Big Brother Big Sister Books

New baby on the way? The transition for the big brother or big sister(s) can benefit from a little preparation ahead of time. Unfortunately, I had a very hard time finding books that focused on the positive and realistic sides of having a new baby.
So many childrens books try to create a dramatic arc by setting up a conflict to resolve. This moves us in the wrong direction, since kids just hang on to the conflict instead of the resolution, learning ‘so this new baby is going to get tons of presents and mom is going to love the new baby more than she loves me.’ Um, not the message I am trying to impart!

So we scoured high and low and found a few books that actually do a great job of illustrating life with a new baby in a fun, warm, and expectant way. Check out our new book selection here
