A reissue of Kes Gray's picture book. It is a funny, colourful, and clever book that will provide perfect entertainment for young children.
The story traces the 9 months during which a family await the birth of a new baby. Written from the eyes of a small child, we are given hilariously funny descriptions of the development of the baby in Mum's tummy and accounts of family life as the baby's birth draws near. Each month, the pages in the book get bigger, reflecting increase of time and size, until at the end the pages are full size, as is the baby, ready to be born.
This book will appeal to all young children, and will assist their understanding and development.
"The illustrations are bright and distinctive and the last double spread summarising the baby's development is most helpful and likely to encourage the young listeners to talk and question" - Books for Keeps
"The funny descriptions of both the developing baby and accounts of family life make it an excellent and informative book" - Family Interest Magazine
