Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristin Harris
Originally published in Japan, this is a common sense discussion of breasts. Men don't wear bras because they don't have large breasts, but women do. Women have breasts to make milk and feed babies. Even women who don't have babies have breasts. At about ten years of age, a girl's breast begin to fill out. A cross section of a breast shows the milk glands and ducts. We learn how babies suck on the nipple to get the milk to flow. This would be a perfect book for the older brother or sister who is very curious about the new baby in the house and how the baby eats. Very simple, stylized illustrations are executed in a cartoon style. The book is filled with lots of very sweet images of babies sucking on a mother's breast.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2This book, aside from being visually unappealingfull of orange, white, and black sketches of wide-eyed and open-mouthed kidsis a puzzlement. The rambling text explains that women have breasts so they can make milk and feed it to their babies, but that meneven Sumo wrestlers who have big breastsdont make milk. Thats it. Its an incredibly unattractive book and the amateurish illustrations do nothing to explain the process. The milk ducts look like cauliflower florets in a strainer and the drawings of a baby and its mothers breast look more like the child is playing with Snoopys nose or two Junior Mints.Christine A. Moesch, Buffalo & Erie County Public Library, NY Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Following the success of Taro Gomi's Everyone Poops (1993, not reviewed), this is a similarly direct picture book from Japan, and more crudely done. Laughing at two children who think he's wearing a bra, a hefty man explains that it's only a belt over a tank top, then launches into a brief, patchy question-and-answer that covers the physical development of breasts (in women), nursing-"When a baby grabs hold of the breast and sucks on the nipple (glug glug glug), milk flows from it"-and why most people don't remember much of their babyhood. The two-color illustrations depict a series of mostly bare-chested men, women, and children, drawn with thick black lines and filled with a garish orange. Enlighten curious children by sharing relevant passages from such guides as Robie Harris's It's Perfectly Normal (1994) instead. (Picture book. 5-7) .
