Advice Please!

I have an almost 4 year old stepson and I wanted to get him a book. Like one of those "I'm gonna be a big brother" books. But I didn't know if they had any that we're more appropriate for him that aren't like "mommy's having a baby" because he doesn't call me mommy and we don't want to confuse him. Any good books you can reccomend? TIA :)

  • You could try to just sit down and talk to him. Much better and personalized approach. But then, I never dreamed of telling my kids any news like that with a book...

  • Check you local book stores, we have a huge book store called barns and noble and they have all kinds of books like step monny and step daddy! May be a little pricey but they have a good selection

  • I found these books when I looked online. I don't know about them from experience so you probably want to check their content and such, but i thought it might help.

    I didn't give my step kids any books when I had my baby, but I just made a big deal about being a big brother or sister. Also, if you can't find books that don't have mommy in them. just explain that you will be the baby's mommy.

    i would also try going to the library and asking a librarian for help looking for some.
