Can anyone recommend a picture Book to prepare toddler for baby brother or sister?

My son will be 19months when our next one will come along. He is intrigued about my big tummy and he will point to it when i ask him "where is your baby sister?" He pats it and kisses it but i want to find a book that shows pictures of a pregnant mummy and then the results afterwards. I am pretty sure he hasn't connected the two and probably still too young to with a book. But it's an opportunity. Does anyone know a good book?

We got my daughter The Berenstain Bears' New Baby. He might be too young for it, but it's a story about the older brother outgrowing his bed and he and Papa Bear go build him a new bed just in time for his baby sister to have his old bed. It shows a a time progression of him sitting on Mama's lap and there being less and less space for him to sit. It's cute and if nothing else it could be a keepsake for him for when he gets older.
