When the children learn their mom is having a baby, they are ecstatic, but soon realize a long wait is in store. Ready, Set ... Baby! takes children on a journey from pregnancy to after the arrival of baby. Older siblings get a glimpse of what life with the new baby will be like and learn how they can help out.
From poppy diapers and funny baby sounds to how family members will react, this book is an essential edition to any family that discovers they are expecting. In edition to the charming story the book also contains helpful resources for parents.
I highly recommend picking up a copy of Ready, Set ... Baby! It would also make a great gift!
