The Baby Tree
Written and Illustrated by Sophie Blackall
Age range: 3 and up
A boy wakes up one morning to discover that he will be a big brother-a new baby is coming. The boy’s response, however, is he wants more cocopops. Throughout his day he asks various people where a baby comes from and receives a plethora of responses: a seed from a baby tree, a hospital, an egg, and the classic response from his grandfather-the stork. In the end however, he gets his answer from his parents: a seed from the dad, which gets planted in an egg inside the mom.
