This was my 2.5 year old daughter & my favourite book while I was pregnant. She loved it so much she wanted to recreate the scenes of cuddling my belly etc.

By mrs emma louise wilkinson 01 Sep 2012 5

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.

I have been reading this to my toddler regularly and it has been a hit with her. Nice rhyming verses and simple illustrations. Would recommend it to any expectant parent.

By a Book Depository customer 10 Dec 2008 3

"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."

Review quote

The gentle story is told in rhymes from the point of view of a little boy. Bournemouth Daily Echo Beautifully written in simple rhyme, it is a book that can be read over and over again. Carousel Told with humour and a simple rhyming text. A wonderful, uncomplicated way of explaining things for a younger child. Cork News When I asked friends with more than one child which book they'd recommend on this subject, the one that came up time and again was this one. Parentdish This little board book tells it how it is through the eyes of a toddler. Cork Evening Echo It can be really difficult for a child to adapt to a new member of the family and books are a great way to introduce the idea... the one I most frequently recommend is Giles Andreae's 'There's A House Inside My Mummy'.
