For parents who want to go beyond the birds and the bees talk, How to Talk to Your Child About Sex provides thoughtful, clear, specific guidance on when and, most important, how to help children begin to learn and understand sex, love, and commitment from the most positive viewpoint possible.

Geared to readers from preschool to age eight, What Makes a Baby is a book for every kind of family and every kind of kid. It is a twenty-first century children’s picture book about conception, gestation, and birth, which reflects the reality of our modern time by being inclusive of all kinds of kids, adults, and families, regardless of how many people were involved, their orientation, gender and other identity, or family composition. Just as important, the story doesn’t gender people or body parts, so most parents and families will find that it leaves room for them to educate their child without having to erase their own experience. Written by a certified sexuality educator, Cory Silverberg, and illustrated by award-winning Canadian artist Fiona Smyth, What Makes a Baby is as fun to look at as it is useful to read.
I fi nally found the time to fi nish the book I had years ago promised my grandson I would write, to tell him how he was born. Every time I started to write, I was confronted by another roadblock. After my bouts with cancer, surgery, chemo, and then more surgery, I just could not get it fi nished. Now, I have been able to get the book in print to fulfi ll my promise to write my grandson an answer to his often-asked question, “Where did I come from, Oma?” I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did writing it, and that you will pass it on to your children and grandchildren, so it can help answer questions they might have on how they were born. I want to thank Nicholas for never giving up on me and for asking the question, which gave me the idea that all children might enjoy the answer. I also need to thank my gynecologist, Dr. Jeff rey B. Frank, affi liated with the Reading Hospital and Medical Center (Reading, Pennsylvania), for proof-reading the accuracy of my details, and my friend Gloria Beidler, who continued to encourage me to get the book fi nished. It is my love of children that kept me writing, to help parents who simply do not know what to say to their children on the subject. Th ank you for taking the time to read this book. Enjoy the story of “Where did I come from, Oma?”
