Are there any picture books aimed at the child's level about weaning?

Haven't read it myself, but know it exists:
"Maggie's Weaning" by Mary Joan Deutschbein. A quote from the LLL website at the link above: "This children’s book is a delightful, child’s-eye view of the nursing experience. As Maggie remembers the times she once spent at her mother’s breast, she talks about the joys and the challenges of slowly leaving breastfeeding behind."

I have Maggie's Weaning and read it to my DS when he was nursing. It's cute but I changed many of the words to fit our vocabulary, etc. Making one yourself is a great idea.
