You Are New: (New Baby Books for Kids, Expectant Mother Book, Baby Story Book) (Hardcover)
Is it just me or are a lot of people you know expecting? A tiny, newborn creature is always something to celebrate, and after a long, dark year like 2020, the birth of a new family member or friend feels especially hopeful. But how do you warmly welcome a baby into the world when you may not be able to cuddle them with abandon? As a bookseller I’m admittedly biased, but I think books are the second best way to impart love and comfort when many of us are socially distanced. You Are New—with its bright illustrations, sweet rhymes, and cheeky humor—provides a wonderful welcome to any human learning what it’s like to be new. -Emma— From 2020 Holiday Recommendations
