A young child's first introduction to human reproduction. How Did I Begin? is a warm, friendly look at the facts of life for young children that follows the story of a new life from the moment of conception to the birth of a new baby.
If you choose to share 'the facts of life' with children at a young age, this is the perfect book to do so. It gently guides the reader through each stage of a child's development within the womb with charming illustrations and simple explanations, inviting lots of discussion and providing answers to all those questions. Shortlisted for the Junior Science Book Award (now the Royal Society's Science Prize).
