The New Baby and Me!

Publisher: Tiny Owl

Five siblings eagerly await the arrival of their new baby brother, each with their own theory about what he will be like. One imagines him becoming an explorer, discovering new lands and beasts, while another is convinced he’ll be a pirate, sailing the high seas in search of treasure. However, when the baby arrives, there is one surprise that the children did not anticipate!

This joyful picture book beautifully celebrates the birth of a child and highlights the importance of recognising everyone’s unique qualities and interests. Ideal to share with children who are preparing to welcome a new baby into their lives, it will encourage discussion about individuality and future aspirations.

The charming collage illustrations are full of detail, creating a warm, imaginative setting for this delightful tale. At the end of the book, the illustrator has suggested some craft activities for children who may wish to create their own collage.
