Does such a book exist??

I have a DD who is almost 5 who has been very curious lately about where babies come from. My husband and I had agreed prior to having children that we would do our best to be open and honest with them in regards to sex. Thus far, our answers to her questions have been a little bit vague. Ex, "How does a baby get in your tummy?" "Well, when God sees a man and a woman who love each other very much and have promised to spend forever together, he takes that special love and forms it into a baby and puts it in the mommy's tummy. YOU are that very special love."
The thing is, as I'd like to start talking a LITTLE more about the "hows" I know that she will get involved in the "whys" as well...
Is there a book out there, somewhere, that any of you know of, that discusses sex but also incorporates a faith perspective? Or am I going to have to kind of meld our beliefs with whatever basic book or info we get for her? (A lot of my friends have suggested "Where Did I Come From" by Peter Mayle. But I'm not a big fan, as it describes sex more in-depth than she needs to know... talks about how things "tickle" etc.)
I guess I just figured it might be easier if such a book existed so that I'm explaining it right--if that makes sense.
