Growing Bean Book Reviews

I thought it was going to be a story based on another mums experiences but was pleasantly surprised that it was a book for mum to read to her unborn baby and baby after birth. Also there is a section to fill out for the baby. It’s a very good idea and can’t wait to fill it out once baby Maliha is born. And to also read it to her after she is born. The design of the cover can actually make it feel like it is the a story book to read and nothing more. It’s nice and simple but it can fool you into thinking that the book isn’t for personalizing, but overall it is a nice and simple cover. For me personally this did encourage early bonding during pregnancy.  It does really help grow the bond between unborn baby and mother because it also gives you activities and thinking time and hopes and dreams. I feel that it opens up the imagination of the mother to be and makes you want to plan ahead in a very positive manner. I have been doing reading and speaking to my bump from very early on as I also believe it encourages babies movements in the womb and creates a healthy happy baby. As baby is in the womb developing I definitely believe they hear and feel what we do and anything educational for them can teach and engage the baby pre-birth to develop mentally and physically. I really did enjoy reading this book and I plan to enjoy after Maliha is born. I was very surprised about the contents and also how easy and simple it is and also can be passed on to your baby as a gift when they grow older and you can add your own stories and pictures in a very creative way. I had been feeling unwell and found it difficult to stay positive some of the time also trying not to worry about my baby at the same time, reading this book regularly especially around the 2nd/3rd trimester really helped to soothe those worries and turn them to positivity instead. The story part of the book (the beginning) is based on every part of pregnancy right up until birth. Reading this book step by step definitely helps you to remember your pregnancy milestones and what you’ve already passed through and what’s yet to come in a mild enjoyable and subtle manner. Being able to document the birth details of my pregnancy is my favourite part of the book and was pleasantly surprised by the book. I can pass this on to baby when she is older and it would involve my child to her life pre-birth and give her some information on her history which I feel would be a great piece of memorabilia for the whole family in fact. Sometimes I was reading the book every night and now every now and then but plan to make full use of the book once baby is born. The illustrations were OK due to the fact I feel that the author/illustrator kept it simple as the main part of the book was purposely for the story and the personalization of the reader. I really liked the fact that it has activities for the mother to complete during pregnancy and the fact you can personalize the book. I believe this would be a nice baby shower gift for any mum to be and any mum would appreciate receiving this book as a gift. This is good value because before reading and exploring the book it can surprise you of the contents. I would consider buying this book as it will not be for one time use it will be re-read and written on and adapted many times over and over again. Creating memories and noting down memories and facts about your personal pregnancy and your baby. Photos can be added too. I would defiantly recommend this book as it is a positive resource to own to help bonding with your baby during and after pregnancy. I would give the book a 5 out of 5 purely genius and thoughtful every step of the book is designed to help mothers and also other family members bond with baby creating excitement and enjoyment. Simple design, easy to read, appropriate for each milestone,  positive experiences, great short read, educational, promoting bonding with bump, promoting positivity, well thought out, long lasting book which can be passed down to baby as a gift as they grow up, you can personalise, promoting dreams and wishes for unborn and growing child, helps positivity for the future of you and your child and overall a great bonding experience can be created through the book.

Came in a lovely package with a Personalised message from the author. Concept is really good, my other children have also taken an interest in reading it. The front cover made me interested in the book. Although I have already given birth 3 times before it doesn’t stop anxiety about being pregnant and everything that goes with it. This book really helped. I agree it is good to read to your growing bump and it also helps baby to bond and recognise voices. I did enjoy this book and found it very interesting. This book also helped with my anxiety. I was already familiar with pregnancy milestones but helped me to recognise the stages again. I thought the part to document birth details was a lovely touch. I’ve read it quite a few times. The illustrations were good. I like that it was informative but not too much that my children wouldn’t be able to read it too. I think this would make an ideal gift for a mum to be. I do agree this is good value. I would buy this book. I would recommend as it is a lovely keepsake. This book is informative and helps with pregnancy anxiety. Whilst also being a lovely keepsake. The book was packaged lovely with a personalised message. Lots of pictures and information with a lovely bit at the back for writing baby bits down that  you can look back on in years to come. Carrie Trimnell – Mum To Be

Exciting to have a look inside. Very short and sweet for first time mums to have a little read. Front cover is inviting and related to the story. This book has encouraged me to read the story even at an early stage of my pregnancy. I have enjoyed reading this book many times before going to bed. I  wouldn’t say helped me during my pregnancy but it has given me a nice story to read out loud to my baby during pregnancy. Personally I would not say it has helped me to remember major milestones during my pregnancy. I’ll be keeping the book to remember what I was reading to my unborn child. Myself and my partner have read the book once or twice a week. Illustrations were very relevant and not too much on one page. I really liked that it is like talking to your baby from the very beginning. I think it would be nice for first time parent maybe not a parent that’s been one before. I think it would be better priced if a little cheaper. Personally I would not buy this only due to the cost is a little high for a small book. I would recommend if they are willing to pay £10 for a book. I would rate this 4 as it’s a nice story to read, very inviting and relevant but the price is a little high. I’ve enjoyed reading this book to my unborn child and will continue to read it until they are born. It has made me feel more connected to my baby right from the start. Alicia Ramskill – Mum To Be
