If your child hasn’t already asked “Where do babies come from?,” they will! My husband and I have always been honest with our kids but tend to provide enough information that would help them make sense of the question in an age-appropriate way. It’s not always easy to come up with an answer that will satisfy curious minds on a whim but parents of young kids no longer have to dread this age-old-question thanks to Sophie Blackall’s beautifully illustrated picture book, The Baby Tree.
The Baby Tree provides just enough information to satisfy the youngest ages thanks to a character that little ones can identify with thanks to his curiosity about the topic. Playful details and fun pictures make this darling book especially helpful for parents of siblings-to-be while helping delay the discussion about the birds and the bees for another day. For an inside look at the book and some fun answers about where my kids think babies come from, take a look at our video review!
I appreciate that The Baby Tree broaches the subject of where babies come from in a way that kids as young as toddlers can understand but does so in a playful way that still provides a bit of truth, without getting into the details that aren’t quite appropriate for young ages. Like many topics, the subject of where babies come from is revisited as kids get older. The Baby Tree provides a great way to start the conversation and reference point to add in details once a child gets older.
