Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

YA. Full-color photographs and a lucid text are perfectly melded to form an outstanding record of human life from conception to the magnificent moments following birth. Readers are treated to the astounding record of the most minute developments of the fetus from day to day and month to month in its mother's womb. A book with gorgeous photos and an informative narrative.

We loved sharing this book with our 11 year old daughter. As we hit each pregnancy milestone, we looked it up in the book. We loved reading about what new things the baby was doing and we really enjoyed the photographs. Amazing. We're now buying this book for our friends who just found out they're expecting.

Format: Hardcover
I bought a lot of books when I was pregnant, and this was one of the best. It is not a comprehensive overview of pregnancy or infant development. It is an oversized illustrated book that shows you what your baby looks like at various stages, and tells you some of the most interesting things about he or she as she develops inside of you. I loved it.

Who knew you could get a lense in there?!? The photography is what makes this book so unique. Incredible details of what that little baby looks like, right down to her fuzzy face at xx weeks, way before anyone would guess the little wonder was so developed. I've never seen images like these anywhere else. I got the book for my wife as a Christmas present, early in her pregnancy, and now we're looking to buy a copy for someone else. This will surely deepen your appreciation for how precious life is.

I saw this book at work [California Science Center] and immediately wanted to buy it, as so did my other staff members and friends. 2 of the girls in there are pregnant and they actually cried because these pictures show you very clearly the picture of what your baby looks like inside you. It even shows you when the baby first starts smiling and laughing and even tells you when they have the hiccups. I think it's a great book for everyone not just people who are going to have a baby. I bought this book along with "A child is Born" and they both are great.

We were so interested to see what was going on inside, which is why we purchased this book. It really helped us bond with our first daughter when we saw photos of her progress.

Format: Hardcover
This book is somewhat dated compared to _A Child is Born_ or _From Conception to Birth_. The photos aren't quite as good and the text isn't quite as detailed. While an interesting and informative book, the photographers of the other books were able to take clearer pictures.
