Told through rhyming text, the book emphasizes God's plan for marriage to be between one man and one woman. After they are married, God blesses them with children in order to fill the earth with joy.
Katrina DeMoreta provided whimsical illustrations bursting with color. The characters are presented in expressive, cartoon-like style.
What I Like: The illustrations are great. Honestly, the cover shown doesn't do them justice. They're bright and playful. The author provided some Bible references in the introductory note, which is nice.
What I Dislike: The book's purpose is not clear. Is it trying to discuss where babies come from? Or to defend traditional marriage? If the later, then I suppose it succeeded as a very basic introduction for young audiences, but if the child is exposed to alternative relationships and lifestyles, there really is no explanation or argument toward following traditional, biblical models. If the former, however, it completely missed the mark. It presents an almost mystical answer, one that only prompts more questions, especially if the child (reader) has ever met anyone who isn't married but is a parent. I really hate giving low ratings. I can see this book having great potential, but, unfortunately, the delivery falls far short. It needs a clear purpose.
Overall Rating: Ho-Hum.
Age Appeal: Not provided by the author or publisher, but I would say 3-5.
