So sometimes you get questions about where babies come from and the kids asking these questions are a bit too young for the birds and the bees talk so you have to get creative about your answers.

This is that story.

Sometimes It”s Storks is about a baby who is sent out to his family on a stork and is somehow misplaced (the stork does a bum job). He has a host of adventures before ending up with his family. Some of the adventures are just a tiny bit hair raising as the baby finds himself in dire straits–he even ends up in a zoo on the wrong side of the bars if you know what I mean.

But he ultimately has a happy ending.

The art is interesting and I liked it; blue babies are fun. Some people may not like it; it’s very much a matter of taste. I think kids will enjoy this. Recommended.
