Reviews

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.
