Description

A funny and tender board book story about a little boy waiting for his new brother or sister to arrive.

There's a house inside my mummy,
Where my little brother grows,
Or maybe it's my little sister
No one really knows.

Waiting for a new brother or sister to arrive can be a confusing and worrying time for young children. Sharing this simple rhyming story together is the perfect way to reassure your little one and involve them in all the excitement. Told with humour and warmth by Giles Andreae, the author of much-loved family favourite Giraffes Can't Dance.

'A great book for sharing with your first born while your second is still in the 'tummy house'' - The Times

A note from the author:
'When my wife became pregnant for the second time, I was talking to Flinn, our 2-year old son, about what was going to take place and how exciting it would be for him to have a brother or sister. I started to think about it as though I were a young child myself ... 'There's a house inside my mummy' was a phrase that just popped into my head, and from then on the book was a joy to write.'

Review quote

Creates a sense of security to encourage a young child to feel involved * Junior * A great book for sharing with your firstborn while your second is still in the 'tummy house'. * The Times * An everyday story made special by the gentle humour, simple rhyme and friendly pictures * The Independent * This clever story explores a child's perspective of his mummy being pregnant. Beautifully told in simple rhyme, it is a book that can be read over and over again * Carousel * When I asked friends with more than one child which book they'd recommend on the subject, the one that came up time and again was this one * parentdish.co.uk * This little board book tells it how it is through the eyes of a toddler * 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 * Scottish Book Trust * A popular book that captures the wonder and excitement of looking forward to a new member joining the family * Families Magazine * 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'. * Scottish Book Trust *
