Book Review: How do You Make a Baby by Anna Fiske is a European children’s book that provides a frank approach to how babies are made (and sex).
A short overview of this book
How do You Make a Baby by Anna Fiske is a frank but humorous approach to how babies are made. This book is a little controversial because of the direct approach it takes eg an illustration of a naked man and woman kissing, with an arrow pointing to the vagina, and text saying ‘Come here’. I’ve heard quite a few complaints from parents about this book, so you will either like it or hate it.
What I do like about this book, is that it talks in more detail than most children’s books do, about love and how a loving relationship may lead to sex. It also explains that a baby isn’t made every time you have sex. Like most new books on this topic, it also discusses the other ways a baby is made.
I don’t mind this book but it wouldn’t be the first book I’d recommend to a parent. But if you had a child who was resistant to reading, and you felt that a book with humour might attract their attention, then this book would work.
Sexual intercourse is talked about in this book.
