Product Description Violet and Mommy discuss the way Violet was created using the help of a sperm donor, through the metaphor of mixing paints like red and blue to make purple. As the mother of a child conceived via sperm donor, I found that there weren't simple children's books to explain our unique family story the way there were for adoption and other alternative family creation methods. This story is the honest and simple telling that I've used with my own children and I hope helps your family share and learn too.
The Pea That Was Me: A Sperm Donation Story is a charming and light-hearted picture book which answers (in very simple terms) the question of "where did I come from?"

This version of The Pea series refers to a "mommy and daddy." This unique book is a great way to introduce young children ages 3 and up to the fact that their parents...
