Publisher Comments:

"An outstanding book. . . . Meets the needs of those in-between or curious kids who are not ready, developmentally or emotionally, for Its Perfectly Normal." —Booklist (starred review)

How does a baby begin? What makes a baby male or female? How is a baby born? Children have plenty of questions about reproduction and babies—and about sex and sexuality, too. Its So Amazing! provides the answers—with fun, accurate, comic-book-style artwork and a clear, lively text that reflects the interests of children age seven and up in how things work, while giving them a healthy understanding of their bodies. Created by the author and illustrator of Its Perfectly Normal, this forthright and funny book has been newly updated for its fifteenth anniversary.

Synopsis:

Robie H. Harris says, "My challenge in writing IT'S SO AMAZING! was to weave the fascinating and complicated science facts about reproduction and birth into the story of the egg and the sperm, and to communicate to children in an honest and simple way how amazing this story really is!"

Michael Emberley says that while creating the illustrations for IT'S SO AMAZING!, he "tried to delicately balance age-appropriateness, absolute accuracy, honesty, and just plain fun."

JWallis, February 16, 2015 (view all comments by JWallis)
My 8 & 4 year olds love this book. It explains really complicated stuff about bodies, development, pregnancy, etc, all in an easily digestible, non-judging and fun way.

The drawings are great; cartoony and friendly, they helped my 4yo follow the conversation and my 8yo get comfortable with the topics. The first few times we read it both girls did a lot of "ew"ing but then the 8yo started asking her own questions, talking about her own body and on our next visit to Powell's asked for the next level up (Its Perfectly Normal).

Our 8yo now wants to give this to all her friends for their birthdays.
