Any suggestions for good books to read to my 22 month old about his new baby brother who will be arriving in 3 months time?

Za Za's Baby Brother
Big Brother, Little Brother
Aw you've made me all nostalgic for when mine were little

This is the one I liked the best.
Waiting for baby
It seems to be hard to get now but maybe your local library would have it. It has no words so lets you just talk about what happens. Only thing is it doesn't show the mummy and baby coming home which I realised I needed to explain when DS1 thought I was going away for ever.

My daughter also loves 'There's a house inside my Mummy' - although she's still in denial about the whole sibling thing, so when I ask her 'where's my tummy house?' she shakes her head and points at the mummy in the book...
We also bought 'I'm a Big Sister' and 'Big Sister' from The Book Depository, but after reading them once or twice, they seem a bit 'situational' and we will probably read them to DD when the baby is really close & after it's here.
I think they both come in the 'brother' variety too.

Can I just say this thread made me shed a tear or 2 (pregnancy hormones). Can't wait to introduce DS to his little bro or sis. Now we just need to wait 35 more weeks!

"Mummy, Mummy, what's in your tummy?" for when pregnant
"I'm a big sister" for when the baby arrives

DD was given Za-Za's Baby Brother by SIL and she loves it. She asks to read Za-Za all the time. Might check out There's a House Inside My Mummy as well
