I'm expecting a baby. I'm officially announcing here that I'm in my third trimester right now and my due date is next month. (And I'm super hoping the baby doesn't come too early because I want to finish up the Blogging A to Z Challenge!!)
Learning with Kidlit is an occasional feature I write to share books I've read covering certain topics. This month, I'm sharing some kidlit books about having a new baby in the house. I've been reading up on children's books about new babies, while sharing a few of the titles below with my daughter:
BRAND-NEW BABY BLUES by Kathi Appelt, Illust. by Kelly Murphy (Picture book- HarperCollins) In this rhyming book, a girl is jealous of the attention her new baby brother is receiving.
IRIS AND WALTER AND BABY ROSE by Elissa Haden Guest, Illust. by Christine Davenier (Early reader- Harcourt) Iris is annoyed with her new sister's fussiness.
PRIME BABY by Gene Luen Yang (Graphic novel for Middle Grade-First Second) A boy's new baby sister is connected to the alien world.
THE BOSS BABY by Marla Frazee (Picture book-Beach Lane) The new CEO of the household throws tantrums when he doesn't get attention.
THE BERENSTAIN BEARS' NEW BABY by Stan & Jan Berenstain (Picture Book-Random House) Published in 1974, this book is about Small Bear moving on from his baby bed to a bigger bed, right at the same time his little sister joins the family. (Jan Berenstain, who passed away recently, will be greatly missed.)
Any other expectant parents out there? Any other kidlit recommendations on this topic?
