  • Hardback book with Dust Jacket by Sidonie Matsner Gruenberg
  • With Illustrations by Hildegard Woodward
  • Hanover House, Garden City, New York
  • Copyright 1952, 1953 by Doubleday & Companies, Inc.

The top picture is that of the dust jacket front cover.
The two pictures below that are of the front and back book.
We wanted to show those to display some of the nice illustrations that were done on this classic book.

" On the inside of {the dust jacket} Mrs. Gruenberg answers your questions about WHEN and HOW to use this book. "

The dust jacket inside notes state:
" A new, honest, sympathetic unfolding of the mystery that sooner or later puzzles all children ...
revealed so tenderly and naturally that no parent will hesitate to read it to a younger child, or to give the book itself to older children. "

" The wonder and beauty of the real facts are so skillfully presented that every question is answered and the facts clearly explained in a way that creates a healthy, normal attitude toward sex and birth. "

" Read by educators, psychologists and religious leaders, this book has been commended as an outstanding contribution. "

" MRS. SIDONIE METSNER GRUENBERG is one of the most outstanding and beloved leaders in the field of child and parent education.
She has worked with parents in all parts of the country and was for over 25 years Director of the Child Study Association of America, for which she is now {at time of printing} Special Consultant. "

" An important part of Mrs. Gruenberg's vision of THE WONDERFUL STORY OF HOW YOU WERE BORN was that the book should be a truly lovely one for the child to own and enjoy.
The artist, Hildegard Woodward, who has created many beautiful books for children, has happily fulfilled the author's vision.
Children will recognize the combination of tenderness and gaiety and the deep sense of wonder that has made Hildegard Woodward's pictures outstanding in the field of children's book illustrations. "

The book is in very good condition with minor wear to the edges of the cover.
The dust jacket, however, has several small tears and is worn around the edges.
No torn or ripped pages.
No markings or writing.
