When I told a friend that I was pregnant, she was raving about a book that I should buy to read to the bambino which could get her prepared for the arrival of ‘baby 2’. She couldn’t remember the name but yesterday when I was reading excerpts from Louise Redknapp’s recent blog post for The Mirror where she talked about the impending birth of her second child, she mentioned the book and I knew it was the same one.
There’s a House Inside My Mummy is by Giles Andreae, the creator of Purple Ronnie and illustrator Vanessa Cabban. It tells an endearing story of a little boy waiting for his little brother or sister to arrive. It features rhyming text for the story which can really help to engage your child and they’re also likely to remember it.
The bambino loves reading and being read to so we’ll definitely be buying this. It’s Â£3.77 (RRP Â£5.99) from the Bambino Goodies Amazon Store. I’ve also added a few other books on the subject that are also quite popular.
