Book Review: What’s Growing in Mommy’s Tummy? by Rachel Qiuqi-Li is a lovely book for talking to young children about pregnancy.
A short overview of this book
What’s Growing in Mommy’s Tummy? by Rachel Qiuqi-Li is a simple book for talking with young children about pregnancy. It doesn’t talk about sexual intercourse, how a baby is made or how it comes out. Instead, it talks about how the baby grows bigger, comparing it to different sized fruit. This will help children with visualising how big the baby is, but just remind them that it isn’t really fruit inside the pregnant tummy (and that it is a baby). Young children can be concrete thinkers, so some kids may be confused.
