Did The Sun Shine Before You Were Born? is written mainly for children aged 3 to 7. Although primarily intended to be read aloud by a parent, it has also been written and designed for use with the beginning reader in mind.
The book focuses on the family and how it grows, because young children are intensely curious about their relationship to it. The illustrations show a wide variety of family situations to stimulate a child's awareness and acceptance of differences in lifestyles and cultures. This sharing of values and ideas will help parent and child communicate better with each other.
Did The Sun Shine Before You Were Born? does not try to give all the answers about sex and the family to every child, nor does it presume to make choices or determine attitudes for parent and child. It is intended to be an open, comfortable book that provides a simple framework of important information without prejudicing individual growth.
