It's not a book, but I watch birth videos on YouTube with my 4 year old (have done since she was 3) to talk about birth. She loves watching them and it's been very helpful for talking about what's happened (particularly as she'll likely be there as I'm planning a home birth, she was born at home too).
I didn't do a book just answered Ds's questions when he started asking them - when he was two. By the time he was three he understood the process and we'd gone from 'two seeds bump together' to sperm and egg, where they come from, how they get there. After that we watched this video along with my friend and her daughter who is the same age as my son, they both loved it and know that they can talk to each other or ask me or my friend anything and they will be given the answer.
Ds is about to turn 7 now and we both enjoy programmes relating to babies/genetics etc - he loved the BBC series 'the amazing making of me' and he was only 4 at the time.
Thank you I am will check all the suggestions out. I am just not sure how much detail to go into etc He was only 2 when I got pregnant with his brother and didn't really ask to many questions ...... This time round I think I am in for a lot of questions from the two of them !!
