My Thoughts:

How Do Babies Come into this World is also known as How Babies are Born?  The change in title is simply due to a different edition.

This is a wonderful book to bring out when your child asks the inevitable question “Where do babies come from?” Many parents have a difficult time answering this question because they don’t know how much information to give the child.

Lior and Orly and two children who are playing together when they start chatting about how babies come into the world. They talk about the different things that they have heard. They don’t really believe these could be the real way it happens but there is no one around to tell them how it really happens. Then the book they have with them speaks up and offers to tell them.

I love this book because it explains some of the myths we have used to explain to children over the many years such as the stork brings them, they grow in the cabbage patch or they grow out of flowers. Then in simple words it explains the different ways that different animals bring their babies into the world, and lastly how moms and dads bring babies into the world.

There is no information that will cause anyone to blush in this book, but the information is complete enough that it will satisfy young curious minds. Correct vocabulary is used such as egg, sperm and womb.

This is a great story to read to your children or for beginning readers to read for themselves with some help for the larger vocabulary words like incubating, fertilize, and pregnancy.

The illustrations in How Do Babies Come into this World are bright and boldly coloured. They are humorous and interesting. The only one I had a little trouble with was the one with the cat sperm and eggs. It looked like they were underground as Lior, Orly and the Book were pictured sitting/standing just above them.

The best thing of all is that this book comes with a free audio version of the book that you can request on-line after you read the book. This will allow your child to listen to the book over and over again with or without you reading it to them. Following along with the audio version will also help them learn to recognize words as beginning readers.

I attempted to download the audio version of this book. When I clicked on the link it sent me an email in which was supposed to be the link to get the book. However, there was no working link in the email. My attempts to contact the author regarding this issue were not resolved before this review was published.

I think How Do Babies Come into this World is an excellent choice for families and schools who want a book to help them explain some of the facts of life to younger children. I would highly recommend it! I gave it 5 stars out of 5!

Thank you to the author for providing a copy of the book in exchange for a fair and honest review. A positive opinion was not required. All thoughts are my own.
