by Dr. Jillian Roberts; Cindy Revell (illus.)

Where Do Babies Come From Jillian Roberts Cindy RevellWith this title, Orca introduces its Just Enough series of books by child psychologist Jillian Roberts, who takes a gentle, age-appropriate approach to informing kids about tricky subjects. The first instalment tackles the perennial question: Where do babies come from? Using honesty, plain language, and proper terminology, Roberts covers the basics, but also includes answers to a few common follow-up questions for kids who are curious or ready for more information. Cindy Revell’s bright illustrations highlight diversity and provide visual clarity that enhances the text. This is a great starting point for parents and caregivers who might need a bit of help knowing how much to tell little ones.
