The Baby Book by Alex Latimer, Diane Awerbuck and Christian Jaggers

This book will help you understand your wonderful body and how babies are made. This is not a storybook but rather a wonderful resource for explaining the beginnings of human life to children. Some illustrations may be inappropriate for children under the age of 12 without guidance and explanations from an adult.
