Continuing her series for preschoolers, New York Times best-selling author Robie H. Harris follows the stages of pregnancy and childbirth in a matter-of-fact and comfortable way. Gus and Nellie have some exciting news: there's going to be a baby in their family! Join them through the seasons as they watch their mother's pregnancy with fascination and curiosity while awaiting the birth of their new baby sibling. Combining accessible, humorous, and accurate illustrations; conversations between the two siblings; and a factual text, here is the ideal book to help young children understand that the way a growing baby develops inside a woman's body, and how a baby is born, are both perfectly normal and totally wonderful.

Review quote

Clear, direct and anatomically correct; an excellent entryway for the many anticipated questions about childbirth.
--Kirkus Reviews This book is suitable for young children who are just beginning to ask the question, "Where do babies come from?" ... [A] good first book to recommend to parents.
--School Library Journal Correct terminology is used for body parts, but there's nothing clinical about the down-to-earth writing... Creating a cheerful, easygoing tone on every double-page spread, the digital line-and-wash illustrations portray a biracial family within a diverse community. A helpful book for presenting information and opening discussions with young children who are curious about pregnancy and birth.
--Booklist Westcott's chummy, affectionate multicultural cast will once again successfully open parent/child discussion on building a family -- whatever the family.
--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books In this introduction to pregnancy that is as charming as it is anatomically-correct, the story of an expectant family is interwoven with playful, cutaway drawings of the growing fetus -- first the size of an apple seed, then a peach, then finally a sweet, swaddled bundle named Jake.
--Slate
