Books are a great way of educating your child about babies. You can talk through the issues raised, being sure to focus on what he was like when he was a newborn and how the new baby might be similar. A gentle introduction into what to expect without frightening your child is probably foremost on your mind. Here are a selection of our favourite books for children, who will soon be welcoming a brand new little brother or sister into the world!
