I don’t know of any books specifically, but what we did when I found out I was pregnant was go out and each of us bought a book that we liked as a child.  He bought Where the Wild Things Are and has read it to her a few times.  I bought Le Petit Prince and read it to her at bedtime often 🙂

@swanks4tw:  My FSIL has for her son…

Daddy Hugs (Classic Board Books) by Katz, Karen   and

My Daddy and Me by Tina Macnaughton.

I have also heard very mixed reviews about Daddies Do It Different by Alan Lawerence, FI’s cousin found it horribley offensive and thought it did not portray men in a good light – he really thought this book would tell his daughter “Daddy is an idiot” but others find it funny and gave it overall good reviews…

Edited my post above, I didnt read your post well enough and thought you were looking for pregnancy books geared towards dads. Oops.

How about buying him a book called “Nightime stories”  I think that’s what it’s called. A book that he can read nightime stories to the child at bedtime.  It might even be called bedtime stories.  my XDH never really read “soon to be daddy” books, eventhough he was excited to be a dad and all.
