About the Author
Rachel Greener is a children's books editor from London who has edited fiction, nonfiction and picture books about everything from the ancient Egyptians and ocean plastics to teenage detectives and zombie goldfish. She wrote this book because she thinks it is important that all children have a chance to see their family story reflected in a book about where babies come from.

Clare Owen graduated from art school in 2009 and has been working as a freelance illustrator ever since. She works on a big variety of fun projects, creating pictures and patterns for home products, stationery, picture books, magazines, and packaging--all influenced by her love of color, nature, and mid-century design. Originally from Cornwall, she now lives in Bristol with her boyfriend and two cats.
Reviews
A 2022 NCSS-CBC Notable Social Studies Trade Books List Selection

"This babymaking primer takes a decidedly inclusive approach to the topic, steering clear of rigidly gendered language and featuring a wide range of family members and configurations. Using a muted color palette, Owen's cleanly rendered art has a retro aesthetic and includes people of different races, genders, shapes, and abilities--happy-looking families all . . . An authentic and honest celebration of babies, families, and diversity." --Horn Book

"A book that really tells it like it is, from the sex act to birth, without shying away from topics such as male, female, and intersex genders, egg and sperm donations, and C-sections, this should be available in all public and school libraries." --School Library Journal
