You (and SkylerSquirrel) might be interested in the following threads:
poly books and stories (also films) for children (This one for when your children are a bit older.)
Children and Polyamory
And -for a whole list to work through: Threads Tagged with children

And two that newbies in general might find useful:
"Stop me if you've heard this one" - clichés we've heard from non-polys
Tags (Independently of this link, to get here you click on "search" in the blue bar at the head of your page, then on "tag search".)
