  • Great book about how babies are made

    by on

    A wonderful way of teaching little kids about how babies are made in a non embarrassing way. Includes IVF, with and without donors. My five year old loves it.
    But I think the previous review uses better wording!

  • The ideal 'birds and bees' book

    by on

    This a warm, funny and ideal way to introduce the story of how babies are made, with frank, clear pictures the parent can explain in their own words or use the simple, straightforward and correct text. It is inclusive of all nationalities,and the various ways in which babies may be conceived.
