Children’s books about donor conception – Telling kids about the donor

Telling your child about the flowers and the bees may be difficult enough. If you have a child or children conceived with the help of a donor, you must also think about how to tell them about the donor on top of that  

We think that children’s books about donor conception provide great help to tell the story for your child from the beginning. Luckily more and more authors publish great children’s books about donor conception and different family forms. 

Get inspiration from this list of 6 great children’s books that help you to talk to your child about donor conception. The list includes books about sperm donation, but many of the publications can also be found in other variations that focus on egg donor conception, surrogacy, solo mums, two mothers etc.  

HAPPY TOGETHER, A SPERM DONATION STORY 

Julie Marie

OUR STORY, HOW WE BECAME A FAMILY

An illustrated children’s book about different family forms. The book can be found in no less than 44 variations from two mum and sperm donor families to surrogacy in two dad families with twins. You can easily find a book that fits your family.

WHAT MAKES A BABY 

Cory Silverberg 

A children’s book for all kinds of family constellations. It explains the process from conception to birth with colourful illustrations. The great thing about this book is, that there is no focus on gender or body parts, so you can tell the story the way it fits your family form.  

YOU ARE MY WISH COME TRUE 

Marianne Richmond 

This lovely story with cute illustrations of a mum bear and a child bear is actually not made for donor children specifically. We still recommend the book because it focuses on a mummy’s special wish for a child. It can make a great starting point to tell your child more about his or her conception.

THE PEA THAT WAS ME: A SPERM DONATION STORY 

Kimberly Kluger-Bell  

A basic and nice story introducing the flowers and the bees and the kind help from a donor. The book is focused on two mums but is also published in other variations.
