Making Me: The Pregnancy Activity Book for My Big Brother/Sister Giveaway

One of the great ways I foudn to prepare the older child for your new arrival is books! There are tons of books all about being a Big Brother or Sister! I found this great book Making Me: The Pregnancy Activity Book for My Big Brother/Sister by Julie Carr. Julie was nice enough to send me a copy of her book to giveaway to one of my readers.

Making Me: The Pregnancy Activity Book for My Big Brother/Sister is great for children who are 5 years-10 years old. And it is best to get it when you first find out you are expecting beucase the acitivtes take the big brother/sister through the entire pregnanacy.

Here is some more information about the book.

CONGRATULATIONS! You're going to be a big brother or sister!
I want to teach you about me, the baby-to-be, and make this pregnancy as fun as possible for you. Every day, from the time I'm just a single cell to the day I'm born, I will let you know what's happening with me. I'll also have something fun for you to do each day, whether it's coloring, counting, measuring, jumping, journaling, or something else. Wow! Learning *and* having fun. What a concept.

You'll be able to see how big I am with the Mighty Measuring Tape and can track the days to my due date with the cool Countdown Car on every page.

Bonus features!
- Includes 4 colored pencils to help you write, color, and draw.
- Includes the 24" Mighty Measuring Tape to track my growth.
- Hard cover, 286 pages.
