It's Not the Stork << Prev page
A Book About Girls, Boys, Babies, Bodies ,Families and Friends
Robie Harris
Illustrated by Michael Emberley
More by Robie Harris

A breathtaking amount of research went into the creation of this child's first book about sex. Several years in the making, it is a masterpiece of combining an age-appropriate amount of information in a way that is inviting, upbeat, and clear. This book has no agenda other than to present accurate information about our bodies and, ultimately, how babies are made.

Beginning with acknowledging that there many ways in which girls and boys are the same, it goes on to talk about and illustrate the ways in which they are physically different –- both externally and internally. Smoothly and in a way children can understand, the topic segues into how those differences make it possible for eggs and sperm to be produced, why (ital) they exist, and how a baby begins and is ultimately born. The book touches on other issues any child can encounter and any curious child can be expected to wonder about -- C-sections, multiple births, circumcision, adoption, foster parents, stepparents, ''okay touches'' and ''NOT okay touches'' – and does so with graceful and simple aplomb.

It's NOT the Stork! offers a solid foundation upon which our children can feel knowledgeable and comfortable about their bodies. Approved by science, health and child-development experts, it is a classic in the making. Robie Harris and Michael Emberley have created the perfect book for curious children (and what children aren't curious about their bodies, where babies come from, etc.?) and their parents. As far as we're concerned, it belongs in every home!
