The perfect place to start

Oh, my goodness, I can't believe it's still out there. Like another reviewer, I remembered the book with cut-outs that my parents gave to me to read about the "facts of life," more years ago than I care to remember. It is an absolutely wonderful tool for parents attempting to teach their child(ren) about something that is still, in this day and age, a difficult subject.

Still the best after 36 years

I recommend this book to everyone. First issued in 1968 when I was 6 years old, I still remember being impressed, even at that age, by the logical progression of this book. It explains in the most respectful, lucid way where babies come from. I passed this book on to my older sister when she had kids and they hung on to it and passed it down to me when my kids were learning to read. I just left it in the bookcase and they all picked it up when they were ready for it. For anyone mystified about how and where to begin explaining this subject, here is everything you need. This book is in no way dated and should still be at the top of every list of books on this subject.

THE WINNER & STILL CHAMPION

SIMPLY PUT, "HOW BABIES ARE MADE" IS BY FAR THE BEST BOOK EVER WRITTEN THAT PARENTS, TEACHERS, & OTHERS CAN AND SHOULD USE TO TEACH BASIC SEX EDUCATION TO CHILDREN. YOUNSTERS LEARN JUST ENOUGH FROM IT, AND IT MAKES THE JOB OF CONCERNED ADULTS VERY EASY. "HOW BABIES ARE MADE" WAS ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED IN (1968 or 1969). IT WAS THE FIRST OF ITS KIND. SINCE THEN,(36 OR 35 YEARS), MANY OTHER BOOKS ON THE SUBJECT HAVE BEEN PUBLISHED, YET NOT ONE EVEN COMES CLOSE TO "HOW BABIES ARE MADE" - IF THERE EVER WAS A CHAMP, THIS IS IT! IN ADDITION, IT'S SO "CURRENT" YOU WOULD THINK IT WAS WRITTEN JUST YESTERDAY, AND IN FACT, THIS BOOK IS NEEDED AS MUCH AS WHEN ORIGINALLY WRITTEN, IF NOT MORE SO TODAY!

Just enough for my 6 year old

My very inquisitive, 6 year old scientist wanted to know the facts. This book eases everyone into the conversation, starting with plant reproduction, then animals and of course, finally people. It's written in a way as to not interfere with religious beliefs, and brief enough to allow parents to input their own values.

excellent for small children

Hurray to the author of this book! Some things in life don't change and how babies get made is one of those things. I didn't want explicit technical pictures. This book provides a platform for the embarrassed parent. The pictures are simple cutouts that explain the process of reproduction. The book begins with flowers and pollination and progresses steadily towards human fertilization. No shocks, no surprises, just simple facts clearly stated. Excellent book. Children are still children and shocking them with a book that they are not prepared to look at is not the answer. This book was a mild approach to a tense subject and I've already recommended it to friends.
