Harris' tone is cheerful and confident... Westcott's bright digital illustrations keep the affair as breezy and non-shocking as possible -- just as it should be. Expect the usual outcry, as well as the usual demand.

Since my daughter still likes to read this book, and since I do like the rest of it, I choose to just add in the words when I read it to her.Read more ›
Then, it talked about the couple of ways that we are different, and what those differences mean - that some of us are male, and some of us are female. (Though, now that I think about it, the author never used those words... It was always baby, girl, woman and baby, boy, man.)
This is NOT a sex-ed book for kids. Sex is never mentioned, not even when the topic of babies and becoming moms and dads comes up at the end of the book. This book really just answers one question - Who has what? And it does that very well.
This is an excellent primer for young children just starting to ask questions about their bodies (and their friends', parents', and pets' bodies.)
Aside from the purpose of the story, there are also features of the book that most wouldn't notice but some will appreciate. It isn't just a sea of waspy white people, the family in the book appears to be mixed race. There are people at the beach of all ages, races, shapes, and sizes. There's a pregnant asian woman, a woman breastfeeding her child, a woman wearing a hijab, a child in a wheelchair, grandparents taking care of a child, two men with some children, one man is bottle feeding a baby (in other words, possibly a family with two daddies). Some families will love this aspect, others will not, but it's something I appreciated for the lessons I plan to give my family. Aside from simply what parts everyone has, it could also springboard into a lesson on how people look act or dress differently and the different ways in which people can be a family.
I'm glad I ordered this book.
This book was perfect - just enough to give him the information he needs without getting into too much detail.
This book explains that boys and girls are mostly the same but the have some differences. They use the proper terms, penis, scrotum, testicles, vagina, uterus. They do have a sentence about baby's babies growing in the uterus and being able to drink best milk but no further information is given about the process of creating a baby or birthing one which is perfect for this age.
I was able to use the information in this book to explain to my daughter what her private areas were and that people should not touch them and she understood what I meant.

For those folks who may be wondering (as I was), this book is not particularly intact-friendly. The diagrams, while not particularly explicit, clearly show circumcised penises. Read morePublished 15 days ago by lakini28
