Friends are expecting their second child, and aren't sure how to break it to their DS, they're thinking a book might help. She's not a MNetter, but asked if I could post on here for recs. He'll turn 2 shortly before her due date, do any of you wonderful people know of a book about getting a little brother/sister aimed at this age group? Any other tips would be welcome
Another recommendation for There's a House Inside My Mummy. DS still loves that book even though DD is nearly 4 weeks old. The downside is it's a bit gender specific (refers to new baby as 'he'. We knew we were having a girl so adapted it). Also contains the alarming line 'The door is rather tight' referring to the, ahem, 'door' to the house inside mummy.
We also got Waiting for Baby and My New Baby which are part of the same series but 2 yo DS found them a bit dull.
Another vote for topsy and tim and the new baby - also good as it features the mum breastfeeding - very right on! ZaZa's baby brother is also nice, by the same author who wrote the 'maisy mouse' books http://www.amazon.co.uk/Za-Zas-Baby-Brother-Lucy-Cousins/dp/0763603376
