Product description

Review

Straightforward, informative, and personable…This book will be accessible to its intended audience, comforting in its clarity and directness, and useful to a wide range of readers.
—School Library Journal (starred review)

Harris’ respectful writing targets children’s natural curiosity without cloaking matters in obfuscating language.
—Booklist (starred review)

In their previous landmark volumes . . . Harris and Emberley established themselves as the purveyors of reader-friendly, straightforward information on human sexuality for readers as young as seven. Here they successfully tackle the big questions . . . for even younger kids.
—The Horn Book (starred review)

An excellent introduction to babies’ origins for youngest curious minds.
—Publishers Weekly (featured in Children’s Notes: True Companions)

Emberley's cartoon cast, a celebration of demographic diversity, do double duty as helpful diagrams of body parts and fetal development, and as examples of loving families in action.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

A happy addition to the Harris-Emberley family.
—Kirkus Reviews

Many parents will like this book’s direct approach.
—Wall Street Journal

This informative book covers everything from why boys and girls have different body parts to how a baby is born.
—Parents

The book is written in clear, straightforward language and accompanied by cartoon illustrations.
—Columbus Dispatch (included in a list of the top children’s books of the year)

Adults will gratefully draw on the book's frank language and friendly tone when talking things over with their kids in the car or at the zoo… This must-have family resource addresses all kinds of such funny misconceptions, supplying instead the real facts of life.
—San Francisco Chronicle

Tackles the sensitive subject of human reproduction with delicacy and honesty.
—Baltimore’s Child

We recommend these books for parents, teachers, librarians, health professionals and clergy as trusted and accessible resources to get answers and information about how to talk to youth about sexuality.
—The Parent Buzz

There's a direct correlation between fear of naming body parts and kids' interest in finding out about them…The lucky ones discover the Robie Harris/Michael Emberley<B> </B>books…
—Newbery winner Susan Patron, quoted in PW Children's Bookshelf

Well-laced with humorous illustrations and diagrams that convey information as well as maintain the cheerful, even exuberant, ‘it’s perfectly natural’ tone of this book.
—Toronto Globe & Mail

Pure sterling. . . . No family with young children (or naïve young adults?) should miss this one.
—Sacramento Bee

A perfect starting point for sex education.
—Fort Worth Star-Telegram

Simple language and colorful illustrations present straightforward and easily understood topics that are sometimes controversial.
—Library Media Connection

From School Library Journal

Starred Review. Kindergarten-Grade 3–Harris opens by introducing two cartoon characters–a green-feathered bird clad in a purple shirt and blue high-top sneakers and his spike-haired friend, a bee. They wonder, So where DO babies come from? Their conversational commentary, given in word balloons, is a lighthearted supplement to a more focused narrative. Told in the second person, the text is straightforward, informative, and personable. Facts are presented step-by-step, starting from the similarities and differences between boys and girls bodies, moving to a babys conception, growth in the womb, and birth, ending with an exploration of different configurations of families as well as a section on okay versus not okay touches. The book is logically organized into 23 double-page sections. Friendly and relaxed cartoons, either interspersed with the text or appearing in comic-strip form, are integral to the titles success in imparting the material. The labeled drawings show both the outside and the inside parts of the body. As the bee and bird say to one another, Knowing the names of ALL the parts of your body is–PERFECTLY NORMAL! Overall, this book will be accessible to its intended audience, comforting in its clarity and directness, and useful to a wide range of readers.–Martha Topol, Traverse Area District Library, Traverse City, MI
