great book for toddlers

i saw this in the library and hired it out, it was an imediate favourite with my 21 month old and i imediatly baught it. we read it every day and she loves it and is now understanding alot more about a baby being in mummys tummy and also that eventually it will come out and she will be a big sister. I thought she was to young to really grasp it however since reading this with her it has really sunk in.show more

Helpful

"As did most of the previous reviewers we bought this book when we were expecting another baby. It does help the child or toddler grasp the concept of what's going on, while at the same time, also being simply a great and entertaining story. I think our daughter enjoyed the fact that the story might have been written about her."show more
