Book Review

A short overview of this book

The Facts of Life: Three-Dimensional, Moveable Illustrations Showing the Development of a Baby from Conception to Birth by Jonathan Miller and David Pelham is a vintage 3D pop-up book that provides an illustrated educational overview of reproduction and conception ie how babies are made.

I love this book that was published in the 80’s. I was so excited when I finally found a copy of this book! And I was even more excited when it arrived in the mail! Even my kids (who find ‘yet another sex ed book’ a little boring) actually got a little bit excited and sat down and had a good look at it too!

Inside you’ll find 6 huge popups of the baby inside the uterus, the male reproductive organs, the female reproductive organs, the egg being fertilised, the fetus developing, and the baby inside the uterus pushing it’s head down ready for birth. Plus there are lots of little lift the flap sections, with tabs to pull that will make things move.

The images are medicalised and lifelike but aren’t too threatening. The 3D element just makes it so much more fun and interesting to look at!
