Ds is 19 months and we are expecting a new baby (girl) in 3 months.
I'm looking for a few books to get him used to the idea.
All recommendations welcome but he does like highly illustrated books, eg Dogger, Maurice Sendak, Barefoot books, etc. Not so keen on bolder, less subtle, illustrations like Maisy, Miffy etc. Also not so keen on lots of words, rhymes etc. But I will be driven mad by another single word-single picture book, so something that I can read 5 million times also helpful.
We are currently reading "What Shall We Do With The Boo Hoo Baby?" by Cressida Cowell and Ingrid Godon. Ds absolutely loves it, I can't recommend it highly enough!
We also have "There's a House in my Mummy" but it doesnt hold the same appeal.
We got 2 yesterday that are going down pretty well with our almost 3 year old. 'There's a house inside my mummy' - it does have a rhyming text though but the pics are great (a brother arrives in the end) We also got a photo based story book 'My New Sister'.
Will be interested to see other recommendations.
