The other day my 5-year-old daughter came home from school with this book:

It is apparently from a series called "Growing Up Jewish." No we aren't Jewish, but it was fun to read and a pretty cute book. It spurred three big questions from my daughter:

1 - How do babies get into Mommy's tummy?

2 - What is circumcision?

3 - Are we Jewish?

I was able to answer these without too much difficulty to her satisfaction. But then there were more questions:

4 - If we're not Jewish, why do the boys in our family get circumcised?

5 - Do girls get circumcised too?

6 - Are babies born through the Mommy's bellybutton?

7 - Are there really knives in hospitals?

...lots of questions.

Kids ask the best questions! Sometimes it's hard to expain things on their level, but I'm sure you're doing a great job.
