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

probably not. There is a book called "breasts" and it is in the same series as "everybody poops" and it's this cute funny informative book until it gets to the weaning page.

"By the time a baby is one year old it is all done with nursing. The baby eats real people food and that is how the baby says goodbye to nursing. Of course some babies don't nurse at all and they are just as healthy as the ones who do."

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.
