Baking a Baby Book
Baking a Baby - Helping modern-day parents answer the question "Where did I come from?"
"Baking a Baby" is a child-friendly resource design to support your child's understanding of conception, assisted reproduction, donor use, surrogacy, and adoption.
Lauren Knight from Clear Knight Publishing is a self-published Australian author whose mission is to promote diversity through education and encourage acceptance to support the well-being of children around the world.
This book was designed as a conversation starter to help explain that there is no one way to make a family. It reinforces the message that it doesn't matter who the ingredients come from or how the baby is made; it's those who love and care for you that count.
Baking a Baby is the perfect introduction to the ingredients needed for making a baby – Eggs, Sperm, and a Tummy for the baby to grow.
Baking a Baby is an engaging tool to assist parents who want to introduce concepts such as donors, surrogates, assisted reproduction, and adoption to their children through simple and immersive illustrations. Baking a Baby normalises diversity, with characters of different sexuality, race, and appearance.
Research shows the earlier you begin telling a child the story of how they were conceived, the more straightforward and stress-free it is for you and your child.
This book is an excellent conversation starter and is intended to be read with children and their guardians.
Activity to complete about where the ingredients came from to 'bake' them, and what they love to do with their family.
