Waiting for Baby Reviews
This was awesome to read with my first while waiting for our second to come. It was only on library loan then. In anticipation of #3, I found and bought it. My first now gets it down and asks that I read it. And quotes from it, like last night while I was rocking him before putting him in bed. I told him to talk to the baby, and he said a couple things, including (a paraphrase from the book (: ) "I'm(or was it "We're"?) waiting and waiting and waiting for you!" I hope it will help #2 prep and get excited to have another friend in the family... :)
My two year old was able to relate a little bit better to this book than to others I've read so far, about a new baby joining the family. In the book the little boy is talking to the baby in his mommy's tummy, and telling her all the things they will do together. I was able to say "you'll be able to help dress baby too" or "read books to baby too" or "play in the bath too". I want my little girl to feel involved and to look forward to her little brother, so I think this was a good approach.
This was OK. The story was good, although not funny like others (which usually is more my taste). The color pencil illustrations are soft, like the message, which fit, but also not my favorite. These days anything in the topic I see on the shelf I pick up, thus...
