"Now parents can have easy-going, straightforward, and (hopefully) painless discussions with kids about the miracle of birth "--Parents

What Makes a Baby is the Lambda-nominated, bestselling book by the award winning author illustrator team Cory Silverberg and Fiona Smyth that has become the must-have book for parents who want a 21st century approach to talking with children about where babies come from. Translated by New York Times bestselling author and award-winning translator Carolina De Robertis, What Makes a Baby is a children's picture book about where babies come from that is written and illustrated to include all kinds of kids, adults, and families.
It teaches curious kids about conception, gestation, and birth in a way that works regardless of whether or not the kid in question was adopted, conceived using reproductive technologies at home or in a clinic, through surrogacy, or any of the other wondrous ways we make babies these days. It fits 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.
Chosen as one of the Best Books for Kids and Teens by the Canadian Children Book Centre and featured in media from CNN to BuzzFeed, What Makes a Baby is the first in a trilogy that includes the multiple award-winning book Sex Is a Funny Word. It is the first LGBT-inclusive kids book about reproduction published in Spanish in the US.
