This book was EXCELLENT! Jan 12, 2007
My daughter loved this book and she wasn't embarassed by it at all. I felt it was time to start explaining things to my 8 1/2 year old daughter. With all the talk of "sex" on television, I knew she was getting curious as to what "having sex" meant. This book dealt with the issuse in a very kid friendly narrative. It's not factual, but a great story with words, pronunciation, and careful explainations. There's no good way of getting around explaining the "sex act", but this book handles he subject in a delicate, but clear way.
The OTHER book that I bought, "Before I Was Born", by Carolyn Nystrom, in my opinion was WAAAAAY too descriptive for 5 to 8 year old. It, in so many words, decribes an orgasm! "Body parts fitting inside others, semen flowing inside of her and bodies feeling good all over." It sounds graphic and I paraphrased!!! That is just unnecessary for a parent who desires to teach the basics of sexuality to a young child. This is more for an older pre-teen.
I would definitely recommend "Where Do Babies Come From?"
great book Nov 1, 2005
This book is simple and to the point! My kids loved it, especially my 6 year old son. It was just enough for him to know at this time.
Not For Kids Who Were Adopted Oct 31, 2003
I do not like this book overall. While it does have age appropriate discussion of sex and pregnancy with a Christian focus, the text is too long in my opinion for a child of the target age to sit and listen. My primary objection is that this book is not appropriate at all for adopted children. The stories are told entirely from the point of view of a birth child. The comments and discussions focus on the idea of children being born into the family, nursing to be fed, and so on. There is a very tiny discussion about all families being "different" and a particular child not looking like his birth parents b/c he was adopted; this plus the strong focus of the text on birth families would alienate a child who was adopted rather than inform him/her. If you are looking for a facts of life book and your child was adopted, do not get this book.
An excellent educational book . Must for all parents Jun 20, 2001
Using this book in our family provided the development of an excellent foundation to develop trust with our children. Children are aware of the special nature of parents reading stories to kids. Many parents and guardians find this a difficult subject to talk freely about. Using the story telling approach neutralises any apprehensions parents or children may have. Ruth has used questioning from the children to their parents on different things and this encourages children to ask questions. The environment of story reading and the ease at which questions arise and are answered by parents is brilliant. God's involvement in the process lets children know how special they are.
The Best Book on the Market for this Subject! Jan 4, 2000
I was looking for a book for my 8-year-old that was to the point, descriptive (but in good taste), and informative about where babies come from. Not only did this book fit the bill, but it is also written with a God-based text which I really appreciated.
There is a storyline with a 7-year-old asking questions of her mother and father and it covers topics such as: physical differences between men and women with anatomical names, how married people show their love for each other, how fertilization occurs, how women and men help in raising children. It also briefly touches on adoption, breastfeeding, and other related topics.
An excellent choice for opening up the lines of communication on this sensitive subject with your children!
