How God Makes Babies

How God Makes Babies by Jim Burns
(information from the BethanyHouse website)

Laying the Foundations for Healthy Sexuality
An Age-Appropriate Resource for Ages 6 to 9

Children's curiosity often prompts them to ask questions you, as a parent, don't feel ready or able to answer. But it doesn't have to be that way. Dr. Jim Burns, family expert and award-winning author, offers a valuable resource for those uncomfortable--even dreaded--conversations.

With biblical, age-appropriate information and illustrations, How God Makes Babies introduces children ages 6 to 9 to the basics of human sexuality. Answering the question of where babies come from, it also emphasizes how children are a part of God's wonderful plan for families.

Though not always easy, opening this discussion early helps you lay a solid, godly foundation in your children's lives. By reading this book together, you are giving your children the tools they will need throughout their lives to make God-honoring decisions about their bodies, their self-image, and their relationships. Don't wait until it's too late. A life of purity can begin today.

Jim Burns founded the ministry of HomeWord in 1985 with the goal of bringing help and hope to struggling families. As host of the national radio broadcast HomeWord with Jim Burns, Jim's passion is to build God-honoring families through communicating practical truths that will enable adults and young people alike to live out their Christian faith. In addition to the radio program, Jim speaks to thousands around the world each year through seminars and conferences. He is also senior director of the HomeWord Center for Youth and Family at Azusa Pacific University and an award-winning author, whose books include Creating an Intimate Marriage, Teaching Your Children Healthy Sexuality and Confident Parenting. He has been featured through numerous media outlets including CNN, ABC, Focus on the Family, and Library Journal. Jim and his wife, Cathy, have three grown daughters and live in Southern California.

How God Makes Babies is a fabulous book. It is written with clear, easily understood, age-appropriate language. If the thought of talking to your kids about how babies are made freaks you out (like it does me) than THIS is the book for you!

Despite the cringing feeling in my stomach I read this book to my two sons - ages 6 & 7. They both understood it and it was the perfect way for me to teach them about this subject. Personally I appreciated the note to parents at the beginning of the book. It helped me to understand why I even needed to bring the subject up with my kids.
