It's So Amazing!: A Book about Eggs, Sperm, Birth, Babies, and Families (The Family Library) (English Edition) [Print Replica] Format Kindle
“An outstanding book. . . . Meets the needs of those in-between or curious kids who are not ready, developmentally or emotionally, for It’s Perfectly Normal.” —Booklist (starred review)
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—and about sex and sexuality, too. It’s So Amazing! provides the answers—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 It’s Perfectly Normal, this forthright and funny book has been newly updated for its fifteenth anniversary.

Even if your child hasn't reached puberty, talk with him or her about what lies ahead. If you'd like some help, check out the excellent picture book IT'S SO AMAZING! . . . It could help prepare your son or daughter - as well as reassure you.
It's a beauty; it's your privilege to use it. Enough said.
As a pediatrician, I know that children have many questions about reproduction, birth, bodies, babies, and families. Finding the answers, in a comfortable, appropriate, and interesting way, is an essential part of growing up healthy in body and mind. This book provides an opportunity for children to find answers to their questions with clarity of explanation, fabulous illustrations, and humor, together with an all-important sense of wonder.
—Perri Klass, MD, Professor of Journalism and Pediatrics, New York University
A cleverly illustrated guide to everything from adoption to zygotes.
Genuinely sweet, in a genre in which there’s a fairly despicable tendency to be edgy, brash, and cool, as if what kids can put out must be what they need from grownups.…sensible, even existential, answers…honest and tender drawings.
—The New Yorker
[A] friendly and sensitive guide for younger children . . . Harris throughout manages to leave no stone unturned in this thoughtful, intelligent, and most importantly, exuberant celebration of the creation and operation of children and adult bodies . . . Parents looking for a way to keep embarrassment to a minimum when discussing sexuality with their young children will appreciate this book.
—Horn Book, starred review, The
. . . this provides sensible, reassuring answers to readers' questions and concerns, and interrupts the rain of information with occasional silliness.
—Kirkus Reviews, pointered review
Indeed, IT'S SO AMAZING! is written and illustrated with such thought that a child can hide way and study it.
—New York Times, The
Another barrier-breaking contribution by Harris and Emberley that seamlessly bridges IT'S PERFECTLY NORMAL and HAPPY BIRTH DAY! . . . An essential guide that will delight and inform and appeal to young readers as well as adults.
—School Library Journal, starred review
A well-loved tool for many parents, and one that has made 'the talk' more fun and relevant.
Emberley illustrates the rich diversity of bodies in a breathtakingly matter-of-fact way.
It's accurate, non-judgmental and comprehensive, yet there's no danger of information overload because humor is used to leaven the seriousness of the topics presented.
—Syndicated Column - Lynne Burke
Bright, comic-style illustrations featuring a knowledgable bird and an embarrassed bee. . . . Clear subject headings make the text easy to browse.

À propos de l'auteur

Using the cartoon birds was also very helpful, especially when covering the subject of appropriate/not appropriate affection and touching, in a manner that would not confuse or frighten them.
Some years ago I loaned the book to someone who did not return it, so have now purchased it again for my granddaughter's Mum to use it with her and her siblings. I would definitely recommend this book to parents to use with their children.
It also says "sex" is equivalent to gender, which is incorrect. Gender is the presentation of "man or woman / boy or girl", and sex is the biological aspect of "male or female".
At first he just looked at it but wasn’t reading but we made the time and day to read chapter by chapter which works great.
Good for telling our experiences of birth and talking about our own family. Also useful for re-iterating the message why privates are privates!
(Have left the HIV section too when she is a bit older) The cartoon birds make it more lighthearted, which may be needed in some places.
