This is a clearly and simply written discussion of human reproduction, designed for children 6 to 10 years of age. The presentation is clear, unsentimental and factual, and the illustrations will be a great help to the child in clarifying his understanding of the text.

From the pediatrician's viewpoint, the book is excellent. It was shown to two mothers of preadolescent children, and both were enthusiastic. In the field of sex education it is undoubtedly one of the best books to appear.
