Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good This book is very, very good. Straight forward, appropriatly detailed, funny. I was kind of surprised to see "ages 4-6" for it, because I read it to my 8 year old and found it quite appropriate. Although after reading it I would say ages 4-6 is fine, too. It's a great book if you find the subject a little uncomfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ahh... memories This book taught my brother and I about S-E-X. I remember it well and would highly recommend it for anyone who is looking for a safe and open discussion with their younger children about the 'S' word.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent This is a fantastic book to teach young children the truth about where babies come from. It has an honest approach with some humour. The pictures, though cartoons, are accurate and help take some of the embarrassment of the subject away when reading to children. My parents bought it for my sister and I when our baby brother was on his way, and I have since bought it for both my siblings when they became parents.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Where Did I Come From? For any parent looking for a great first book on helping their kids to understand the facts of life, this is very easy to read and the pictures are wonderful. I would recommend it because my mother gave it to me when I was going through my changes. I enjoyed reading it then, and it helped me to understand where I came from.

About the Author

Peter Mayle was born in 1939 in England. He began his career in advertising as a copywriter and rose to the executive ranks, but left advertising in 1975. A prolific writer and journalist, Mayle became famous in 1990 with his best selling book "A Year in Provence," which chronicles his adventures buying and restoring an old farmhouse in the south of France. The novel was awarded the British Book Awards' Best Travel Book of the Year. Mayle published a successful sequel in 1991, "Toujours Provence." Mayle's descriptions of his adventures in France are exuberant and entertaining. He writes with affection and humor about his experiences with workmen and the lengthy, oft-delayed renovation of the farmhouse. He describes meals, wines, markets, scenery, and people in lavish detail. His books, in fact, have led to an increase in the popularity of the little village of Menerbes, and it has become a popular tourist site. Buying and renovating a house in Southern France has become almost a fad, one Mayle notes with some chagrin in "Toujours Provence." Mayle has written two more bestsellers, "Acquired Tastes: A Beginner's Guide to Serious Pleasure" (1992) and "Hotel Pastis" (1993) a novel set in Provence. Prior to writing about his home in France, Mayle had written a number works, many for young adults, on themes of sexuality, divorce, and birth control. He contributed to the London Sunday Times, the Financial Times, Gentleman's Quarterly, and Esquire, among others. His work has been tra
