I think that you tell him that you have some very exciting news. that he is going to be a big brother in ____. You tell him how excited you are that he is going to be a big brother how happy you are that you will have him there to help you. As you progress further into the pregnancy he can do things like help you pick a theme for the room. Help narrow down names. Make it an exciting time for both of you. Make sure he still gets lot's of love and attention. My favorite thing that I was ever told to tell my son was that when a mom's tummy grows her heart grows to so that there is enough room for her to love all of her children lot's and lot's. I am sure you can find a lot of age appropriate boks at the library a well. I know there is a what to expect when mommy is expecting book that is supposed to be good.
