Growing Up Just Got Easier...

With the help of Angus, the lovable Answer Dog, best-selling author Heidi Murkoff extends a hand to children and parents as they tackle life's first experiences together.

Congratulations -- you're having another baby! You're excited and a little nervous, but most of all you're wondering how you're going to explain this miraculous, but complex, process to your older, but still very young, child. We're here to help you answer your child's questions about how a baby is created, how it grows, and how it comes out to join the family.

Have fun!

Review:

With a little handholding (or paw-holding) from Angus the Answer Dog, Mommy's first-born can be guided happily and intelligently through the often bewildering experience of becoming an older sibling. For children who are about to lose their only-child status (or their youngest-child status, in larger families), this read-aloud book is a treasure. On each two-page spread, Angus asks a question: "Where is the baby?" "How did the baby get in there?" "Can the baby hear and see me?" "Why doesn't Mommy feel well sometimes?" and more, each question anticipating the next. He answers these queries with clarity, sensitivity, and attention to age-appropriateness that will be a huge relief to parents and children. Each section has a little game or idea to help children understand what's happening in their family. The introduction invites parents to add to or edit the information provided, according to their own child-rearing philosophies.

Heidi Murkoff, coauthor of the bestselling pregnancy book, What to Expect When You're Expecting, writes lucidly and honestly in all the books in the tremendously appealing What to Expect series for young children, including What to Expect When You Use the Potty and What to Expect When You Go to the Doctor. Laura Rader's cartoonish illustrations are fun and reassuring. Poor Angus will be dog-eared in no time! (Ages 2 to 5) --Emilie Coulter
