What Makes a Baby is a children’s picture book about where babies come from that is written and illustrated to include all kinds of kids, all kinds of adults, and all kinds of families.
Geared to readers from pre-school to about 8 years old, it teaches curious kids about conception, gestation, and birth in a way that works regardless of whether or not the kid in question was adopted, conceived using reproductive technologies at home or in a clinic, through surrogacy, or the old fashioned way (you know, with two people and some sexual intercourse). And it fits for all families regardless of how many people are involved, their orientation, gender and other identity.
Best of all, it’s being lovingly produced in the spirit of classic books like Where Did I Come From? as a full colour, hard cover picture book, one that kids and parents will want to pick up and read.
You can learn more about how What Makes a Baby came to be by watching the video below.
What Makes a Baby will be published in June, 2012. The first books will be going to our backers who helped fund the publishing through our Kickstarter campaign.
Once the Kickstarter backers have their books, we’ll be able to start wider distribution.
In June we’ll be re-launching this website and you’ll be able to order books, find out about workshops and events in your community, and access the free Parent Reader Guide.
