We love WHAT MAKES A BABY, by Cory SilverbergWe love WHAT MAKES A BABY, by Cory Silverberg
No genders are attached to the bodies. The author talks about some bodies having sperm and some bodies having eggs, and how people who want to make a baby need an egg and sperm. The pictures are gender neutral, mostly, and totally inclusive.
Works even for our very queer Pomo story (adopted embryos from another queer couple, my DP is genderqueer)

Thank you so much! Even just from the cover, I'm relieved to not see a pink bow on the egg's head!

You'll love it--my dad is a biologist and was totally skeptical, but it really does tell the basics in a totally non-gendered way. It's one of my 1 1/2 year old's current favorites.
