My Big Moments is a series of picture books that help children cope with challenges, changes and milestones they may face in their early life. The books are written for children aged 2-7 years in consultation with experts in child psychology, play therapy and neuroscience education. They empower children with language and ideas, developing resilience for handling the challenges, changes and milestones that will shape their lives. As adult and child sit and read together, the books start conversations about how to navigate some of life’s little bumps in the road, turning tricky situations into positive, empowering experiences.
Baby On the Way is the perfect story for preparing for a new sibling!
The arrival of a new baby can bring many changes to a family unit and all this change can be hard for older siblings to handle. But parents can do a lot to prepare kids for an addition to the family. Discussing the pregnancy in terms that make sense to kids, making some arrangements, and including kids in the care of the newborn can make things easier for everyone.
There's a baby on the way for Perry's family. He's going to be a big brother. Perry isn't sure what a big brother should do. Luckily, his good friend, Frankie, comes along to help him figure it all out.
At the back of each book is a page just for the grown-ups to explain what a child’s needs and concerns may be and practical ideas for you to support them through each situation. With a little extra help during these big moments, a daunting experience can become an empowering one.
