Help Make a Book about What Makes a Baby!
Dear parent: are you in for a surprise. If you have ever read a ‘where do babies come from’ book to your young child and cringed everytime you get to the explanation “daddy puts his seed in mommy because they love each other”, you are in for a long-awaited treat.
What Makes a Baby is a children’s picture book about where babies come from that is totally unique and unlike any other because it’s written and illustrated to include all kinds of kids, all kinds of adults, and all kinds of families.
Geared to readers from pre-school to about 8 years old, it teaches curious kids about conception, gestation, and birth in a way that works regardless of whether or not the kid in question was adopted, conceived using reproductive technologies at home or in a clinic, through surrogacy, or the old fashioned way (you know, with two people and some sexual intercourse). And it fits for all families regardless of how many people are involved, their orientation, gender and other identity.
Best of all, it’s being lovingly produced in the spirit of classic books like Where Did I Come From? as a full color, hard cover picture book, one that kids and parents will want to pick up and read.
The thing is, the author, Cory Silverberg, needs your help to get it published. He’s set up a Kickstarter page where you can donate/become a backer, watch a video about the project, and follow the progress of this fantastic book. Do it now!
