Mommy's Having a Watermelon
By Kim and Danny Adlerman
Illustrated by Megan Halsey
Young Zoe Rind accidentally spits a watermelon seed into her mother’s glass, and her mother then swallows it. Now, Zoe’s mother says that a “seed” is growing inside her, and Zoe can’t figure out why her family is so excited. A watermelon growing inside Mommy’s belly? As her mother’s stomach swells bigger and bigger, Zoe begins to wonder what will happen to the watermelon after it is born—remaining confused right through the trip to the hospital on the night of the delivery.
