I'm expecting our second DC, DS is 3.5 years old. He loves books and has good concentration, can followed stories well. I have looked on amazon for books about the arrival of a new baby, but most of them seem t be targeted at toddlers.
Can anyone recommend anything good for a slightly older child, please?

I'm not sure if you are looking for something more than these ideas but my two boys still love reading them now, aged 6 and 3.

Share by Anthea Simmons (the last sentance is something like 'shall we share our mummy...yes we do' at which point ds1 used to shout out 'no i wont...' )

The Baby by India Knight, which has some toilet humour in which the boys find absolutely hilarious.

'There's a House Inside My Mummy' is the one I used for ds when I was pregnant with dd (he was 3y 10m when she was born). He really liked it as it captures the imagination, explains about Mummy being tired as well as little sibling coming along, and it is written in rhyme as well as having nice pictures. he made me read it to him again the other day as his bedtime story! Don't get any ideas my son.... wink

Thank you so much for your responses. I will get on amazon straight away!

We too love 'Share' (DC2 due in 5 weeks).

DD also loves 'Topsy and Tim and the New Baby' and 'Max and Millie and the New Baby'.
