"Momma, where do babies come from?" my then four year old son asked.  After the initial shock of the question hit me, I managed to say from Mommy's bellies.  That answer seemed to work but as he is getting older, more questions  have emerged.  "Momma, how do babies get in Mommy's bellies?"  God puts them there, baby I answered.  "Momma, what did we look like when we were in your belly?"  Now, both of my sons have become more curious since they are the older cousins on my side of the family.  They have seen their aunts pregnant and the awesomeness that comes from having baby cousins younger than them.  My sister is pregnant with her second child, and the questions started again. I can't tell you how thankful I was when this book arrived!

This book is incredible! It is a beautiful story of conception through birth and beyond, told in a Biblical and child appropriate way. If you have ever had your child ask, "Where do babies come from?" I could not think of a better book or way to describe it than this book. You and your child can read through each week of pregnancy and read what body parts are being formed, how big the baby is and the size of the baby compared to objects that a child would know like an olive. I loved that there was scripture referenced and the illustrations are exquisite. The illustrator did a wonderful job of depicting babies and families from many different cultures and nationalities, and there is even discussion of births of multiples. It was so fun reading this book with my sons and remembering when I was pregnant with them. They were fascinated with every detail of the book. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants an honest and Biblical description of how to tell your child where babies come from.
