Mommy Loves You Just the Same is a beautifully written and illustrated picture book that explains the importance of letting a child know that they still are important and loved when a new sibling comes into the family.
The mother sharing the pregnancy and encouraging the child to read to and sing to, just to generally do things that encourage bonding with the new sibling is portrayed well through the text and illustrations.
A parent note at the beginning of the book gives the parent helpful suggestions to guiding your child through the experience of adding a sibling to the family.
This is a book Parables Magazine highly recommends for children ages 3-7. A new family member can be a trying time for a young child and this book helps to make that time a little less stressful while affirming a parents love for their child.
