One of the few good donor origin stories28 September 2016 - Published on Amazon.com
There are far too few choices out there when it comes to origin stories for single mom's by choice and their donor-conceived children - but this is one of the best. It is a lovely story about Natalie's quest to find her treasure and how, once she realizes she really longs for a child, she gets help from a doctor and a kind donor and ultimately has her baby. Unlike some other problematic books, there is no mention of the heroine being sad/missing a man in her life. Also - my edition at least does not mention 'father' as some reviews said - but uses the term 'donor'. The 'technical' details of conception are not very technical and while a bit silly they are also kind of funny and I can live with it, even if I may have to evolve the description of conception as my daughter gets older. (the egg rejects the first sperm and it takes months to find an especially cute and determined sperm that the egg likes - described with illustrations reminiscent of courtship. My daughter now says that to make a baby, you have to have an egg and a sperm and then they dance and become a baby.). All in all - the best book I've found on this topic and my daughter loves it.

PRACTICE KOREAN while you learn how doctors knock up SMCs8 November 2017 - Published on Amazon.com
This book contains 12 pages of the Hangeul Bootcamp Korean language study workbook, right in the middle of the page spread where would-be SMC Natalie visits the doctor...who tells her he's ready to solve her problem with a bunch of extra sperms. It's a pretty wordy story that needed a much stronger children's editor, and it obviously could have used a more attentive publisher/print QCer. But it is one of the very few books out there explaining SMC families to kids, so if you're desperate and you don't mind the idea of a doctor featured as the key co-contributor to Natalie's process (not, say, a carefully-chosen, kind, generous DONOR), then this is slightly better than nothing.

Beautifully illustrated book about single a women using sperm donors18 June 2015 - Published on Amazon.com
I will be using this book to explain to my son about how our family came to be. The illustrations are very well-done and professional-looking.. Many books outside the mainstream have artwork that isn't nice to look at. This book is lovely to look at. I purchased this in November 2014. In our edition there is no mention of "father". In fact there is no mention of a "donor" either, the book simply talks about the mother's egg and sperm. This is a gently way to introduce any child to how they began to grow in their mother's womb and what they looked like then. Very charming story. It was translated from Hebrew, so there are a few "choppy" bits to the story. But those can be fixed by you, the reader.

The story starts out sweet enough - a woman is looking for something special ...9 July 2015 - Published on Amazon.com
The story starts out sweet enough - a woman is looking for something special to fill her heart. When the story turns technical (which I appreciate), it gets weird. Several pages go on about how "just the right sperm" is needed and the woman had to try multiple times to find the right one. That's not always the case and could be very confusing for a young child, not to mention totally unnecessary to convey the intended message. Additionally, my copy had a printing defect; I'm sure it was a one-off, but one of the center pages is misaligned and has an exposed white binding edge. I was really hopeful about this book, but found it all around disappointing.

One of the only books of its kind9 August 2012 - Published on Amazon.com
This is one of the few books I could find that talks about the journey of a SINGLE FEMALE using donor sperm. Most of the other books relate to couples. It's a beautiful book - lovely illustrations and simple, touching words.
