We liked the illustrations the best... it’s the same author as Ivy + Bean, as my daughter noticed!

I didn’t preview and just judged the book by its adorable cover.

The text And plot and word choices were okay. It seems like a good book for kids. But my kids Already understand conception and gestation so “stork brought them” tropes were kind of weird to them.

It’s not a book I will buy or maybe check out on purpose again but I’d be okay re reading it if my kids selected it. 3.5/5

This is a pretty cute book, I loved the illustrations. It's pretty light on science/fact, and may take a couple of readings to get the information across.

A very gentle introduction to where babies come from.
