About the Book:

Bursting with vibrant illustrations, this unique, interactive, and personalizable book is poised to become an indispensable treasure in every growing family's library. 

Filled to the brim with age-appropriate wisdom, the book arrived right before “National Sibling Day” and seamlessly weaves informative tidbits about pregnancy and birth and introduces tiny newborns and their marvelous milestones to eager young minds. But it's not just a journey of learning; it's an exploration of fun with fill-in-the-blank activities that spark creativity, along with easy crafts that ignite imaginations, and two sticker sheets with over 50 playful stickers, so kids can transform each page into a canvas of joy. 

A keepsake photo can be added to the cover of “You’re Going to Be a Big Sibling,” turning the book into a token of love and anticipation to be cherished for generations. Through the pages of this enchanting tome, Manon Chevallerau invites big siblings-to-be into a world of discovery, offering guidance and companionship as they embark on the adventure of siblinghood. 

From crafts, to journaling prompts, to heartfelt expressions, this book is more than a guide—it promises a bond that will endure a lifetime of laughter, love, and shared memories.

The interactive keepsake “You’re Going To Be A Big Sibling” offers: 

  • Fun illustrations
  • Age-appropriate information
  • Fill-in-the-blank activities
  • A keepsake cover that can be personalized with a photograph
  • Two sticker sheets with over 50 stickers
  • Easy crafts
  • And more!

The concept of the book originates from a sibling class Manon hosted at Casa Hogar Orphanage in Mexico. The goal was to teach the older siblings about the necessary tools and confidence they need to support and help their newborn siblings. Fast forward to today, this interactive workshop led to the creation of “You’re Going To Be A Big Sibling."
