What to Expect When the New Baby Comes Homeby Heidi Murkoff
What to Expect When Mommy's Having a Baby helped guide children through Mommy's pregnancy. Now after months of preparation, anticipation, and a bit of anxiety, the much-talked-about new baby is finally coming home! In What to Expect When the New Baby Comes Home, best-selling parenting expert Heidi Murkoff and Angus, the lovable "Answer Dog", return to help toddlers and preschoolers make the transition from only child to older sibling. Angus is cute, he's cuddly, and he's got all the answers to questions ranging from the basics such as "What do new babies eat?" and "Why do new babies cry so much?" to more significant concerns like "Why do new babies get so many presents?"
What to Expect When the New Baby Comes Home will reassure young children with the same distinctive humor, warmth, and fun that has defined the What to Expect Kids series.

This book has a great concept, but is horribly executed!!!! There are WAY TOO MANY WORDS for a toddler/pre-schooler. The book is set up in paragraph form. Good luck getting your child to sit there long enough to read the first page let alone the whole book!!! This book would probably be well suited for 5yrs and up, not 2-5yrs!!!
This book was too advanced for my 19 month old, so I gave it to a friend with a 3-year old who's expecting their second child soon - much more appropriate age group for this book.
