Wordless Wednesday: Where Willy Went

iBean, at 6 months, is just as in love with books as her oldest brother was.  Keesadilla likes books, but has never been as enamoured with them as Sashimi and her.

Tony came home from the library last week with a new book: Where Willy Went: The BIG Story of a Little Sperm. I thought it was a joke, but it isn't.  Honestly, it is a great book for kids around Sashimi's age who cannot stop asking questions and want the real deal, not some story about a stork or a cabbage patch.  Sashimi already knows about sperm and eggs and how the whole thing works, so this book did not really add anything other than great humour and funny pictures.  But we have read it at least once a day since we borrowed it just the same :)

**I realize this is NOT wordless, as the title claims it to be. FAIL! but I had too many people ask me about this book to leave you hanging.  Sorry for the Epic Fail.


  1. Oh my word. Too funny! I'm not quite sure I'm willing to have it in my house, but it would be fun to read I'm sure!

  2. Love the photo. Good on you for encourage literacy at every age! Happy WW!
    Have a great week!


  3. Krista: When Tony first brough it home, I was skeptical. After reading it, though, and having had to explain things to Sacha when Ivy was born (there are SO many questions that arise out of a NICU baby), I thought it was ok. I would say it is probably for early elementary-aged kids, but Sacha tends to be exceptionally bright when it comes to the sciences. For instance, today he asked why I couldn't reheat my breastmilk in the microwave. I told him it kills all the good stuff that I pass on to Ivy, and he said "Like antibodies and vitamins?"

  4. Um.... WORDLESS Wednesday.

  5. Yeah Yeah. I just added an addendum just for you.

  6. This pleases me :)
