What Makes A Baby: The Giveaway

“But I don’t understand. How does the baby get in to the uterus?”

The truth is, when your adorable progeny asks the question it can be very awkward and seem to come out of the blue. Some of us stumble. For those of you who’d prefer the talk didn’t go as badly as it did for Lee, there’s an amazing resource in the form of the book, What Makes A Baby.

This book has the answers.

This book has answers.


What Makes A Baby lovingly and engagingly answers the question that little children have about their origin in a way that doesn’t exclude any person. Cory Silverberg’s simple, sensitive text along with Fiona Smyth’s bright, playful illustrations, make this my favourite book about bodies, babies, and the big big questions on the minds of little little kids, by a MILE (or kilometre, this being Canada and all). And I’ve read quite a few.

Lee and I love this book so much that we want to give our Canadian friends a chance to win there own copy. So we are having a GIVEAWAY!!!!!!

High fives all around

      Lucky you? You have something in common with the author, Cory Silverberg, who is the child of a sex educator and a children’s librarian!

    I was around 4 when I asked about babies, and was introduced to the delightful 1970s classic “Where Do I Come From?”. Apparently around this time, I also developed a fondness for announcing to strangers in public that “I have a vagina!” #feminist4life
