Reviews

Clear, direct and anatomically correct; an excellent entryway for the many anticipated questions about childbirth.
--Kirkus Reviews

This book is suitable for young children who are just beginning to ask the question, "Where do babies come from?" ... [A] good first book to recommend to parents.
--School Library Journal

Correct terminology is used for body parts, but there's nothing clinical about the down-to-earth writing... Creating a cheerful, easygoing tone on every double-page spread, the digital line-and-wash illustrations portray a biracial family within a diverse community. A helpful book for presenting information and opening discussions with young children who are curious about pregnancy and birth.
--Booklist

Westcott's chummy, affectionate multicultural cast will once again successfully open parent/child discussion on building a family -- whatever the family.
--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

In this introduction to pregnancy that is as charming as it is anatomically-correct, the story of an expectant family is interwoven with playful, cutaway drawings of the growing fetus -- first the size of an apple seed, then a peach, then finally a sweet, swaddled bundle named Jake.
