As my birth approaches (well, let’s not get too hasty I have a few more months to go being “preg-neat-o”) I’ve looked around for books to read to Ari about becoming a big brother. I took a book out from the library that was all about introducing the idea of pregnancy to toddlers, i.e. a”what’s in mommy’s belly” sort of thing, but he was totally uninterested.

That’s why when Little One Books allowed me the opportunity to review a couple of their products, one of the key items on the list for me was a book about Ari’s impending big brother role. I wanted the book in question to be age appropriate, so I searched the 2 year old section on their site.

In the process of my search I found this book:

I decided to read it to him first thing in the morning. I figured he would be too out of it to protest. I was right. He agreed to listen to the book, and actually became excited about it.

The author of this book is quite clever, because she mixes in pictures of things that 2 year old books care for, like trucks for example.

Ari was also happy to point out many random facts about the book, including (not not limited to) the fact that the baby was wearing a seat belt.

I know he enjoyed the book, because after it was over he said “again!” and made me read it at least two more times. I hope the book will sink in and get him acclimated to his role as “big brother” which is fast approaching.

By the way, I am currently running a $25 gift certificate giveaway to Little One Books.
