So when I found out I was pregnant, one of the first things I got was a Big Sister book for Emma. It ended up being that that’s how “she” told her grandparents that I was pregnant. I taped my first ultrasound picture inside the first page of the book so when they saw it, it would really hit them that Emma was already a Big Sister to be!
Caroline Jayne Church books are my favorites, when I was pregnant with Emma and looking for baby books I immediately fell in love with the sweet pictures and simple words in her books and ended up getting a bunch of her books for Emma’s library.
Check out the books pictured above, in order:
I Am a Big Sister! and I Am a Big Brother!– Like I mentioned above, I really love the illustrations and short but sweet words.
You Were the First– So I’m probably not alone when I admit that when I first found out I was expecting, I felt really guilty about having another baby because Emma was/is my baby! But this book is sweet, and if you are pregnant, you’ll sure get at least teary eyed while reading this to your little one!
You’re Getting a Baby Brother & You’re Getting a Baby Sister– These books are funny, but make sure you have a sense of humor. If your child is older, they might get a little scared of their baby brother “peeing in their eye” or their baby sister ” pulling their hair. The illustrations are cute and funny too.
I’m A Big Sister and I’m A Big Brother– Adorable pictures with a gender neutral baby, wording is for older siblings, I would say 3 years and up.
My New Baby– Cute book, both siblings are pretty gender neutral!
Big Sisters are the BEST and Big Brothers are the BEST– Cute books, they compare what a big sibling does and what a baby does, and shows how the big siblings can help mom and dad.
Did you buy any books for your first child when you found out you were expecting?
