Mamihood Series: Parenting Siblings & Sibling Picture Books

By Li Yun Alvarado

By Li Yun Alvarado

My second kiddo is less than a year old, so I have no words of wisdom on the sibling front. Here are the books I've turned to or am now turning to now to figure it all out. I'll update this list as I learn more. Wish me luck!

 

The picture books were great for helping us introduce our preschooler to the idea of being an older sibling.
