I'm Important Too! - A New Baby by Jen Green


I'm Important Too! - A New Baby by Jen Green

One of a series for young children that explores what it is like to go through a number of significant new experiences, this sensitive and entertaining book thoughtfully helps children to understand their feelings about the addition of a baby to their family. Written from a child's point of view, it shows how negative feelings about the birth of a baby can be dealt with and how there are many good things about it too. The humourous illustrations not only enable the reader to relate the book to their everyday life but also stimulate discussion about the experience. Notes for parents, carers and teachers help adults use the book most effectively with their children and include ideas for using it in literacy classes. Mike Gordon is a highly successful illustrator whose work for Wayland has established a respected information book brand.
