of different baby books O has come up with some very interesting and thoughtful questions. Like how does he eat, how does he poop and pee? ( )

I enjoyed reading this book. This book is a good book for young children that their mommy would be having a baby soon. This book is about the two young children in the story and their mommy having a baby soon. It talks about how the parents talk to the children and letting them know the do and the things that will be happening with their little sister or brother on the way.

Personal reaction
I enjoyed reading the book. I think that this book is good young chrildren's mom is having a baby. It can be little scared at times and not knowing what it is going to be like when the new baby arrvied. This book will help them understand and see that nothing really going to change but just having a new addition to the family. This book is also good for parents cause i felt like it would also help them to help their children understand as well.

Extension ideas
1. Have the students write down a list of thing that they could help their parents with the baby.
2. Have the students draw something that they would want to teach their brother or sister when it gets older.

This book is great to read to little ones who are going to be the big ones. The pages also give parents how too tidbits they can follow to make the transtion into a bigger unit go smoothly. ( )

I thought it was very informative for a "children's" book.

This is an excellent example of realistic fiction that will allow a student to understand the pressures on a family expecting a new baby. It follows one family and the story from a child's first understanding to bringing the new baby home. This book will allow children to understand the process. The plot of the book works excellently to help children follow and understand the process of a mom being pregnant and bringing a new sibling home. ( )
