Room for the Baby by Michelle Edwards
(Random House) Michelle Edwards does it again, with her new story for kids who are awaiting a new baby in the house!
In her story, the mom has a lot of items that she’s kept to recycle and reuse — some day. Sounds familiar?! Now, a baby is on the way, and the big brother-to-be is helping mom and dad make room for new baby, and not only they find room for the baby, but also a lot of everyday discarded items that they can recycle into useful items for her.
Filled with practical uses of the new and used supplies you have held onto “for future use,” this story is sure to appeal to your children who experience the love of crafts in their household, and awaiting their new sibling’s arrival.
Following is a quote from the publisher’s website: “Inspired by her creativity, the neighbors get involved, and soon everyone is stitching and knitting something. As the months go by and the family celebrates the Jewish holidays from Passover to Hanukkah, big brother helps his mom get ready, too. But things move slowly and he continues to worry: will there ever be room for the baby?”
