It's so Amazing! by Robie Harris

Harris, R. (1999). It’s so Amazing. Boston, MA: Candlewick Press.

This book is full of "amazing" information. If you need a way of explaining where babies come from, this is definitely the book for you. There are illustrations and scientific facts that can help you to have "the talk" with your teenager. What makes this book very kid friendly is the bird and the bee that guides the reader through all the tough information and scientific facts that may be harder to understand.

Robie Harris, author of It's So Amazing! A Book about Eggs, Sperm, Birth, Babies and Families produced a great example of the evaluative criteria of organization. She wrote her book in sections and provided a table of contents so the reader can easily locate information. Each section is appropriately titled. There is a clear sequence of information and is very easy to use. The illustrations in the book add a great deal of important facts and help to organize the authors thoughts on a very broad and lengthy subject such as the beginning of life.
