Geared to readers from preschool to age eight, "What Makes a Baby"is a book for every kind of family and every kind of kid. It is a twenty-first century children s picture book about conception, gestation, and birth, which reflects the reality of our modern time by being inclusive of all kinds of kids, adults, and families, regardless of how many people were involved, their orientation, gender and other identity, or family composition. Just as important, the story doesn t gender people or body parts, so most parents and families will find that it leaves room for them to educate their child without having to erase their own experience.
Written by sexuality educator Cory Silverberg, and illustrated by award-winning Canadian artist Fiona Smyth, "What Makes a Baby"is as fun to look at as it is useful to read."

Originating as a Kickstarter project in 2012, Silverberg and Smyth’s guide to babies and birth is as notable for what isn’t in it as what is: sperm, eggs, midwives, and cesareans are mentioned, but references to mothers, fathers, boys, or girls are absent, allowing the book to be used by families with a variety of configurations and circumstances. Smyth’s cartoons recall the work of Todd Parr, with a bright crayon-box palette. Silverberg’s writing is informative yet sufficiently general to let adults tailor the accompanying conversations as needed (“When grown ups want to make a baby they need to get an egg from one body and sperm from another body”). A useful springboard for conversations about childbirth, no matter the family. Ages 2–6. (May)
