Editorial Reviews

The book serves as a great way to introduce male and female body parts for anyone not used to discussing or naming them.
-School Library Journal (starred review)

Harris'' tone is cheerful and confident... Westcott''s bright digital illustrations keep the affair as breezy and non-shocking as possible -- just as it should be. Expect the usual outcry, as well as the usual demand.
-Booklist (starred review)

This much-needed title stands out for its comfortably familiar presentation of material adults sometime find difficult to share with young children.
