Summary
"Mom, where do babies come from?" Many parents live in fear of the day their child asks that question-which inevitably happens, often as early as the preschool years. Here is a picture book designed especially for young children who are becoming sexually aware but aren't ready to learn about sexual intercourse. Written with warmth and honesty, Amazing You! presents clear and age-appropriate information about reproduction, birth, and the difference between girls' and boys' bodies. Lynne Cravath's whimsical illustrations enliven the text, making this a book that parents will gladly share with their young ones.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "PreS-Gr. 2. This upbeat picture book, illustrated with sunny cartoon drawings, introduces kids to basic reproductive physiology. Saltz offers simple, accessible definitions of terms, accompanied by pictures of unclothed kids and labeled diagrams of internal organs. Subsequent drawings show three stages of body development from baby to young adult, followed by an abbreviated explanation, illustrated with a heart-shaped drawing of a smiling egg and sperm, of reproduction: When a man and a woman love each other and decide that they want to have a baby, a man's sperm joins with a woman's egg. From the egg and sperm, a baby will grow. The book is more specific about birth: The baby will come out of the mother's vagina, which is very, very stretchy. Saltz presents the information clearly in a cheerful, positive tone, encouraging kids to learn about their private parts and reassuring them that curiosity and touching themselves (in private) is natural. For a slightly older audience, Dori Hillestad Butler's exemplary picture book My Mom's Having a Baby (2005) explains the facts of life in more detail. --Gillian Engberg Copyright 2005 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Amazing You! Getting Smart About Your Private Parts by Dr. Gail Saltz, illus. by Lynne Cravath, begins with a note to parents, then asks young readers to "Take a good look at yourself in the mirror. What do you see?" Beginning with "Head, arms, hand, legs, and feet," the narrative then progresses to "private parts," calling them by their nicknames and then getting serious about the function of the uterus and penis-tactfully skirting details about intercourse ("When a man and a woman love each other and decide that they want to make a baby, a man's sperm joins with a woman's egg").
