Becoming a big brother or big sister is a pretty big task for a little one. We’re welcoming a daughter soon and have been starting to prepare our son for his new role as big brother.
Books play a big role in our daily life. Our son loves when we read to him and we sometimes catch him reading to himself. “Reading,” I should say.
Like most other occasions, I’ve purchased a few books to read to my toddler on becoming a big brother. Here are a few of our favorites and some others you can check out for older and toddler age kids!
