Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
How do you answer your child's questions when you become pregnant again? What do you say to him or her about conception, labor, and the baby inside of you? This book is designed to help. Heidi Murkoff, co-author of What to Expect When Your Expecting, a popular guide for pregnant mothers, adds this parental aid to her "What to Expect Kids" books. With the help of Angus, a cuddly brown teddy bear, young readers are provided with answers to many of the questions they may have about their mothers' pregnancies. Some of the issues the book addresses include how the baby grows, where the baby is and how long it will be there, and why mommy is sick sometimes. Parents should probably read through the book first before presenting it to their child, but they should find it helpful in explaining pregnancy to their children. 2000, HarperFestival, $7.99. Ages 2 to 5. Reviewer: Sheree Van Vreede
