The book serves as a great way to introduce male and female body parts for anyone not used to discussing or naming them.
—School Library Journal (starred review)
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.
—Booklist (starred review)
This much-needed title stands out for its comfortably familiar presentation of material adults sometime find difficult to share with young children.

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. I read that sentence as "Between their legs, girls, baby girls, and women have a clitoris, a vulva and three openings." I point to the picture and say "her clitoris is here, just above the opening where the pee comes out" (which is how the urethral opening is described in the book). It's not a perfect solution, and while I understand the authors' intent to rely on very simple descriptions, it would be great to know the reasoning behind completely omitting a visible part of a girl's body. We're already so squeamish about girls' genitals, calling their genitalia their flower, their bits, their woo-woo... is it too much to ask that in a book about their bodies, visible female parts should be represented and named?
The thing I didn't like is they refer to the vulva as "opening to the vagina", the anus as "where the poop comes out," etc. I would rather teach my children proper terms. But it was easy enough to just write them in.
She showed interest in the subject and the book introduces it very nicely.
It starts out with all the things males and females have in common and then (after a lot of repetition of commonalities) goes into the differences on a very basic level and again with some repetition. At the end of the female text it says that baby boys aren't born with those parts and at the end of the male text it says that baby girls aren't born with those parts.
It's very simple and age appropriate.
