Where do babies come from? This is a question most parents will get asked someday.
But Where do babies come from? and Where do I come from? are two different questions points out Cory Silverberg, a sex educator from Toronto. And for an increasing number of families — for example those with babies conceived through IVF or adopted — Where do I come from? does not always have a simple answer.
This is why Silverberg has teamed up with Canadian illustrator Fiona Smyth to create a book that is inclusive in the way it answers the question of what makes a baby. It's unique because it doesn't leave anyone out.
Here's how they describe it on their Kickstarter page:
You can preorder the book on the Kickstarter page for $25 (e-book version is available for a $10 pledge), or you can contribute more and get some great stuff in return. For instance, for $500 you can get an original "pop portrait" of whomever you like by Smyth. These are super cute.
I love the enthusiasm, the creativity and the awesomeness that is bringing this book to the world.
Would you buy this book for your child?
