What Makes a Baby?
Our best-selling children's book. Very accurate, informative and fun!
"This is a solid, occasionally quirky book on an important topic." —School Library Journal
“It’s an informative and entertaining read for kids of all parents, straight or queer. And, hey, even if your kids were conceived the old-fashioned way, they should know not everyone was—and why.”
"What Makes a Baby aims to be just about the most inclusive sex ed book for kids you've ever come across[...] it has none of this mommy and daddy love each other and he watered her flower with his watering can and then a baby was born stuff;What Makes a Baby is for kids around four to eight years of age, teaching them about"conception, gestation, and birth" using really specific language."
"What Makes a Baby is a delightful, touching, brilliantly written and beautifully illustrated book that really is ‘for every kind of family, and every kind of kid.’ It creates space for parents to answer questions about reproduction in an age appropriate way and in a way that also speaks to the reality of their family and those around them. Kids and their grown-ups will love this book!"
—Jolanta Scott-Parker, Executive Director, Canadian Federation of Sexual Health
"Cory Silverberg's What Makes a Baby offers a combination so rarely captured in children's books; beauty and meaning, fact and nuance, and most importantly the opportunity for all of us to see ourselves in these pages. A book explaining pregnancy and childbirth that accounts for the wonderfully diverse ways babies are made is a gift."
—Nadya Burton, PhD, Midwifery Education Program at Ryerson University
“The book talks about where babies come from in a way that encompasses kids who are adopted, conceived using reproductive technologies, through surrogacy, or the old-fashioned way, and regardless of how many people were involved, their orientation, gender, and other identity, or family composition. Author and sex educator Silverberg nails it, as does award-winning Canadian artist Fiona Smyth, who illustrated the book.”
