by Jodi Meltzer Darter
As a mom, Jodi Meltzer Darter answers, on average, one million questions per minute. One day, her son interrupted his endless “Why?” barrage to inquire about their innate bond: What was it like when I lived in your belly?
A delightful month-by-month storytelling of pregnancy from the perspective of both baby and mom, When You Lived in My Belly gives children a glimpse into a past they can’t remember, and takes moms back to a time they will never forget. It features kid-friendly descriptions of the developmental milestones babies reach in utero, coupled with the corresponding physical and emotional changes experienced by moms. This book also includes a page for moms to pen a personal note to their children about their individual pregnancy journey.
Jodi Meltzer Darter’s lyrical text alongside enchanting illustrations by Caryn King and Jody King Camarra create a memorable keepsake that both moms and children will cherish for generations to come.
