You feel deep gratitude for your egg donor and the gift she has given your family. Whether you want a fun and age-appropriate way to share with your child how they came to be through egg donation, or you’d like to share about egg donation with other children in your life, reading children’s books about egg donation is a great way to do so.

As assisted reproductive technology becomes increasingly prevalent, we are seeing more resources come available. Egg donation is being shown in mainstream media and is being talked about more openly than ever before. When researching this post, I was pleasantly surprised by just how many books have been published for children about egg donation.

Do you want to share informative stories about egg donation with your child or the children in your life?
