Book Sharing Monday:Before You were Born

We came across this book by Margaret Sheffield (illustrated by S.Bewley)  on one of our visits to the library. At the moment Defne is very much interested in how babies grow inside their mummys' tummy, how they eat there and how they breathe etc.
This picture book has beautiful,almost dreamy pictures so I just had to borrow it. This book is also good for preparing older siblings on the arrival of a new baby.
I understand that this is an old book and not widely available but if you can get hold of it on your library, I highly recommend it.

What have you been reading and enjoying with your children lately? I would love it if you come and share with us. Feel free to grab my button (on the right hand side) and share the love.

  2. So sweet and tender. Great post!

  3. What an interesting book. It would be perfect for someone expecting a second child.

  4. What a beautiful book! I am adding it to my list of books to have on hand during my next pregnancy. It definitely will be great for the future big sister. Thanks for sharing, Isil!

  5. How lovely and very appropriate for me to read to the girls right now. Thanks for that suggestion!

  6. Wow, what beautiful pictures. I'll be getting a copy of this for Talitha!
