Nina and the Baby Sprout

Matilda Ruta

When mothers have babies in their belly it’s a secret. But it shows anyway. They throw up, stop smoking, laugh like they are about to cry and kiss one on the head eight times. They are sneaky while they tell grandmother – She does not know yet, but I’ll tell her. Soon.
It’s often fun to think that I will become a big sister. Other days one needs to write lists.
1. The baby cannot borrow my beads.
2. It cannot be born on my birthday.
3. And if it screams too much, I’ll move in with dad, one
shouts. Do you get it?

Getting a sibling is a big deal. Imagine that suddenly your own adults get a baby so that you can become a sibling! But actually it’s Chance that determines everything. And Chance can be quite mischievous.

Unique explorative storytelling.
Great picture book art for preschool children.
