Summaries and Reviews
Detailed illustrations accompany a warm, simple explanation of the development of human life from a single cell to birth, a time we are reminded of by our bellybuttons, through which we once drew nutrients, water, and oxygen. description: Product Description:
Everybody has a bellybutton, but what is its purpose? Award-winning author Laurence Pringle provides the answer in this unique angle on life from a single cell to birth. Pringle explains how the bellybutton is a vital link to life-giving-nutrients, water, and oxygen for a fetus in the womb. Everybody's bellybutton is a reminder of that mysterious, yet wonderful, time of life before birth. Enhanced by Clare Wood's strikingly detailed illustrations, Pringle's gentle description of life in the womb is both understandable and enjoyable for young children. A note to parents and a book list for further reading are included.
