Where do babies come from? This simple question, asked by almost every inquisitive child at some point, can render the most composed parent, a stammering fool. In itself, that one question isn't so terrible - it's what it signifies: that a sweet, innocent lil one is growing up. This is the moment where parents really wish they had put a little more thought into how this conversation would take place. Will this be a strictly biological discussion? Or will love and marriage play a key role? Some parents will hold tight to the stork scenario until their kid leaves for college. How parents answer this universal situation will differ from family to family - all 5-year-old maturity levels are not created equal, and parents' comfort levels and religious beliefs will also inform the dialog. For the many moms and dads out there who don't feel quite as prepared as they'd like, the following books will help get the conversation started.
