Book Review: The Baby Tree

Sophie Blackall’s whimsical illustrations depict the euphemisms and partial answers that adults often use to avoid answering the question, “Where do babies come from?” This sweet and simple story will allow any adult who works with children to approach a child’s curiosity about human reproduction in a nurturing and age-appropriate way. The last page of the book includes sample questions and answers that may be especially valuable for adults who sincerely want to answer a child’s questions but are searching for the right words.
