    Default Egg Donor Books - For Children

    Hi all,

    We have just had a little girl conceived with a donor egg (from my angel of a sister). I am looking for a children's book I can read to her explaining where she came from and how she came into our lives.

    Can anyone recommend a good book which explains it in a way she will understand and accept it from a young age?

    TIA!!

    Hi KtKing!
    Congrats on the birth of your little girl! Hope all went beautifully with your birth?

    There is a good book on egg donation called 'Sometimes it Takes Three to Make a Baby' which I intend to order for my DD. Details here: http://www.access.org.au/?p=292

    Hi, congratulations!!!!!

    We have ED twins and they have this book that I love!
    It's called Mommy, Was Your Tummy Big

    It explains the process in a way that children can understand and then as they get older and understand more they can ask more questions.

    Thanks everyone.

    Alice, I have heard of that book and read great reviews online. I may just have to get it :-)

    It's such a hard thing to explain to a child. My little girl is only 10 weeks but I really haven't worked out how to explain this to her in the future.

    It is a big thing to explain to kids! That's part of the reason we love the 'Mummy, was your tummy big' book. It introduces the concept of the gift of a special egg to a mum and dad elephant who really want to have baby elephant.
    We have decided that if we share this story with our children that when they get a little older and inquisitive it will be a good starting point for them to ask more questions about egg donation and from there their understanding can develop into a more scientific understanding as teens.

    For us the most important thing is to never keep it a secret from our children that they are conceived through DE. Outside of our little family it's nobody else's business!
