Shelves: adoption-reads
This is fabulous book to help parents introduce the topic of how babies are made. Here is what I like:

-The paintings and illustrations are beautiful and depict families of different races which I appreciate.

- On each page there is big font, which is sometimes more prosey but aloften so has pages that have rhythm and rhyme as well. This read-out loud text for children under age 8.

- Text box containing a smaller font goes into a little more detail and if a child is about 8

This book was part of our school curriculum and I am very pleased with how it handles this topic. With two different text options on each page for children of varying ages. I found myself volleying between these options to customize the text for my child. If you want to address reproduction with children, and do so from a Christian perspective, I recommend this book to you. I especially appreciate the author's inclusion of several pages on adoption. I normally have to add a few words about adopt ...more

Looks like a baby book, but has some great Christian biology lessons for older kids too!

The rhyming verse is god-awful from an literary perspective, but the message is good. I love how they include adoption and the story of the incarnation.

Astonishingly, given the obsession our culture has for sex, many books on the topic (both Christian and secular) somehow make it boring and uncomfortable. This book, beautifully written and pleasingly illustrated, is neither. The author does a very nice job placing sex within a larger context by describing how God created the universe and the world, and how He allows living beings to participate in that creative work through procreation. The institution of marriage is described as the appropriat ...more

This is a wonderful resource that a friend recommended. There are two levels of reading, for younger and older children. I read the older version with my young teen today (probably could have read it earlier, but he wasn't interested), and despite the assumed awkwardness of the topic, I found it tremendously well written, guiding us along not just how babies are made, but the background and big picture of sex in the first place. Between this book and "Lintball Leo's not-so-stupid Questions about ...more

I could go on forever about why I didn't like this book, here's the breakdown - the good and the bad: great illustrations, ethically diverse representation and comprehensive in everything from natural birth to adoptions. What I didn't like was the theological tone (I didn't realize it was a christian book until I got it home from the library). I admit that I am agnostic at best, but this seemed very judgemental (sex is only intended for married couples who are going to have a baby), hypocritical ...more

Super book to tastefully introduce the birds and the bees from a Christian perspective.

This is a beautiful book. I have used it with both of my older girls to go over the birds and the bees - God's way. It is not threatening or intimidating!
