Getting Ready for a New Baby:

I wrote this as our first unit for my daughter when I was expecting a new baby. I found the books Everywhere Babies and A Baby Sister for Frances to be especially helpful during this time.

I also recommend the Doll Sling from Nova Natural.

This is a perfect complement to the lovely book A Ride on Mother's Back: A Day of Baby Carrying Around the World.
