"I try and be open with all the kids. If a child asks you a question, I feel like you owe it to them to give an honest answer."

She continued: "You can hide the truth without lying if you really need to. It's a difficult balance, but if they've been brave enough to ask you a question, try and be brave enough to give them an honest answer - where possible.

"My son Theo is only five, but he's already asked me how he got in my tummy. He doesn't need to know how babies are made so I answer with minimum information and he just says, 'Oh yeah, that's fine,'" she added with a laugh.

Asked about her husband's reaction to the book, Emily shared: "He's so proud because he knows what a dream of mine it is. He's so supportive - he's just great."
