Recently published: Baby Belly by Patricia Martin

This short, wordless picture book for the youngest children is absolutely delicious. With delicate illustrations reminiscent of those by Helen Oxenbury, young readers watch as a young child observes his mother’s expanding girth due to pregnancy. The child tries to figure out what is happening. He even tries to replicate the look with a balloon. When the baby is born, he observes that his mom’s back to her usual shape.

This book is so very cute and can open the door to discussion on this life event. I give this one five stars. Adults will like it too!

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this read in exchange for an honest review.
