Description

Introducing a young child to the idea of a new sibling can be a tricky venture. This book helps parents to talk to their child about the baby developing in Mummy's tummy and what to expect when it comes out. Lie's warm, delightful illustrations can be completed, coloured in and engaged with. Activities include thinking up names for baby, drawing pictures of the older child, filling in a family tree, practicing to hold a baby, designing a babygrow, and talking about older child's likes and dislikes. Printed in bright pantone colours, the book has a vintage aesthetic that simultaneously feels very contemporary. Following on from the success of titles such as Evolution: A colouring book, this activity book brings together high-design with a simple, interactive concept

This book from Cicada Books is a wonderful activity book to get your child/ children ready for a new baby. --Boudesignblog The New Baby is an adorable activity paperback created to help children make sense of what it means to become a sibling. With humorous and colorful illustrations, children can doodle, color in and create. While the art is in play, little minds can begin to think about the ways in which life will be different once baby arrives, and about the roles of family members. --babyology
