Honesty: The best answer for this type of question is always the honest correct one. The language should be tailored for the age of the child, but tell the facts and the truth.This prevents later problems for your child.

There are many books written for children to read with you about where babies come from-- there is usually a suggestion about what age child the book is appropriate for.
