Kirja-arvosteluja

I loved this book. Gentle and almost refreshing in its simplicity- Jeanne Bendick explains sexual reproduction with enough (but not too much)detail.

This does have some illustrations of male and female reproductive parts in it but they are not overly detailed. It illustrates sexual intimacy but not in a graphic way.

It also shows being pregnant, discusses birth, and nursing.

Overall an excellent option for the gentle introduction of a sensitive topic.

Fantastic book! Part biography of Archimedes, it includes ancient Greek history and culture, a little bit of geography, and a lot of science and math. Some of the math was too technical for my almost 7-year-old, but overall we both really enjoyed this one. I need to get a copy for my shelves.
