My 7-year-old daughter had some questions about bodies and babies, so I bought this book based on it''s excellent reviews. I read it alone to review the content, and ultimately decided not too read it to my daughter. I ultimately ended up using her copy of "National Geographic Kids Ultimate Body-Pedia" to show her diagrams of the reproductive system and explained the basics using those (and sonogram pictures from when I was pregnant for her to talk about pregnancy).

"Where Did I Come From" is very cleverly written, and I love it''s description of conception and pregnancy. The description of sex was too graphic and lovey-dovey for what I thought was a good explanation for a seven-year-old with divorced parents. It goes into several pages of descriptions of kissing, thrusting, erections, the male orgasm, and ultimately makes sex sound like a very male-centric act (and always, curiously, in missionary position).

On the bright side, it did let me collect MY thoughts and gave me the confidence to explain things to my kid with the level of detail and context that I felt was appropriate. Yes, it was an awkward conversation, but there were lots of laughs and good questions. We focused more on "this is what happens when an egg and sperm get together and this is actually how it got there" and a discussion about making healthy choices and less on schmoopy descriptions of "what happens when mommies and daddies really love each other".

So my recommendation (if you are like me)? Just listen to your kids questions and answer them. Get the Ultimate Body-Pedia or a similar atlas for kids. Pull out some sonograms. If you really feel like the discussion needs more audio-visuals, pull up some nature videos. Talk about experiences with pregnancy and a few memories on the day your kid was born. Just remember, it can, and should be, an evolving conversation. My kid doesn''t need overwhelming detail in one go. She needs someone to listen and to provide good information as she grows.

Book was delivered in great condition; no issues with the product quality. Probably great for conservative, straight, white families that believe exclusively in monogamy (and believe women always enjoy sex as it is presented in this book).

I remembered this book vaguely from childhood and bought a copy for my kid. VERY DATED INFORMATION that is clearly written by someone far more focused on male genitalia and life experience. Not a judgement - they absolutely did the best with what they knew.

A great and progressive book for the mid-1970’s, but severely lacking for today’s children and families. Not queer-inclusive (how could it be back then?), and not what I was looking for.

I love this book. It opened the door to an easier-than-I-thought-it''d-be conversation for my husband and I to have with our two daughters. For us, the conversations that have stemmed from this book have ranged from puberty and our changing bodies, to pornography (good pictures, bad pictures), to inappropriate touching/looking, to showing affection in a loving relationship.

A friend recommended this to me as I was struggling with a very curious 3rd grade daughter and an extremely modest 5th grade daughter. The two of them knew some general information already, it takes a man and a woman and they need to be naked, but I didn''t know how to explain more of the details of intercourse in a way they would understand but wouldn''t shock them either. I felt like my girls were ready (and needed) to know.

My husband and I read it together with our daughters and it created an important level of confidence and comfort and trust in our relationship and for this topic. It opened the door to NOT EMBARRASSING conversations and further questions my girls had. I think this is an excellent resource to begin the conversation of sex and understanding that intercourse is for a loving relationship and for creating life.

This book explains intercourse in a kid-friendly, yet still accurate way...from an erect penis entering the vagina to ejaculation...then onto fertilization and progression of a fetus to birth. **I especially liked the explanation that when two people love each other they want to be as close to one another as possible, and the man''s penis in the woman''s vagina is as close as you can be.**

So I must say that this book leaves no unanswered questions. As a parent of an 11 y/o female I wanted to make sure that I talked to her about "the birds and the bees" in the best way but still shelter her from the world. The child psychologist side of me wanted to provide my child with concrete, factual information that would open the doors to fostering open communication between my tween and I. With all of that being said, this book was great. FREAKING OUT THE ENTIRE TIME while my kid read me the book aloud. lol Honestly, this book covers everything and is informative. Short, to the point, the pictures are vivid but appropriate. I ordered two books one for the office and one of my house. I recommend for any parent to read this to their child. Read it first to yourself and process it before reading it to your child. REMEMBER: you want your child to get accurate information from you and not the internet!!!!

I read it to my 7&8 yr olds at the same time and despite a bit of chuckling and red faces it was actually very easy, painless, and they now KNOW THE FACTS! This book anticipates that the conversation is awkward and attacks that head on, by acknowledging that it can be difficult and that they went out and asked kids what they knew (or believed) as a major part of the research. It’s illustrated in a very natural and appropriate manner that helps the dialogue and took me an hour to go through, including plenty of Q&A.

Answers the questions! And, it goes beyond sex into baby development. It recognizes that the parent isn''t necessarily comfortable having the conversation, too!

Our kids were 5 & 6 when we read this to them. Both found it enlightening without being weird or uncomfortable. We bring this out for an introductory reading or two, then it gets hidden away until there are future questions.

I had this book as a child and it did cause lots of giggles and jokes for us kids, but I had to get it when I had a baby. While not 100% accurate and definitely not commiserate with today’s types of families, there is some great information about the “birds and the bees.” At the very least, it will stimulate the conversation. And even after all of these years, I remembered the pictures and saw the correlation when I got pregnant.

I got a book to start getting ready for when my 5 year old starts asking "where did I come from?" So I saw this book and went for it. I just received it and my mouth dropped. I cannot show this to my 5 year old. Firstly, they don''t talk about how the baby is formed at all. They talk about penises going up and down into the vagina and how it feels good, kind of like a sneeze. There are three creepy looking guys in the back of the book, the authors, they must not have had children, if they did they wouldn''t have written the book in this way. I hate this book and I''m going to throw it away, after I show it to my husband to see the look of shock on his face. It was a very bad purchase.

A "must have" book for young children. My grandchildren were starting to ask the question "where do I come from?" So I bought the book for my daughter to read to her children. My daughter comments they have great interest and fun in discussing the process with Mum and Dad (as are Mum and Dad!) I think the style of the book allows a sensitive subject to be explored and discussed comfortably by all.
