Overview

When a new baby is on the way, the youngest in the family needs to be prepared. Yet, if that child is a toddler, how can parents find the words? Using simple text and basic concepts, A Baby of Our Own shows what’s involved in welcoming and caring for a newborn… and how exiting a time it is for the entire family!

The big brother in this story is only three, but he quickly learns to wash his hands before holding his new sibling, practices using a soft and gentle touch, and marvels at how small she is! He really enjoys the extra mitzvos all big brothers and sisters can do, like bringing diapers or the pacifier. The baby’s loud cries are startling, but he soon learns they have an important purpose.

Most of all, this big boy realizes that when Hashem sends a new baby, there’s plenty of love to go around!

A Baby of Our Own features the same loving family that appeared in What Did Pinny Do? The heartwarming illustrations are filled with wonder and curiosity as the new baby settles in and becomes part of the family. A perfect book for preparing young children for the birth or adoption of a new baby!
