She’s a precocious six-year-old dynamo with an outsized curiosity about the world around her. When Clementine finds out she is having a baby brother, she embarks on a journey to learn where babies come from and what it’s like to be a big sister. Along the way, Clementine explores love and birth.
Fun and Educational for Kids Ages 5-12
Each page of the app engages kids with an interactive activity. For example, children learn about conception by leading a group of sperm cells down the fallopian tube until they reach the egg. Kids can visit the baby inside his mother’s womb through different stages of pregnancy. Finally, readers can help mom “push” and the midwife and doctor deliver the baby, even “cutting” the umbilical cord themselves.

Young children are like little engineers. They want to know, “Exactly how does it work?”
The app has just the right mixture of storytelling and scientific facts to provide fun answers to “How did the baby get in there?” and “How will it get out?” It provides factual information for adults and for children. It opens the door to truth-telling and answering questions that will encourage lifelong discussions in families.
Educated children feel more confident, are more willing to talk and ask questions in a more mature manner. They are also much better protected from sexual abuse and exploitation. Some parents believe that innocence protects childhood. In fact, factual, honest education protects it while abuse destroys it. Children who know the facts are much more likely to speak to their parents and disclose problems if they happen.
I like the humour, the honesty and the portrayal of sexual activity as normal. As someone who has taught sexual health to audiences ranging from preschoolers to grandparents for close to forty years, I am sure that you and your child will enjoyWhere Do Babies Come From? as a starter learning tool.
