How Big is Our Baby? By Smriti Prasadam-Halls, Britta Teckentrup (Illustrator) Cover Image
Email or call for price.


A month-by-month guide to pregnancy designed to encourage curiosity and bonding between soon-to-be siblings, while allaying fears about changes to come. It’s a gentle but fact-filled non-fiction take on a perennially popular picture book topic, comparing the size of the growing baby to something familiar to the young reader, such as a speck of sand at the seaside or an egg. Also features developmental facts, such as when fingernails first appear and when the reader might be able to feel the baby kick.

Praise For…

"This is a fun series that works well with the littles because of the colorful & engaging text! How Big is Our Baby is neat in that it gives littles the food comparison so they can picture just how big the baby is. It also has a few facts about that stage in development on each page. ... This is an adorable series to gift families who are growing."

"Honestly, these are essentially 'What to Expect When You’re Expecting' for the youngest among us! And I’m 100% here for it! Especially with the gorgeous illustrations from Britta Teckentrup!"
-- Little Cub Literacy

“… the perfect nine-month guide for children awaiting the arrival of their new baby sister or brother. …this book demonstrates the true miracle of this miraculous event!”
-- Meridian Magazine, "Newton's Book News"

"Prasadam-Halls anticipates children's worries and excitement throughout this informative month-by-month pregnancy overview for the preschool set. Using relatable examples to help readers visualize the stages of development, she compares the womb to 'a warm oven' and 'rich soil,' and likens everyday objects to the fetus's changing size: a jelly bean, an egg, and an eggplant, among others. ...offers an engaging way to connect preschoolers with their soon-to-be-siblings."
