I purchased this for my 4yr old daughter ... its a great story, brings up loads of questions ... but I did have to skip some pages ... maybe I am old fashioned, but I think showing pictures on how a baby is born to a 4yrs is a little too much .... I didnt read this paragraph "When a baby is ready to be born the woman's uterus squeezes and squeezes, and the baby comes out into the world", plus it shows the pictures of the baby ... honestly I just skiped these pages. So if I knew this was in this book I would have not purchased this book until she is older.

I bought this book for my four year old. I like the fact that the book addresses adoption in a simple, straight-forward, and positive way. It also touches on how babies are born (a great curiousity at this age). A great book for parents to read with their kids!
