Imagine what your life was like before you were born. What did you hear? How did you eat? What did you do to keep busy? Following up on the success of her first book for children, Baby Science: How Babies Really Work! author Ann Douglas explores the beginning of life from a new perspective. Looking at the world of an unborn baby as it grows in it's mother's womb, young readers are taken on a fascinating journey to see where they all began. For every child who is curious about his or her own beginnings, or who is expecting a younger sibling, Before You Were Born is the perfect guide. Vivid and engaging full color photographs and thoroughly delightful illustrations make this book as much fun to look at as it is to read. Before You Were Born is filled with interesting and informative baby facts: Unborn babies are better at finding and sucking their thumbs in utero than they are once they are born -- and they have to find their thumb in the dark! Listen to the swishing sounds that a dishwasher makes. That's the type of sound that babies constantly hear while in their mothers' wombs. Twin fetuses are almost always awake and asleep at the same time. Scientists have even seen twins pushing and shoving one another in their mother's uterus. Ann Douglas's lighthearted but informative text is wonderfully complemented by the gentle art of Eugenie Fernandes and touching photographs by Gilbert Duclos. Hands-on activities and Did You Know baby facts help young readers understand the science of life inside the womb.
