Mummy's tummy is growing round - the new baby's coming. What will I do, I wonder, to welcome the new baby? As the seasons pass, Emma makes her own song from the sounds she hears, all to share with her new little brother when he finally arrives. This sweet, lyrical story is a celebration of sounds and seasons, nature and family. This is a beautiful, reassuring book, perfect for any child preparing for a new little sister or brother.
A little girl shares the sounds of the seasons with her soon-to-be-born baby brother in this comforting celebration of new siblings.
Marsha Diane Arnold wrote magazine articles before books, in a much-loved weekly column entitled "homegrown treasures." The column was honoured three times with a California Newspaper Association's Best Local Columnist award. She has been described as someone who "finds a universe in her backyard," which is what she aims to do with her picture books. Marsha enjoys sharing her love of stories in many ways, but most of all, reading to her granddaughter Grainne. She grew up on the Kansas prairies, lived in Northern California most of her life, and now, with her husband, calls Florida home. When not creating imaginative worlds and wacky characters, Marsha enjoys travelling the world, scuba diving and snorkelling, hiking, creating beautiful gardens to surrounding her home, and, like her characters, always trying new things.
