When to tell the children.

Hi, I've asked for help before. My sister has been reading a lot of books, in one of them it said to explain to siblings(about DS) right away. Being Kayle (1 month old) will be with me 9 hours out of the day in a few short weeks, he will be very close to his cousins. My sister wants to tell my son 6 (first grade) and my Daughter 4 about DS and Kayle. Here's my question: What do you tell them? ( if you have a script that'd be perfect..) Is my 4 year old ready? how about my 2 year old? Any advice ( please be specific) is very appreciated.
Heather
