From the Publisher
The trusted, New York Times best-selling author of It''s
Perfectly Normal presents a charming and reassuring picture book
series for preschoolers.
Young children are curious about almost everything. Asking
questions is one of many ways they learn about themselves and the
world around them. Now, this unique series for our youngest
children provides easy-to-understand facts and answers to their
delightful, thoughtful, and often nonstop questions. Launching the
series is WHO HAS WHAT?, a simple story following Nellie and Gus on
a family outing to the beach. Humorous illustrations, conversations
between the siblings, and a clear text all reassure young kids that
whether they have a girl''s body or a boy''s, their bodies are
perfectly normal, healthy, and wonderful. Authoring the series is
Robie H. Harris, whose nonfiction books are known as the source for
addressing kids'' questions about themselves, their families, and
their friends. Nadine Bernard Westcott''s accurate and entertaining
illustrations offer an inviting way for children to discover
straightforward, fascinating information about themselves.

-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.
