about this item
These colorful tales are designed to help prepare older siblings for the arrival of a new baby brother or sister. By providing discussion prompts, these books help give parents the language needed to speak to their older children in a way that is supportive, complimentary, and caring. Through a variety of descriptions—from which toys are safe for babies and which are dangerous, to the importance of hand washing and picking up the baby only when a grown up is there to help—Sam and Amanda learn what it means to be a big brother or sister. A discussion about the real-life issue of parents' temporary absence while at the hospital prepares youngsters for what might otherwise be a confusing and frightening time. The books' handy tip sheets succinctly detail hints for supporting the older child and is accompanied by a download link for an MP3, containing upbeat and catchy tunes that emphasize the special bond between brothers and sisters.
Sam's mommy is pregnant and Sam is going to be a big brother. In this story Sam learns about preparing for the new baby's arrival and what it truly means to be a big brother.
