There are a few but was it same sex ones or any inparticular you wanted the ones ive seen are about "mommy and daddy couldnt have children" they do explain the process but its all about a man and a women.

    HI Steph, looking for something more lgbt oriented.explained.... maybe thats another gap in the market? Or maybe I just take the plunge and we explain when our child is old enough with some aids to explain the process in age appropriate terms..?

    well lets see

    Have you been to the book stop in Blooomsbury 'Gay is the Word' they have a children's section for stories with 2 mummies/daddies etc
    http://freespace.virgin.net/gays.theword/video.htm

    Also if you contact Olivia m or DCN they may develop a DS booklet, there is not for my situation a single woman using DE's and a gay man who has a male partner, so one mummy and 2 daddies (hopefully one day)

    Hi just wanted to add o your list of books. my yopungest girl as been going through a bit of a hard time, as her Dad my exs doesnt approve of mine and my partners relationship. her school haf ordered some books for her to read (she is five nearly 6) they sent them home for me to read first before going letting her look at them. so far they have got her 'king and king' I thought it was great very funny. and 'in my mothers house' wounderful book bit sad at the end, but also covers the fact that not everyone approves of gay relationships.

    I went into gay's the Word yesterday whilst having a little potter around London. Great shop with really friendly staff :-) I literally said to DP "can you see children's books?" and a member of staff showed us straight away.

    Had a little read of a few. Read "If I had 1000 mummies" which I thought was adorable. I also enjoyed I Am A Rainbow by Dolly Parton :-) Although not directly related to children of gay and lesbian parents, it had some great lessons in it like thinking of people's feelings and such.

    If you're around London definitely nip down to the shop :-)
