Books about the New Baby for Older Siblings

Looking for books before baby is born? Click here to browse recommended books about Pregnancy and Birth for Children.

Lots of fabulous books to prepare big siblings. Many of these will be available at the library, or gently used for low prices online. Or you can snuggle in at a bookstore and read them. But you may want to buy your favorites to read them over and over when times get tough. Many of the books here (especially lower on this list) share the theme of an ambivalent older sibling who comes to love the new arrival, which is a pretty good model to give older kids.

Please note: These books are Amazon links with photos of the books. If you are not seeing them on your page, it may be that your browser is not picking them up. Please try a different browser. Enjoy!

DOES THIS KIND OF PARENTING WORK?

Folks, she's brilliant. It's wonderful to have parenting experts who don't see the child as the enemy in a locked combat, for one thing. I recommend it.
