Boobies | Nancy Vo
3 posts | 1 read | 1 to read
Finalist, CCBC Marilyn Baillie Picture Book Award A cheeky celebration of boobies! You have just opened a book about boobies. Meet the Blue-footed Booby, who does not have any boobies at all, since only mammals have boobies. We learn that mammals have boobies to feed babies even though milk can also come from plants. And did you know that boobies, or breasts, vary from person to person, that boobies change over time, and that different animals have different numbers of boobies? Witty and wide-ranging, this eye-opening picture book goes on to explore connections between boobies and mountains, boobies and ancient art and, of course, boobies and you! Nancy Vos latest creation is fresh and funny, while serving up just the right amount of fact. Punchy prose is complemented by striking stencil art in a retro palette, making this the perfect gift for curious young children, older children getting to know their bodies, and anyone ready to boldly celebrate boobies!

A funny informative science book for young children about a mammalian body part that isn‘t often discussed at this age. Bright stencil artwork & witty puns keep the tone light while conveying simple biological facts. I was pleased to note that gender isn‘t mentioned at all. The topic expands to historic representation of boobies in art & mountains named for breasts before ending on a celebratory note. #Canadian #kidlit

marleed Haha! My 3 yo boy-girl twins are obsessed with boobies. They ask me what‘s the sense of mine when their baby brother Sparky can‘t use them as a food source like he does their mama‘s boobies. LOL! My (edited) 4mo

Look! Humans have carved boobies out of stone and wood for more than 25,000 years.

Most mammals have boobies in pairs — that is, in sets of two. But opossums have thirteen boobies. That‘s odd.

LeahBergen What great illustrations! 4mo
Lindy @LeahBergen Yes! Nancy Vo used stencils and acrylic paint to create them. 4mo
