Bébé ventre, by Aurore Petit
After the bestseller A Mum It’s Like A House, Aurore Petit recounts in a delicate and sensitive manner the arrival of a second child. She details the steps of a new pregnancy from the point of view of the new child. If the baby to come tells us what he or she feels and perceives inside the belly, we, the readers, discover him or her from the outside with for example the first time we hear the baby’s heartbeat or the announcement to the future big brother.
The bright coloured illustrations enable the reader to explore a whole new world of sensations (noises, the touch of the hands on mom’s belly, the taste of sweet flavours…). Aurore Petit delicately invites us into a very intimate yet universal subject matter. The birth, at the end of this picture book, is the start of a new life.
