That question has been asked a million times by children and Nilsson has answered the question with this wonderful photographic book. Often parents are at a loss to explain the wonder and marvel of conception and birth. This book is a beautiful "tool" and easy to understand.

Done in two sections, a child of 5 tells of her mother's pregnancy from the time she learns that her mother is having a baby until the time of delivery. Told through the eyes of a child, it is more understandable for our children.

The phototgraphs are clear and accurate and the book is rich with detailed text.

and for the parents.......
Highly recommend this book !
