Recommends it for: parents reading with their children
This is a wonderful book that introduces the concept of reproduction in a straightforward, but not-too-graphic way. It is honest, basic, and is the perfect introduction for younger children. Cute pictures that keep a child's interest and a great way to start a conversation.
This is the best one I've found so far. Addresses plant, animal, and human reproduction. Very tactful and loving.

Haven't read it to the boys yet. We'll probably read it next time Samuel brings up the pregnancy and babies thing, which he does periodically.

This is a great first book about sex. It talks about how living things (flowers, birds, cats, people)come from sperm which meet tiny eggs. It shows what kittens look like inside the mommy cat, and what a baby looks like inside a human mommy.
Really good introductory book about reproduction. Appropriate for very young child or just a good introduction.
no pics of anatomy or people in bed together. very nice introduction to animal reproduction

Here is some brief information about myself.

I’m interested in science because I think it helps you to understand the world. I like writing and editing because every project is different – with CD-ROMs, I particularly enjoy the challenge of working with multi-media. Although I’ve written loads of books, I still get excited when the first copies of a new series arrive!
