In this true story, young August learns about how he will get a new little brother. He learns of how his little brother will grow in someone else’s tummy, not his mommy’s. Will he look like Augie? Will he grow for too long? Will Augie get to take his little brother home once he is born? Join August on this new, exciting adventure of getting a new little brother in a very unique way. If you are looking for a way to help your children understand that families can be created in many different ways, this is a story to keep on your bookshelf!
First off I want to just say that this book is a phenomenal true story written about the authors Life experiences. Sometimes it’s hard to get children to understand how their mom is growing a baby in her tummy – how much more confusing would it be if that baby was growing in a stranger’s tummy!?! In this gorgeous book the author does a fantastic job at explaining the situation to her son so that he understands. He is still somewhat worried about his baby brother not being able to go home with them, but those worries are calmed when they are leaving the hospital.
I’m a huge fan of kid lit that broaches subjects that can be uncomfortable for some parents to explain to their children. This book is wonderfully written and illustrated, and comes in a stunning hardcover!
Having battled Crohn’s Disease for most of her life and after undergoing 82 abdominal surgeries, Brandi Pearce knew she wouldn’t be able to carry children of her own. After a successful surrogacy resulted in her son, August, years later, she wondered how to explain to August that he was getting a new brother who was growing in someone else’s belly. That’s when Mommy’s Oven, Pearce’s debut children’s, book was born. Pearce wants other parents to be able to teach their own children that every family creation is unique and special. She hopes to inspire hope in overcoming adversity, as well as true miracles with this book.
