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.
Written by acclaimed human sexuality educator and author Deborah Roffman, MS, and illustrated by award-winning illustrator John Skews, The Science of Babies is truly revolutionary in its approach.
We at Birdhouse Kids are incredibly excited to publish this new book title. We truly believe it is our most important project to date!
Meet the author - Deborah Roffman
Deborah Roffman, MS, is an award-winning, nationally certified Human Sexuality Educator who’s been teaching children and teens and guiding families and schools across the U.S. for decades. Unrelenting in her dedication to supporting children’s and adolescents’ healthy sexual development, she’s the author of three acclaimed books for parents and teachers, including Talk to Me First and But How'd I Get In There In The First Place?
“It’s really worthwhile for parents and teachers to pause from time to time to look out at the world through the eyes of children. Infants and toddlers, for example, experience their physical selves very differently from older children and adults. Their bodies, acutely present and in a state of perpetual motion and change, continually deliver reams and reams of new data, all of it information that kick starts a child’s earliest learnings. In other words, for the youngest of our children, the body is literally their very first classroom outside the womb, and their primary source of fascination and curiosity.”
