A hilarious picture book to help prepare little ones for the arrival of a new baby and explain what’s going on in mummy’s tummy! From Kes Gray, author of the bestselling Oi Frog series.

There’s a baby growing inside Mum’s tum. At one month it’s just a blob, at three months it’s as big as Mum’s thumb and at four months it has teeny-tiny fingernails…

Waiting for a new baby can be a confusing and worrying time for young children. Share this laugh-out-loud story to reassure your little one and involve them in all the excitement. Told from a young child’s perspective, kids will love this funny count-down to the big day.

Clearly divided into nine months, each month the pages in the book get bigger, as the baby gets bigger too!

Reviews

The illustrations are bright and distinctive and the last double spread summarising the baby's development is most helpful and likely to encourage the young listeners to talk and question
Books for Keeps
A clear, often witty, text combines perfectly with the pictures to make this a most original picture book.

Contemporary wordplay for the text and a jaunty colour palette make this story about the development of a baby inside Rosy's mum appealing.
