Egg Donor Books for Kids


Many egg donors feel great pride with their decision, and will ultimately choose to share their choices with their children. Whether you have children at the time of your donation, or plan to tell your future children of your donation, finding a way to explain something so scientific to such a young mind can feel challenging.

The good news is that, as assisted reproduction grows in popularity, more and more authors are penning books for children that explore the topics of egg donation in an age appropriate way. Many of these titles invite conversation and can open the door to discussion with slightly older kids. Here’s a look at a few of our favorite titles:

  • Hope & Will Have A Baby: The Gift of Egg Donation” by Irene Celcer
  • (Irene Celcer has a series addressing various topics, all called “Hope & Will Have a Baby:” but with subtitles such as “The Gift of Sperm Donation,” and “The Gift of Surrogacy.”)
  • “A Tiny Itsy Bitsy Gift of Life, An Egg Donor Story for Boys” by Carmen Martinez Jover
  • “One Little Egg” by Kimberly F. DeMeo
  • “The Pea That Was Me” An Egg-Donation Story” by Kimberly Kluger-Bell
  • “A Very Special Lady: A story about IVF, an egg donor and a little girl” by Nell Carswell
