You may be excited, surprised, and just maybe a little bit anxious on how to tell the Big Brother or Big Sister there will be a new baby soon.
No worries! Finally there's a book that truly involves the older sibling in mom's pregnancy and can help them form an emotional bond even before the baby is born.
Each day, the unborn baby "talks" to the sibling and describes the developmental changes happening, then gives them a related activity to do. Each activity is quick, easy, and fun, such as coloring, counting, measuring, journaling, and more.
Involving the older sibling in the process can create excitement and love for the new family member.
