Let’s Have A Look At The Book Blurb
When You Lived in My Belly
As a mom, Jodi Meltzer Darter answers, on average, one million questions per minute. One day, her son interrupted his endless “Why?” barrage to inquire about their innate bond: What was it like When You Lived in My Belly?
Delightful month-by-month storytelling of pregnancy from the perspective of both baby and mom, When You Lived in My Belly gives children a glimpse into a past they can’t remember, and takes moms back to a time they will never forget. It features kid-friendly descriptions of the developmental milestones babies reach in utero, coupled with the corresponding physical and emotional changes experienced by moms. This book also includes a page for moms to pen a personal note to their children about their individual pregnancy journey.
Jodi Meltzer Darter’s lyrical text alongside enchanting illustrations by Caryn King and Jody King Camarra creates a memorable keepsake that both moms and children will cherish for generations to come.

When You Lived In My Belly Has Become My New Go-To Gift For All The New Parents In My Life!
Jodi Darter’s When You Lived In My Belly is more than a book, it can be the start of a beautiful, ongoing conversation between mother and child. In a nutshell, the book tells the story of pregnancy, from both the mom and the baby’s point of view. It is a perfect book for those times when your little one might ask “where do babies come from?” The book offers parents a safe, comfortable, and fun way to answer those questions.
Imagine how much your little one would giggle when you read Jodi’s account of month one, “Sometimes I had to go to the potty real quick!” and then imagine how that same giggling child will curl closer to you as you read “I couldn’t wait to be your mommy!”
I really love the illustrations by Caryn King and Jody King Camarra. I believe kids will love the colors, and they will be fascinated to see how much they developed each month.
And as much as I think young kids will love having this book read to them I imagine it will be an equally special experience for older kids to reread this as they celebrate birthdays and milestones. I think that perhaps the most important day to reread When You Lived In My Belly together is on those inevitable difficult days when parents and children can not see eye to eye. It could provide the most perfect way for families to stop, take a breath, and remember how important they are to each other.
