"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

One thing I really love about this book is that it explains this all to a child in a way that’s easy for them to understand, without causing any confusion. And it’s also a great catalyst for discussions or for your child to ask questions about their beginning. This is all so important, especially if your child is one of the lucky few who took a little "Extra". Love it!
This book also does a good job of showing kids of different ethnicities and kids with same sex parents. It's a light-hearted, sweet read that I look forward to sharing with my kiddo.
Navigating trying to build a family in ways that require extra work is, well, extra work, and yet there's so much love in going those routes. This really is a testament to the hard work of the parents (but kids probably won't understand that until much later).
What I love about this book is the easy to follow, conversational style that will resonate with little ones. It allows parents who required extra to start the conversation earlier, so kids can take on understanding as they grow, when they are comfortable. It shows how much they were wanted, loved, and hoped for even before they arrived, and it gives parents a safe way to start to talk about these things without feeling like they're doing it wrong.
I've not found another book like this one on the market, and I think it's a mandatory read for families who required a little extra love and time to finally come together.
