Perfect for small children
I bought this book three years ago when pregnant with my youngest. My other children were 3 and 1 at the time, and they both found it fascinating. Since then, I lent the book out to several people and have no idea where it ended up! I'm expecting another child now, and will be buying this book again for my kids who are now 6, 4 and 2. It is age-appropriate and gave me a jumping off point for how to explain sex and babies to small children in a way that they could understand. I can't recommend this book enough!
