There are many available pregnancy books for children. When it comes to adding a new baby in your life, books are a great way to introduce the concept to the new brother or sister. My kids loved to read books about pregnancy and birth. Here are my favorite pregnancy books for children.
This sweet book talks about the birth of a baby. It shows illustrations of the mom giving birth (not graphic at all) and holding her baby. It even shows the umbilical stump. This story is about all of the people awaiting the baby and how happy they are to be there when it's a Birth Day! Appropriate for all ages.
This book shows how mom's pregnancy effects the whole family from needing more rest and growing larger to feelings of being left out when the new baby gets here. Nice illustrations, with text called out for older children and suggestions for parents. Appropriate for all ages.
With the lovely Lennart Nilsson photos, you see a baby grow from a few cells to their first birthday. Though this time it's following the story of two children who are expecting a baby. It talks about how a baby is born without going into a lot of detail and discusses life with the new baby. Appropriate for all ages.
7. Our New Baby
A really cute and sweet homebirth book for little kids from 3-8. The photos are engaging with few exceptions. It makes it easy to explain what a homebirth will look like and sound like.
