I discovered a really cool project on Kickstarter* a few months ago that I had wrote up a quick post about. The project was for creating and distributing the book, What Makes A Baby by Cory Silverberg and illustrations by artist, Fiona Smyth. Below is a link to the project on Kickstarter.
The project explains to children pre-school to 8+ years how they may have come into this world where other books have left out. They discuss fertility doctors, surrogates, sperm donation, adoption agencies, friend, turkey basters, etc. What a cool project! In this day and age children are conceived in such a variety of ways, what a perfect way to explain to your child how they came into this world.
The What Makes A Baby project not only reached their goal of $9500, but they surpassed it by a large, wonderful amount! Way to go!!!!!
