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

author: Robie H. Harris
illustrator: Michael Emberley

series name:
The Family Library

How does a baby begin and how is it born? How did I begin? Why are some parts of kidsí bodies different from some parts of other kidsí bodies? Most younger kids have questions about reproduction, babies, love, sex, and gender, too. Some also have concerns. For over twenty years, Itís So Amazing! has provided children age seven and up with the honest answers theyíre looking for through age-appropriate, reassuring words and accurate, up-to-date, inclusive art. Throughout the book, two cartoon characters, Bird and Bee, are the voices of kids. They talk together to help children feel that they are not the only ones wondering how we all began. Rigorously vetted by experts and featuring updated and new facts on pregnancy, birth, adoption, bodies, sexuality, gender identity, OK touches, not OK touches, straight and LGBTQ+ families and people, and many other topics, this comprehensive resource for kids, parents, librarians, teachers, booksellers, and healthcare providers is the book that can help younger kids and their families talk together and find answers to their many questions.

From the trusted team of Robie H. Harris and Michael Emberley, a classic resource for younger children receives its most ambitiously updated edition yet.
