5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Brilliant, 20 Feb 2011
This review is from: Where Willy Went (Paperback)
This book is a rare example of an honest, factual account of reproduction without going into uneccesary detail presented in a child-friendly manner. The book tells the reader that sperm comes out of the man's body and goes into the woman's body when they join together to make a baby. It shows the sperm come from the testes and the egg from the woman's tummy. There is no mention of the physical act of sex other than the couple are in a bed together; this is not a necessary part of the answer to 'where do babies come from?' for a small child.

I was also very impressed that the couple are Mr and Mrs - another reviewer was not happy about this and thought there was another way to show that sex happened in a stable relationship. I disagree, I accept that my children may not marry before they have children but I intend to teach them that babies should be born in a permanent stable relationship that and marriage is just that; I cannot personally think of another way the author could have described that in a manner that small children would understand without some kind of adult level discussion of relationships.

My husband and I have always tried to be as open and honest as age-appropriate with our children whilst preserving their innocent and childhood as much as we could. Our daughter is nearly 7 and our son is 9 and I think this book does this perfectly.

A super review; I'm so glad that someone else thinks that the marriage 'ingredient' is integral to producing children. Your review has convinced me to buy this book. Thanks!
