Animals Mate: A Book About Where Babies Come From by Emily Farranto


This is kind of like the birds and the bees equivalent of EVERYBODY POOPS. It introduces the topic of reproduction for the elementary-age set, but does so in a way that is light on the details and strictly factual. It's pretty spare in terms of narration and honestly, this isn't really fun bedtime reading. It's more of a coming of age book you give a kid before setting them down for a Talk. I do like the line drawings of the animals (SUPER CUTE!), which for me is a big part of how I rate kids' books, but this really isn't all that, uh, entertaining. This is, as I said, more of a sort of visual aid/learning tool than a book.

Thanks to the publisher for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review!

2.5 out of 5 stars
