Have you ever wondered how much your children know about human reproduction but are afraid to ask? Then this is the book for you. Written and illustrated by the award-winning Babette Cole it is, according to the Bookseller: "Funny, factual and frank...a superb book...the ideal ice-breaker for parents."
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.
I laugh at the illustrations of mummy & daddy fitting together on a skateboard whilst my son laughs at the idea that boy babies are made from slugs & snails & puppydogs tails!
Excellent-I've bought all my friends a copy for their children.
