From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 2This book, aside from being visually unappealingfull of orange, white, and black sketches of wide-eyed and open-mouthed kidsis a puzzlement. The rambling text explains that women have breasts so they can make milk and feed it to their babies, but that meneven Sumo wrestlers who have big breastsdont make milk. Thats it. Its an incredibly unattractive book and the amateurish illustrations do nothing to explain the process. The milk ducts look like cauliflower florets in a strainer and the drawings of a baby and its mothers breast look more like the child is playing with Snoopys nose or two Junior Mints.Christine A.

From Kirkus Reviews
Following the success of Taro Gomi's Everyone Poops (1993, not reviewed), this is a similarly direct picture book from Japan, and more crudely done. Laughing at two children who think he's wearing a bra, a hefty man explains that it's only a belt over a tank top, then launches into a brief, patchy question-and-answer that covers the physical development of breasts (in women), nursing``When a baby grabs hold of the breast and sucks on the nipple (glug glug glug), milk flows from it''and why most people don't remember much of their babyhood. The two-color illustrations depict a series of mostly bare-chested men, women, and children, drawn with thick black lines and filled with a garish orange. Enlighten curious children by sharing relevant passages from such guides as Robie Harris's It's Perfectly Normal (1994) instead. (Picture book. 5-7) -- Copyright ©1999, Kirkus Associates, LP.
