Skipping the sensitive fertilization stage, this book begins with the fertilized egg, then traces the development of the baby through birth. Colorful, appealing illustrations provide visual explanations along with the text which is primarily in a conversation format. Scientific aspects of development are explained extremely well for children at elementary levels—solid science, but not too complicated. The baby is described throughout as God's special creation, and the pro-life message is emphasized at the end of the book in a discussion about children born with defects. Parker goes one step further to include some explanations about aspects of development that are often construed by evolutionists as evidence for evolution. The only negative about this book is that it is a little difficult to read it aloud since it's written as a conversation between three or more people. My suggestion to turn this negative into a positive is to get the whole family, including dad, involved in the reading.
