Anyone have a good recommendation for books to introduce a 3yo to the topic of a new sibling on the way?  Thanks!!

We had this one http://www.amazon.com/My-New-Baby-Series/dp/0859539741/ref=sr_1_13?ie=UTF8&qid=1349852575&sr=8-13&keywords=waiting+for+baby and another by the same author I think called waiting for baby.

 

They are both picture books so we were able to make up a story to fit our circumstances. In the first the child goes shopping for baby things, go to a scan and so on. Then a the end to see mum and new baby in hospital. The second one is life at home with the new baby. We liked the dad cooking dinner while mum was breastfeeding, definately happened a  lot here.

Not a book, but a super touching kid song by Frances England about an only getting a new sibling is Family Tree. I definitely recommend it.

 

Let's see, we like:
