Book Review: Nine Months: Before a Baby Is Born by Miranda Paul is a lovely book for talking to young children about pregnancy and how the baby grows.
A short overview of this book
Nine Months: Before a Baby Is Born by Miranda Paul is a wonderful book for talking to young children about pregnancy and how the baby (or fetus) develops whilst it is inside the womb.
What I like about this book are the beautifully detailed illustrations of the fetus, from conception until it is born. Each page tells a story of a child who is awaiting their new sibling, but the corresponding page shows what the baby looks like, and discusses what they can do eg listen to noises outside the womb. The book starts with the sperm and egg joining together but does not discuss how that happens.
It is a lovely book that is perfect for talking about where babies come from.
