Product Details

Praise

* “This touching book describes milestones both inside and outside of a mother’s belly over the course of nine months. . . . Children both young and old will be captivated by the details of fetal development and the story of a family preparing for and welcoming a new member.”—Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

* “Caldecott Honoree Chin’s detailed gouache and watercolor illustrations skillfully depict the changes in the fetus month to month, they also show the family of three and their activities. Verso pages have drawings of the fetus developing while the recto pages show the family’s movements as they wait and prepare for the new infant. Pictures of Month Four through Month Nine reveal the actual size of the growing baby, while the illustrations of the first three months tell what the size would be and show a magnified illustration. . . . A fun and interesting addendum, titled “More About Babies,” consists of four pages and is filled with facts about babies before they are born.”Booklist, Starred Review
 
* “This appealing treatment of the subject strikes a perfect balance between biology—minus the birds and bees—and a gentle relevancy for young, soon-to-be siblings.”Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
 

“A bright, savvy heads-up for younger children in growing families; equally useful for shaping expectations and providing realistic glimpses of what’s going on inside a pregnant person.”School Library Journal


Nine Months is a beautifully balanced celebration and explanation of how babies develop in utero, and how families prepare, just right for siblings-to-be and their parents.” —Shelf Awareness
