A bit wordy for anyone under the age of, say, 6, but it's easy enough to pare down. Really incredible photography, and the writing itself is nearly poetry. Highly recommended for any child that is interested in the pregnancy/birth process.
I was not impressed with the condition of the book however. I bought it used, because it was described as "like new", but after it arrived I noticed that many, many pages are stuck together with some gluey stuff, and when I tried to pry them open, it left nasty marks on the beautiful photos.

The book shows pictures and the story of the development of a baby in the womb. It begins with the fertilisation of the egg and end with the baby being born. While the pictures are very realistic they are not traumatising and have sparked some interesting discussions.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone with children who are interested in how babies are made and grown or anyone wanting to talk about a new arrival expected in the family.
