Where do babies come from? It’s an inevitable question, especially when you’re adding to your family or when your children have friends who are getting new little brothers and sisters. The new book, The Baby Tree by Sophie Blackall covers this topic well, in a way that is totally stress-free. It’s silly, it’s cute and superbly illustrated. Emma and Ryan were both fully engaged when I read the book to them.
I love how the children in this video share their thoughts on the subject. Too stinkin’ adorable! Here’s what Emma (and Ryan) had to say about the matter. She really liked the idea of babies somehow growing on trees!
