God Made Babies


Justin and Lindsey Holcomb tackle the tough question “Where do babies come from?” in a common sense, biblical way.

This common question all too often leaves parents perplexed about what to say and when to say it. When children ask “where do babies come from?,” they ask because they are curious about where THEY came from. The question is not about sex.

The Holcombs, along with illustrator Trish Mahoney, help parents start the conversation with their children about reproduction by giving them the basic tools to guide them—including specific biblical content and age-appropriate ways of talking to children at different stages. Instead of leaving this conversation to “experts” or to the culture, they equip parents to answer questions about sex in the right way at the right time.

Drawing from the story of creation and how God made the living world to reproduce, God Made Babies helps children to understand the gift of reproduction in the light of God’s goodness and care.

  • From the authors and illustrator of the award-winning God Made All of Me and God Made Me in His Image.
  • Part of the God Made Me Series which equips parents to have important, impactful conversations with their children.
  • Contains a special section for parents and caregivers that provides biblical guidance and offers additional information and resources for conversation.

My thoughts: This is a great resource for parents and care givers! I love how the question is approached for real little kids to learn a simple answer to the question of where babies come from, in a way that can be built upon as they get older and need more specific information. My kids have been fascinated with babies, since we had several join our extended family this year, so this has been the perfect book for us to read together! 
I received a complimentary book from the publisher. This is my honest review.
