I received a free copy of this product as a member of The Booklook Bloggers Program in exchange for writing a review.  All opinions are my own.

I am a big believer in the power of books to help kids (and adults, too!) deal with life's challenges and adjustments.

That's why I feel this book can be so helpful to families about to welcome a new little bundle of  joy into the mix:

This 20-page board book has a nice, squishy cover and features adorable animal families who are getting to know their newest family member - either in their arms or their mother's tummy.

How sweet is this little squirrel kissing his mommy's belly?

The rhyming verse is cheery and sweet and includes an extra-special touch on each page where the font changes to highlight a bit of the text.

The font change is simple, but adds an extra-special touch.

The topics covered include waiting for baby's arrival, what life will be like once the little one makes an appearance and the bond that siblings can share.

Now each family is a little fuller!

These topics are handled in such a gentle manner and I feel this book is the perfect choice to begin easing a child into his or her new role as big brother or sister.

Although this is a board book and clearly appropriate for the youngest siblings to enjoy, I also feel older children (through the early elementary years) can appreciate its special message and help during this transitional time.

My mom has always been so great about bringing a little gift for the siblings whenever a new baby arrives, so this sweet book would be the perfect accompaniment to a new baby or shower gift!

You can get a copy of the book here to give as a gift or to present to your own child when you announce the exciting news that your little family is growing!
