Before You Were Born: A Lift-the-flap Children’s Book


For expectant mothers and curious little kids, and especially for kids with siblings on the way, it is an interactive storybook that delivers delight and information and reassurance, too.

It’s the mystery of mysteries for soon-to-be older siblings: what’s going on inside a pregnant mother’s belly? BEFORE YOU WERE BORN, a joyful lift-the-flap book for children, that tells the parallel story of mother and baby during the nine months of pregnancy.

Each page shows what’s happening to the mother on the outside and then, under the flap, in the mother’s belly to the baby on the inside. Children learn how Mommy is feeling and how the baby is developing, about hiccups, kicks, and umbilical cords, a first heartbeat, and the contractions that mark the beginning of labour.
