With my daughter being the mother to a six year old girl, and expecting her second baby in just a couple of months, this book came to us at the perfect time. Our granddaughter has been filled with questions! I found the book a great way to approach the subject, without over-doing it or leaving any questions unanswered. The book is easy to read, and the installations are adorable. I highly recommend this book. Would make a for a great gift.
