Before I Was Born
Before I Was Born, by Carolyn Nystrom, is designed for ages five to eight. It again emphasizes the creational goodness of our bodies, our existence as men and women, and our sexual organs. This book introduces new topics as well, including the growth and change as boys and girls become men and women and a tactful but direct explanation of sexual intercourse between a husband and wife.
If you are reading with an adopted child, use this opportunity to explain that not every couple will have children. If a baby doesn’t grow in the mother’s womb, the couple might look for a baby or older child to adopt. The birth mother knows that the husband and wife will love their adopted child. This is another way God makes families.
