The Baby Tree

The Baby Tree

by Sophie Blackall

Sooner or later every child will ask, “Where do babies come from?” This little boy gets lots of different answers at first. His babysitter says you plant a seed that grows into a baby tree. His teacher says they come from the hospital. His grandpa says the stork brings them. And the mailman thinks they come from eggs. How puzzling! Fortunately, his wise parents explain where babies really come from, and he realizes everyone had a little bit of it right. Well, except Grandpa—he will have to be set straight.
Award-winning Sophie Blackall has created a beautiful picture book full of playful details to amuse and engage readers, while cleverly revealing the basics of reproduction in an age-appropriate way. This is the perfect book to help explain where babies come from!
