Here’s my pick for #kidslitpicks_newbeginnings. I’m really digging @kidlitpicks theme for the month: New Beginnings.
A new baby is a HUGE transition for anyone in the family. From my experience at work, children express a wide range of emotions when they find out another baby will be joining their family. Excitement, fear, confusion, the list of emotions goes on.
‘There’s A House Inside My Mummy’ is a rhyming book about a young boy who is learning about his mummy’s pregnancy. The rhyming verses makes the book flow easily & the book covers so much, from the questions the boy might have to how his mummy might be feeling during the pregnancy. 👶🏻
I read this book to my class leading up to my maternity leave at work. It’s a book that always remains on the classroom shelf as there is usually at least one child who has a pregnant family member. 🤰🏻
You could expand on this story by:
💛 Showing the child/class photos of an ultrasound. My class were particularly interested in my 20 week scan where you could see hands, feet, bones, etc.
🧡 Provide dolls for the child/class to explore & roleplay with. You could encourage the child/class to look after their own baby & provide them with items such as nappies, bottles, clothes & even a little bath. ❤️ Opening up a discussion about any further questions or feelings that they want to share. I know from my experience this book always inspires children to share their own experiences with babies. -
