There are some fantastic age appropriate books about where babies come from, that will help parents in explaining this important fact of life to their sweet and inncoent child.
The books listed here are books that talk about where babies come from WITHOUT mentioning sexual intercourse. So there is no mention of penises going into vaginas. Which means that they talk about how it happens in a more simple way.
If you're unsure about how to get started, then you will find more in this blogpost about how to explain where babies come from. Or watch this video that shows you how human reproduction happens naturally.
If you need more help, do go and have a look at my book, Let's Talk About Sex: How To Get Started And What To Say To Your Child About Sex, as it will help you to get started!
If you would like to talk about sexual intercourse, then you wll need to look at the booklist about how babies are made.
You will only find books in this list that are readily available at bookshops today.
You can find more books about different topics in the main list of Sex Education Books for Children.
And if you find this list a little overwhelming, you might want to look at the age-appropriate list of sex education books.
You’ll find more information about sex education in my Sex Education 101 page.
NOTE: Before passing any book to your child or reading the book with your child, you should read it yourself first. I might think it is a great book for a certain age child or that the information is valuable, but you may disagree. You need to choose books that reflect your values and the messages you want your child to receive.
These are some of the many age appropriate books about where babies come from that have been written. As I find more, I will add them to this list. They are all really good books that kids can read to find reliable and accurate information about love, sex and relationships. Plus they will help prepare you too!
If you have looked at these age appropriate books about where babies come from, you may also be interested in books on other topics too. You can find many of them listed in my sex education book review site.
