There’s Going to Be a Baby
John Burningham, Helen Oxenbury
From two of the world’s best-loved picture-book creators, an absolute gem for new-siblings-to-be.
When is the baby coming? What will we call it? What will the baby do? We don’t really need the baby, do we? As the arrival of a new sibling draws nearer, the questions that stream through a young child’s mind are followed with sensitivity and humour in this enchanting book. Exquisitely illustrated by Helen Oxenbury, these pages brim with love, excitement and reassurance as the child in the story imagines all kinds of colourful futures for the brother or sister he is waiting to meet. Full of warmth and promise, this is an instant and timeless classic.
"Funny, beautifully observed and rewarding to reread, right through to a baby's arrival and beyond." (Nicolette Jones, Sunday Times) "A very special book... warm, emotional and reassuring." (Bookseller)"
