From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2-- Although this picture book is catalogued as nonfiction, there is virtually no information in it. A young boy tells the story of how he came to be, beginning with his parents meeting and falling in love. Courtship finds them cuddling on a park bench and talking on the phone. As newlyweds, they are shown playing footsies at the breakfast table and taking bubble baths together. Their delight in the pregnancy is evident; labor, birth, and nursing are mentioned but not described. The narrative ends rather abruptly with the family deciding that the baby has ``Dad's nose, Mom's eyes, Grandpa's ears, and Grandma's hands . . .'' The final double-page spread depicts fetal development from conception to 34 weeks, with a standard cutaway view of the baby in the uterus. Throughout, Wabbes's dreamy, vague pencil drawings with watercolor washes convey a warm and loving feeling. The sketchy style is less effective in the drawings of the developing fetus because they are so indistinct. Abby Levine's What Did Mommy Do Before You? (Whitman, 1988) uses a similar approach; it covers the mother's life from birth to childbirth. For an excellent factual look at pregnancy and birth, try Joanna Cole's How You Were Born (Morrow, 1984). --Lucy Young Clem, Evansville Vanderburgh County Public Library, IN
