Best Books for New Big Sisters

Test

Bringing a new baby home is such an exciting and special time for any family. The wait is finally over and it is time for everyone at home to meet the new arrival. But how can we prepare older siblings for the reality of getting to know their new brother or sister?

When we have older children, our biggest concern is often how the rest of the family will adapt to our little bundle of joy. Toddlers, in particular, may have a lot of questions or may be wholly unprepared for the disruption to their lives that having a baby sister or brother can bring! 

Either way, becoming a big sister is a huge step, one that is exciting, emotional and sometimes overwhelming. Luckily there are lots of books for big sisters to help with the journey.

These sweet picture books will help start conversations with toddlers about what to expect and how to be a big sister.

Books can also be the perfect big sister gifts from baby to get them excited about the cuddles, laughter and fun that await. 

Discover our list below of must-have big sister books, when a baby’s on the way.
