Overview

'Mom, where do babies come from'? Many parents live in fear of the day their child asks this question-which inevitably happens, often as early as the preschool years. Here is a picture book designed especially for young children who are becoming aware of their bodies, but aren't ready to learn about sexual intercourse. Written with warmth and honesty, Amazing You! presents clear and age-appropriate information about reproduction, birth, and the difference between girls' and boys' bodies. Lynne Cravath's lighthearted illustrations enliven the text, making this a book that parents will gladly share with their young ones.

Good for teaching young children about their body parts and about keeping thier bodies to themselves. It's all cartoonish so that parents that are uncomfortable with the idea of thier young children seeing actual pictures can relax.

This book covers the basics of anatomy, privacy and where babies come from with just the right amount of detail for a very young child. The drawings were very helpful in explaining gender differences to my child who has no siblings and was curious as to what "parts" the other sex has. I would absolutely recommend this book for kids even before they start asking questions. The information within is an important foundation for the questions that are sure to come...

I bought this yesterday for my 4-year old who asked me 'how babies get into the mommy.' The book has wonderful pictures, and just enough information to answer questions without going too far for little ones. In fact, it had so much great stuff that my daughter's questions were more like 'why is the mommy wearing a different dress on this page?' :) It was absolutely perfect for what I was looking for.

This book describe the private parts of male and female bodies in a way that small children can understand. There are picture that show the vagina, penis, and male/female reproductive organs. Then the book goes on to explain in a very "PG" way of where babies come from and how. This would be a good book for any child that is wondering about their body and what is normal as you grow up.

Amazing you is exactly what you learn about in this book. It gives generic details in a preschoolers view point of their private parts. Great to use in a science class to learn about private parts and how they work.

This is a box for children who are curious about their body and where babies come from. This book can also be used to approach the topic with your kids.

I bought this book to begin the conversation with my very curious 8 year old son. It was colorful, informative and accurate. It is recommended for "preschoolers" although I can not imagine presenting it early in age than 8 or so... just how I parent. I like how it handled conception. It did not use the word intercourse. I feel like that it a term I would like to talk about in a few years with him.
