It Takes Love (and some other stuff) to Make a Baby is a book for kids in two-mom families born via donor insemination. Using bright illustrations and simple, concrete language, It Takes Love explains the basics of reproduction and introduces the concept of the donor. Both known donors and anonymous donation are addressed in a way that allows each family to tell its own unique story. Written by family doctor and writer LL Bird and illustrated by award-winning children’s artist, Patrick Girouard. For children 3+.
