    One thought on “What to Expect When Mommy's Having a Baby”

    1. My 8-year old niece is reading it to me and looking at pictures. She reads so good too. I enjoyed the reading! We asked, what are some healthy foods we like to eat: she picked salad and I picked apples and watermelon. She said we should also have exercise clothes like the dog and family does in the book. Great illustrations on showing the stages of the baby too.I had to help with the word, "umbilical" cord. Otherwise, she did very good at reading the story to me.
