My four year--old son loved this book.
R. Black
Every couple of weeks she'd bring me the book and we'd read about what was happening inside, and compare the book's pictorials of the baby to my tummy.
Emily
Great for big brother or big sister as they await the new member of the family.

Too often new baby brother/sister books fall into one of two categories. They are either narrative tales with specific characters and situations or they are nonfiction texts with lots of information. Not saying that either type is bad, of course. The narratives are perfect for helping children discover through story and character how others deal with similar situations and feelings, but they may not offer a lot of information to answer questions a child may have. The nonfiction is helpful for answering questions, but may be inappropriate or inaccessible for a younger child. That said, I was excited to see this book enter my library.

What's Inside your Tummy, Mommy? is a large paperback book--larger than most picture books, which may make it harder to shelve, but is perfect to demonstrate with close to lifesize pictures the growth of the baby inside the womb. Each 2-page spread of the book covers a month's growth and development. The pictures are simple line drawing and color, giving them a basic cartoonish look, but not silly or exaggerated. On the left side of each page is some informational text, on the right side a drawing of a pregnant woman's abdomen and her womb where the baby is growing. The concept makes the book easy to follow and move from month to month as the baby grows.

The book is not heavy on text, but it manages to convey a huge amount of information through what text it chooses to use and the visual imagery on each page spread. Each spread opens with a large text stating the month, then the number of the weeks that month covers.

We got this for our toddler daughter to help her understand what's going on in my belly. It's cute, but I don't think she really gets where we are on the timeline, so she may be a little young for it. My one big complaint about this, though, is that one half of every page shows the baby at it's "current" size, you're supposed to hold it up to your belly to help your kid understand and picture it... but I think at some point they must have changed the size of the book they were printing without resizing these drawings, because the pictures are WAY too big! The head on the baby that's ready to be born is as big as my almost-3-year-old's head!! Since this is geared toward mommy's that already have a kid (since presumably that's who you're buying the book for), most probably won't be too thrown by that, but every time I see the size they've drawn the last few months it does bring up that "ugh, right, that part hurts like hell coming out!" feeling, which is not what I want to be reminded of and the too-large pictures really do make that worse. It would be nice if the publisher would fix that, if they did I'd give this book 4 stars.

This is great for children of all ages. It shows the actual size of the baby as each month goes by. The mom can actually hold the book up to her tummy so the child can see how big it is in the mom's tummy. It also describes all of the baby's development in simple terms as time goes by. Good for very young because it doesn't go into conception.

Other reviews mentioned how off the scale was of the baby inside the book. Supposedly, its suppose to be to scale. This is true...its kinda hilarious though towards the end. No biggie. My kids are 6 and 3, they get the idea. It has cute comparisons and what the baby is doing inside mommy's tummy each month. Almost every day, in the first few months, they would ask what the baby looks like now, and want to look in the book.

It's for kids, its a cute book. Adults may find it funny how the scale gets more inaccurate towards the end of the book. Just correct this and tell the kid(s), its a hard thing for them to grasp anyway!!

Great for little one to follow each month of pregnany. I bought this for my son and he loved it. Made him feel like he had some part of it too. Love to hold it to my belly.

My 6 year old daughter loved this book while I was pregnant with her sister. Every couple of weeks she'd bring me the book and we'd read about what was happening inside, and compare the book's pictorials of the baby to my tummy. Made it very exciting and real to her.
