For many parents, finding some children's books about how babies are made, can make explaining a tricky subject a lot easier!
Over the years, a lot of children's books about how babies are made have been written and published. Some talk about sexual intercourse and some don't. Some are good and some are 'not so good'.
This blgpost will show you some of my favourite books that talk about baby-making in a number of different ways. Like good ol fashioned sexual intercourse or some of the alternative ways (like IVF). You will even find books that manage to explain how a baby is made without even mentioning sex!

This book is a fun read on how babies are made with a simple description of sexual intercourse. If this is your first time of talking about sex with your child, this is probably a nice simple book to start with - plus it is a fun read!
This book is ideal for younger children between the ages of 5 - 7.
This book is for kids who are curious about what sexual intercourse is and are ready to learn that 'having sex' is more than just doing things with our private parts. It talks about all the other things that go with sex (healthy relationships, consent, feelings, bodies).
This book is ideal for children between the ages of 8 - 12.
This beautifully illustrated book is a great resource for parents to use, when having to explain how their IVF child was made. Kids become very curious about how babies are made, and when they aren't made the 'ol fashioned' way, it is up to parents to find the right way to explain it. This book does the job beautifully, but what I really like is how special it makes it all sound - it talks about all the love and heartache that goes into a much wanted IVF baby.
It is ideal for children aged between 4-8 years of age.
This book provides all the details of how babies are made. It provides a pretty good description of sexual intercourse - not as descriptive as in "Where Did I Come From', but more descriptive than any other books that are available.
This book is ideal for children between the ages of 7 - 10.
This book looks at pregnancy, how a baby develops and is born. So if you have a kid that is really interested in pregnant bellies and what's happening inside, then this is the book to grab. Also, it does not talk about sexual intercourse. It is ideal for younger children between the ages of 3 - 6 years of age.
This book covers a range of different topics but has a nice and simple age-appropriate description of how to start a baby. It would be a good book to start with if you want a book that covers more than one topic.
This book is ideal for children between the ages of 6 - 9.
This book looks at how babies are made, pregnancy, and birth. If your child wasn't conceived through 'penis in vagina' sexual intercourse, this book will allow you to talk about the way that your child was conceived - sperm and/or egg donation, IVF, adoption, surrogacy, etc. This book is ideal for younger children between the ages of 4 - 7.
These are some of the many children's books about how babies are made, that have been written. As I find more, I will add them to this list. They are all really good books that they can read to find reliable and accurate information about love, sex and relationships.
