The bond between a new baby and its sibling is special and uniquely rewarding. Sometimes, however, it is difficult to adapt to the baby’s wants and needs! 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.
“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
“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.
