Where You Came From by Sara O’Leary and Julie Morstad

Like most kids, Henry has lots of questions. And, like most kids, one question that is often on his mind is: “Where did I come from?”

Unlike Henry, however, most kids don’t have parents who are half as creative or playful as his are in their answers — particularly when these are also accompanied by the most whimsically beautiful illustrations. For little ones who are obviously not old enough for the birds and the bees talk, nor Sophie Blackall’s excellent blend of factual explanation and humour, The Baby Tree, this sweetly heartwarming book is pitched perfectly to satisfy their curiosity, while preserving their imagination with a dash of magic and dreamy whimsy.

Of course, it’s possible to explain the various mysteries of life to kids in your own words — albeit less eloquently — but, in this case, I think it’s best to leave it to the pros.
