Cleverly revealing the basics of reproduction in an age-appropriate way, award-winning Sophie Blackall has created a beautiful picture book full of playful details to amuse and engage readers.
Sooner or later, every child will ask, Where do babies come from? Answering this question has never been this easy or entertaining! Join a curious little boy who asks everyone from his babysitter to the mailman, getting all sorts of funny answers along the way, before his parents gently set him straight.
This book answers the age-old question “Where do babies come from?” in a way that is anatomically correct without being too explicit, after going through several iterations of other answers a child might be given such as from a baby tree, from an egg, from a hospital and from the stork. I’d recommend parents browse through this book before reading it with their kiddos to make sure this is how you’d like to present the information.
