The Science of Babies

The Science of Babies is the first board book that will help all parents start talking to their kids early about bodies, birth, and families in an inclusive and scientific way.


This fun and beautifully illustrated new board book will provide the perfect way to ease you and your child into those important conversations before the subject becomes taboo. For young children, this topic is simply all about science and how the world really works! Knowing that makes starting early easier and will help you to seamlessly continue the conversation with greater confidence and openness as they grow up.


Written by acclaimed human sexuality educator and author Deborah Roffman, MS, and illustrated by Frank Cable, The Science of Babies is truly revolutionary in its approach. 


The Science of Babies, with its stunning 32 colorful pages (16 spreads) made especially for kids as young as 3.5 years of age, will support all parents and caregivers who want to raise their children with an approach suitable for the times in which we live.

    "Debbie came to my son’s school to speak, and I was immediately hooked on her philosophy and candor! I am forever grateful that I heard her when my children were both under 3, and now, The Science of Babies has given me the words and tools I need to talk about our bodies and the process of new life with confidence.”

    "How lucky are parents and early childhood educators that master teacher Deborah Roffman has written this inclusive, revolutionary board book for our youngest children. Using basic concepts like same/different and inside/outside to teach about people, relationships, eggs, sperm, genitals and birth, she's provided--finally!--the thorough, friendly guide we and children need."
