PART I "Sweet Lavender". Sense the purity of your own mind, child Such an innocence not yet caught by judging eyes Don't touch me, little seed, 'cause I'll betray you If you follow me, you'll never see. Trough a crack in the wall You watch the world nearly paralized By this glimpse of tomorrow And a glimpse is all you'll get Wherever you fly cause you'll go blind The moment you reach down. On your way you'll start wonder Where the ocean meets the sand On your way you'll feel that heaven's Slipping slow through your hand.

Eventhough I have to pay for the return shipment, i am sending this back. May be this book was "written out of love", as it states, but by someone who should never write books. (Thank you for trying though!) This clumsy attempt at writing a children's book is even more aggravated by the fact that the author is trying really hard to naturally introduce the subject of donor conception into it. None of it works. The book is pretty standard and uninteresting (but still OK) until it gets to the topic of donor conception, when the tone suddenly becomes somewhat apologetic and the text becomes very wordy, it suddenly uses clumsy language and goes into way much detail to explain everything, including the difference between daddies and fathers. This part clearly stands out in the book, as if someone just added a lengthy blurb about donor conception into a book about lions. It leaves the reader (or at least me) with a feeling that the two-person family while obviously inferior to the standard families is still OK for this particular lioness and her cub. This is not the feeling i want my child to have about our family. And what a terrible name for a book!

I had my much longed for son thanks to a sperm donor and although he isn't asking questions yet I want him to have an introduction to the concept of a donor from early on. I thank the author for her efforts but I ended up getting rid of the book for two reasons that really bugged me.

The first and most important was how the story talked about the cub having a "Father" but no Daddy. Sorry, but a sperm donor is not a Father - when he gave his donation there was no emotional or physical relationship with the mother. Since Father and Daddy are interchangeable labels I felt this was very confusing and misleading for children. For women I know that have used egg donors this would mean that the egg donor was the "Mother" and the woman who had been pregnant, given birth, and raised the child was a "Mommy" but yet there was another woman out there given the important title of "Mother." Seems to me that a woman who takes an 8 cell fertilized egg through 9+ months of pregnancy, gives birth, and then takes care of that baby from day one has earned all the Mom, Mommy, Mother titles!

The second is this book was so wordy!! It had long paragraphs on most pages - come on, what kid in the picture book age range has that kind of patience. It could have been simplified.

Again, I applaud the author for her intention and hard work getting this done, but I will continue my search for a book to explain my son's origins.

I bought this for a dear friend who had a baby by donor conception. This is a clunky book, but I think the very fact that you have a book that describes helpful lions who gave you their sperm is a good, normalizing thing. It's such a complex topic, but I wanted her to be able to introduce it to her child before the child was old enough to understand it fully, so by the time he does understand it, he will have known it all along. This is not a perfect book, but it's a start. The drawings are charming, the text is overwritten, but there is so little out there (there are many, many more adoption books for children, but hardly any donor conception books) that it will do. If anyone reading this review knows of other books that deal with this very specific issue, I'd be delighted to hear about them!

Edited to add that I also found and bought Just The Baby For Me via Amazon and think Just The Baby for Me suited my needs better - it's simpler and more heartwarming/charming than this book.

I bought this even though I knew it would be limited based on other reviewers' concerns. When I read it to my 15-month-old son, I change the words quite a lot (I substitute "genetic donor" for "father," and I shorten the story considerably). Once he's old enough to read the words himself, we may have a conversation about why this book says "father" when we don't use that word to describe our donor.

That said, it is a nice description about the role of the donor, as someone who must be nice and generous, but who is not a part of the family. And it's nice to use animals, to show that there are all kinds of different families, and also to better hold the interest of a very young child.

If there were dozens of books on this topic available, I'd be more selective. But from what I can tell there are just a few. (I also have "Just the Baby for Me," which has its own issues.) At this point my child is too young to really have a conversation about the book or the concept, so I can't speak to how he perceives it.

After reading some of the so-so reviews I was hesitant to purchase this book. However, since there are so few books on this topic, I did anyway. I am so glad I did! I really like this book as does my son, who just turned 3. Yes, the book is a bit wordy, but it tells a great story. I love that it goes into details about all the many different kinds of families there are, and then goes into detail about donor insemination. It gives all the details I would want my son to know, including how to handle questions from other children, and how I handle questions from adults.

I wasn't sure about the use of "father" as some of the other reviewers have mentioned, but after doing some research on the topic, I believe it is indeed appropriate terminology to use. There is also a rationale for its use as an afterword to the book.

I like the drawings,and love the context. Of course I live in Africa so the whole animal scenario really appeals.

I also have the other book "Just the Baby for me" and like it much less than this one. It doesn't hold my son's attention nearly as much either.

Overall I really recommend this book, unless you have a problem with the terminology "father". But as I said, the research seems to support the use of this word in this situation.
