You Were Once the Size of a Plum Hardcover Children's Book


Did you know that you were once as small as a crumb, and then the same size as a plum? You were teeny, teeny tiny, but clever you - you grew, and grew and grew!

You Were Once The Size of a Plum compares a babies size though different stages of pregnancy to a range of fruits and vegetables. This book provides a great platform for parents and carers to discuss each child's own unique birth journey, and for children to gain a greater understanding of the process.

Age Recommendation:

You Were Once the Size of a Plum is a great book to read to children from approx. 2 years old. As the children progress and are able to read to themselves, they can continue to soak up the positive statements that this book brings.

In the home and learning environments, the messages from You Were Once the Size of a Plum can be used as a springboard into important conversations with children from a young age. As the children move into the pre-teen years, the level of conversation and learning will continue to grow. 

A note from the author:  

When we stop and think about how tiny our little ones once were it's impossible to ignore the fact that each and every new life is a miracle, starting out so small and rapidly growing into who they are today. It's easy to forget all of these little stages, so let's ensure that our children are aware of how much they have already achieved. Knowing how much they mean to us and how valuable they are is a great step in helping our children establish a healthy view towards themselves. We want our children to be confident, resilient and proud of who they are, and our words are a perfect and powerful way to help them grow in these areas. Your child was created for a purpose, your child is destined for greatness and your child is beyond wonderful, we know that, YOU know that, and together, we can make sure that your child absolutely knows that too!

This book would make a fantastic gift for a child with a baby sibling on the way. It not only reminds them how wonderful and loved they are but explains to them how their baby brother or sister is growing in a simple yet beautiful way.
