    Where Do Babies Come From? (ebook)

    An engaging introduction for very young children to the basic facts of life in a way that is gentle, age-appropriate and accessible.

Research shows that children are learning about sex at an increasingly young age and often from undesirable sources. The Q&A format, with questions posed in the child’s voice and answers starting simply and becoming gradually more in-depth, allows the adult to guide the conversation to a natural and satisfying conclusion. Additional questions at the back of the book allow for further discussion. Where Do Babies Come From? is the first book in the Just Enough series. Other topics in the series will include death, cultural diversity and separation or divorce.

Will this be the story that lands Nicole a job on the news desk? Even while she struggles to solve the case, she wonders if she’ll ever get the recognition she figures she deserves.
