When You Were in My Belly follows the story of three diverse families as they each plan for the new addition to their lives. Each parent celebrates this special time in their own unique way. From visits to the doctor's office, shopping for cribs and strollers, and choosing a special name, the book follows the journey before the birth of a child. When You Were in My Belly celebrates the universal story of childbirth and how parents begin to show love for their child long before they are born.
Debut author Kara Michelle Liu teams up with illustrator Hanji Kim to create When You Were in My Belly, a picture book designed to capture the excitement felt during the months leading up to the birth of a child.
