    My son checked this out of the library and I read the beginning

    My son checked this out of the library and I read the beginning chapters with my 6-year-old grandson. Perfect pitch for his age and sophistication. I'll absolutely be buying the book now because I know we'll want to go back to it several times as he gets a little older and has more questions.

    We realized it was past time when he mentioned that his baby half-sister (divorced parents) hadn't grown her 'parts' yet and when he said that our dog was trying to 'lay eggs' when we saw him humping the pillow!

    I especially like the way it includes all kinds of families very matter-of-factly because my own children were adopted and very few 'where do babies come from' ever mentioned that.

    great book

    Wonderful book to help children understand about our bodies and questions they might have. Pictures aren't graphic but show enough so a child understands. I highly recommend this book.

    Exactly what we needed

    We are expecting our 3rd baby and wanted a book that could help us with explanations for our 7 year old daughter and 10 year old son. Our 7 year old didn't want us to stop reading it to her. It prompted excellent discussions, during which my husband and I could articulate our family's specific values. My 10 year old preferred to take the book into his room where he read it in private. I followed up with some questions over the next few days to make sure he read and understood it. I've always talked to my kids about their private parts, using the correct anatomical names, and about appropriate touch, but I regret not talking to my 10 year old about intercourse and how a baby is made sooner. Now I am shopping for the books that the same authors wrote for older children. I'm grateful for the guidance.
