Explaining to children where they come from is particularly difficult for parents. Personally, I struggle with age-appropriate language and determining how much to tell.
This book, with its bright, vivid, and full-page illustrations is a good start.
Although I felt that many of the words (e.g. picturesque, genesis, palpated, amniotic) were too difficult for a child to understand, the overall approach to explaining how a baby is conceived is good.
I hope the author will write a sequel explaining why cats and dogs have many offspring at at time, whereas humans don’t. My child is looking for an answer to that!
(I received a review copy from Book Sirens in exchange for an honest review.)
Explaining a child’s beginning, is sometimes difficult and considered taboo. This book is an honest, eye opening, and humorous, mother’s attempt to satisfy her daughter’s curiosity, of where babies come from?
