This book introduces a child to the idea of a new baby. It's written roughly for a pre-school aged child (ie 4-5 years old), but would probably work with an older child too.

I love how this story is told through the eyes of the two toddlers. It is all about how they cope / see their mums pregnancy and the arrival of their new sibling.
I think the author gets it spot on and I can see toddlers thinking the way they are portrayed in the book.
