It's So Amazing!
A Book about Eggs, Sperm, Birth, Babies, and Families

author: Robie H. Harris
illustrator: Michael Emberley

The Family Library

How does a baby begin? What makes a baby male or female? How is a baby born? Children have plenty of questions about reproduction and babies ó and about sex and sexuality, too. Itís So Amazing! provides the answers ó with fun, accurate, comic-book-style artwork and a clear, lively text that reflects the interests of children age seven and up in how things work, while giving them a healthy understanding of their bodies. Created by the author and illustrator of Itís Perfectly Normal, this forthright and funny book has been updated for its fifteenth anniversary.

ďAn outstanding book. . . . Meets the needs of those in-between or curious kids who are not ready, developmentally or emotionally, for Itís Perfectly Normal.Ē óBooklist (starred review)
