Book Review: Where do Babies Come From? Our first talk about birth by Dr Jillian Roberts is a first book for younger children that simply explains the facts of life.
A short overview of this book
Where Do Babies Come From? by Dr Jillian Roberts is a simple book that explains to younger children where babies come from.
This book does not talk about sexual intercourse. Instead, it talks about two ingredients being needed (a sperm and an egg) to make a baby. These two parts come from the parents, and when it’s time to make a baby, these two bodies will fit together. The sperm will find the egg and a seed is planted in the womb.
The book is very much focused on the traditional mother-father family, with no mention of the other ways a baby can be made. It also only mentions natural birth, excluding caesarian births.
These things, along with sexual intercourse, are mentioned in the back of the book, as text only (with no illustrations).
SEXUAL INTERCOURSE IS NOT DISCUSSED.
