Editorial Reviews

"With little to no picture books in the marketplace about egg donation, Ta-Da! will hold a special place for families. Many families are now created through egg donation, sperm donation and IVF and it’s important for families to have books that reflect their own stories. Ella Kay’s writing is simple and straightforward. She does not over explain the process and writes a story that is celebratory, exciting and full of love and gratitude."
