Growing Up: The Story of How We Become Alive, Are Born, and Grow Up, by Karl De Schweinitz.

This was published in 1929 and surprisingly, it provides rather specific information to the questioning child about human eggs, sperm, who provides what, and even exactly how the two are joined.

There is a lot of buildup concerning the animal kingdom as well.

Many very nice photos and diagrams in black and white throughout.

111 clean, strongly bound pages. Published by the MacMillan Company.

Additional policies

During sales or special offers, you MUST enter the coupon code at time of purchase. Sorry, discounts are not given retroactively.

We are happy to place an item on RESERVE, if a buyer wishes to save it and purchase at a later specified date (no more than ONE WEEK in the future). When a reserve is placed, buyer promises not to UN-RESERVE it.

Please understand that we cannot prevent another buyer from disregarding the RESERVE and clicking "purchase" anyway. To prevent this disappointing outcome, we recommend you buy the item and click "pay by check." Then communicate when you will have sufficient funds to pay (either by paypal, credit card or check), and the item will be saved specifically for you for a period of not more than one week.
