Like other science and information books, ours are a gathering of the most accurate and detailed information available. The difference with our books, however, is that we have combined the facts with exciting photos and design.

Our objective when we began was to offer kids not only information on the sun, but a suntan as well. Now, we realize that the best place for a suntan is still outside, but on a cloudy day you might want to give our books a try.

Describes the development of a human baby from conception to birth, and briefly discusses genetic and environmental disorders.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Against the stunning backdrop of technologically innovative, large-scale photos, many from Lennart Nilsson's A Child Is Born , a straightforward text chronicles the development of human life, which ``begins with the fusion of two cells, the egg from the female and the sperm from the male.'' Reproduced on full spreads, the photographs--truly remarkable and finely detailed--document the formation of the embryo, its implantation in the uterus and a fetus's development; the text is overlaid in translucent insets. Taylor, a first-time author, then moves on to the three stages of birth and what happens during a baby's first moments. Although this book provides a sound explanation of an astonishing process, it should be noted that the final spreads are potentially confusing and unsettling to youngsters, who, after seeing photos of a healthy newborn, are presented again with images of a baby in utero, as the author offers a cursory discussion of how substances consumed by a pregnant woman can harm the fetus. Ages 7-up. (June)
School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-This photo essay on conception, fetal development, and birth draws heavily on the now familiar, striking, in-utero photography of Lennart Nilsson as seen in his A Child Is Born (Delacorte, 1990) and Sheila Kitzinger's Being Born (Putnam, 1986). Following a full-page view of a pregnant woman's naked breasts and midsection, microscopic photos of sperm, egg, zygote, embryo, and uterus appear in double-page spreads. The developing fetus is described month by month, with a photo illustrating each bi-monthly period. The newborn is featured in a couple of shots, and then readers are taken back into the womb for views of a four-month-old fetus accompanied by a brief discussion of birth defects. Technical terms are italicized and defined in context. Information is basic and none too specific; readers are not told, for instance, how the sperm gets to the fallopian tube, or even from where (or with whom) it originates. A lovely but not essential purchase.-Denise L. Moll, Lone Pine Elementary School, West Bloomfield, MI
