BOOK REVIEW: Where Do Babies Come From?

Updated: May 13, 2020

‘Where Do Babies Come From?’ - Usborne

You can’t go wrong with a lift the flaps book! But seriously, just like most books in the Usborne collection, this one has lovely illustrations, and is laid out in a way that manages to have a lot on each page without feeling cluttered. Each double page spread asks a question (How are babies made? What do babies need?), followed by a simple explanation and then further questions linked to the page title. Each question has a flap to lift to reveal the answer.

Don’t worry, there are no cringey pictures to deal with, and all the questions and answers are very child friendly - definitely a U rating! I would recommend this to anyone wanting to explain where babies come from, and what to expect from a new sibling/cousin, to a child aged 2-9 (ish). With older children it will of course spark other questions so be prepared for that! This is a lovely book to add to your collection, and I want to give it a big thumbs up for hinting at a water birth on the ‘When are babies born?’ page!
