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.

And we level up on our olfactory neuroscience with University of Pennsylvania Professor Jay Gottfried.
