The Baby Tree

Sophie Blackall. Penguin/Nancy Paulsen Bks.

K-Gr 2–After asking the mailman, his teacher, Grandpa, and other grown-ups, a little boy receives some comically suspect explanations about where babies come from. Some bits are true (“they come from a seed,” “they come from the hospital”), and Blackall’s illustrations depicting the boy’s literal imaginings will elicit chuckles from kids and parents alike. A charming introduction to the birds and the bees.
