The New Baby

By Lie Dirkx



October 2015



Introducing a young child to the idea of a new sibling can be a tricky venture. This activity book offers parents a way of starting a conversation with their child about the baby developing in mummy’s tummy. By doodling, colouring in and engaging with the illustrations, the older sibling is invited to think and talk about themselves, and in doing so, to think about the new baby and what life might be like when it arrives.
