“Perfect for small children”
I bought this book three years ago when pregnant with my youngest. My other children were 3 and 1 at the time, and they both found it fascinating. Since then, I lent the book out to several people and have no idea where it ended up! I'm expecting another child now, and will be buying this book again for my kids who are now 6, 4 and 2. It is age-appropriate and gave me a jumping off point for how to explain sex and babies to small children in a way that they could understand. I can't recommend this book enough!

Press reviews

“This book is a useful resource for parents and teachers to help them in answering young children’s questions about how babies are made in a simple, engaging way. The lively language and entertaining lift-the-flap format take you on a journey to discover how a baby forms inside its mother, and the attractive illustrations show the baby changing as it grows...and grows...and grows!”
