Becoming a big sibling

I'm Big Now

It can be a confusing time for children when they find out there's going to be a new addition to the family - from understanding what pregnancy is right through to trying to work out what will happen when their baby sibling arrives.

These books explore all those issues, from what takes place when someone finds out that they're expecting to the thorny issue of sibling rivalry.
