Book about how babies are born for 6 year old


Hi can anyone recommend a good book which explains how babies are made/born for a 6 year old. I don't mind any actual facts but do want it to be pitched at the right age. (I am in the UK)

Thanks in advance !

I'm planning to buy "it's not the stork!" for ages 4-8 and if I like it but my daughter has more complex questions, I'll follow up with "it's so amazing!" for ages 6-9.

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 !!

books are great but i also like just straight talk and asking THEM questions. i feel like we see alot of fantasy in books so sometimes my kid gets confused. i have told her that babies are made when a sperm and an egg get together and that that is normally done when a mans penis goes into a womans vagina. and she knows that babies come out of the vagina. and then i ask her about it occasionally to see what she remembers. so far she hasnt had any real questions about it. when i preempt it, i avid her asking me in line at the grocery store ahahaha
