'The Baby Tree' Tells Kids Where Babies Come From So Parents Don't Have To

If you break out in a cold sweat just thinking about talking to your kids about where babies come from, you're not alone.

In a trailer for Sophie Blackall's new book, The Baby Tree, it's clear that parents don't straight-shoot when it comes to the birds and the bees. Their explanations about where babies come from range from a cute "mommies grab them from the hay," to the strange "they order them online."

The book takes kids on a hunt -- and through all the silly explanations -- to answer the big question. Unlike the old stork tale, though, Blackall gives a simple, G-rated answer. So, good news parents, you don't have to come up with your own cover story, all you have to do is read! Oh, and take a deep breath while you're at it.
