MINI TREASURES: delightful mini picture books to treasure forever. MUMMY LAID AN EGG Mum and Dad decide it's time to tell the kids about the facts of life. But do they dare? And do the really know everything about the birds and the bees?
Mum and Dad decide that it is high time to tell their children about the facts of life, and put forward theories about gingerbread, growing seeds in the greenhouse, being squidged out of tubes and laying eggs. However, the children have clearer ideas about seeds, tubes and eggs and put their parents right. (Ages 6 and up) --Susan Naylor --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
Other 'facts of life' fodder was way too in-depth for my daughter to cope with. However after several sessions of reading 'Mummy Laid an Egg' she suddenly piped up and said "Oh so it comes out of your bottom" and hasn't wanted to know any more since.
The pictures are hilarious, the text is concise yet still gives enough information for ages 3+ to digest and more importantly understand. A brilliant book either for answering those awkward questions a prospective sibling provokes or introducing the subject they'll all be fascinated with by puberty.
