Countdown to My Birth (by Julie B. Carr, Meadowbrook Press) 

I don't know about you, but every time I have found out I was expecting the first thing I would do is track the progress of my growing baby.  I have every pregnancy countdown book known to man!  I guess it's a fantastic way to grow the bond between you and baby from the very beginning!  From their first heartbeat, to their growing fingernails, to their first swallow of amniotic fluid, to the delivery.

I was recently given some books to review by author, Julie B. Carr with Motherly Way Enterprises Inc.  The first book I want to tell you about Is, Countdown to My Birth.  This daily pregnancy flipbook is perfect for any new mom-to-be.  The book is a compact size that will fit perfectly on anyone's desk or small table.  The book stands upright and you flip one page a day to find out exciting developmental facts!  There are over 270 engaging facts all written entirely from the baby's point of view.  This book is absolutely adorable, yet very informative!  I wish I had this book with all my pregnancies, it is definitely my new favorite!!  The book is made with strong pages that you can write and personalize with your own due dates.  The book has 286 pages with a SRP of only $14.95!!  I definitely recommend this book to all new moms-to-be!

With my last pregnancy I was not the only one keeping track of the baby's progress.  I had another big fan who was too excited to be a big brother!  every morning  we would read together the baby's progress report.  While grocery shopping he was always looking over the fruit to try and compare the size of the baby.  Julie B. Carr also wrote a book called, Making Me: The Pregnancy Activity Book for My Big Brother or Sister.  This hardcover book is specifically designed to educate, excite, and involve the big brother or sister, ages 5-10 in mom's new pregnancy.  This book is full of age appropriate information and activities and allows the big brother or sister to bond with the new baby-to-be from the start.  The book includes four colored pencils and a measuring tape to track the unborn baby's growth.  This book is also written in the baby's voice to their older sibling.  With 286 pages with an SRP of $24.95 this price can't be beat!  This book will not disappoint and is such a fun way for your other children to stay excited and involved in your entire pregnancy!

If you are a mommy-to-be or know someone close to you who is, I highly recommend checking these books out!  Julie B. Carr did an awesome job presenting all the facts of the developing baby in a fun interactive way!
