I know some of us lurk in July's ddc, but for those that missed it, this is creepy yet funny...

Hehe, WOW!

On a side note, it's too bad that they show the mama laying flat on her back in the hospital with two men towering over her (ugh).

I'm with Jenmidwife - don't like the birthing scene at ALL... but the rest of it was... um, funny. Don't think I'd get it for my little kids, but at least it isn't the stork eh?

Oh my! That's not just a German book. My parents had that book around when I was a kid to help us learn about sex and how babies are made!!!! I haven't seen those illustrations in DECADES.

FWIW, it was very simple and informative for me as a child . . . not at all creepy or disturbing. It is too bad mama is shown giving birth on her back, though.

Gosh, that really takes me back some years!

LOL. I've gotta show that to my hubby.

I agree, the birth scene is bad--flat on her back w/ doc and hubby standing over her. But at least the doc is only holding a stethoscope and isn't doing anything to her....looks like the baby is credited w/ her own birth!
