Well the Universe is obviously out to get me because after enduring 'The Talk' the book arrived Monday - 3 days later. I am glad to report that it is a hit!
Mr. C said, "This is my favorite book you ever got me. It tells me everything I wanted to know." I am not surprised that my little brainiac is an aspiring M.D. but I wasn't envisioning gynecology as his specialty of choice.
The book arrives and he digs right in. Notice the shipping paper on the couch behind him.
Why yes he did take the book outside with him to continue on in his reading. You guessed right again that is sperm and egg caricatures that go on to become a zygote.
This book really does tell them the whole story. It covers other issues too like all kinds of different families and okay touch and not okay touch. Big Sis who is 10 was just as interested in the book and took her turn at reading it as well. She did not feel that the labeling of body parts was appropriate. I said, "well if no one tells a 6 and 7 year old what the names of those parts are how would they know?" She said, "still".
So there you have the Loo Loo review. The 7 year old is ready to head off to medical school, the 10 year old doesn't approve of the books complete honesty and the 6 year old took one look at the book and was not interested. She moved on to her leapster.
