I got this book as a part of the Kickstarter campaign. When it arrived, I was pregnant with my donor conceived baby girl and read it to her several times through the belly. As a single mom by choice, it is important to me that I have a book that's inclusive of her path into this world and into my life. I love that it allows for me to tell her her unique conception and birth story (when she's old enough), and is NOT a series of "ways" adults can bring babies into the world. As a social justice educator, I am also impressed with how gender isn't emphasized: the figures are gender-neutral in shape and colors are not gender-specific (i.e. the moms/women aren't all pink), and this book is also very inclusive of LGBT families. This truly does work for ALL families and I'm looking forward to reading it to my girl when she's out of infancy. (I did read this to my nine and five year old nieces -- they both liked it a lot especially the younger one, and it led to a discussion of both their births (to a straight married couple) and how I wanted my birth to go; so this is a book that sparks bonding, self-awareness, and conversation!)April 2015: I started reading this book to my girl when she was almost 2. She LOVES it and it is one of her favorite books. She even came up with a sign for uterus -- she holds her arms up like fallopian tubes and balls her fists into ovaries. When she sees pregnant mamas she says, "She has a baby in her uterus!" Everyone thinks it's adorable, and I like that she knows babies don't grow in your tummy. When we get to the uterus page, I point to the ovaries, and say "These are ovaries and this is where the eggs are. When sperm comes into the uterus, and there's an egg in the uterus, sometimes they get together and become a baby.
