First in the “Let's Talk About You and Me" series.
Young children are curious about almost everything. Asking questions is one of many ways they learn about themselves and the world around them. Now, this unique series for our youngest children provides easy-to-understand facts and answers to their delightful, thoughtful, and often nonstop questions. Launching the series is WHO HAS WHAT?, a simple story following Nellie and Gus on a family outing to the beach. Humorous illustrations, conversations between the siblings, and a clear text all reassure young kids that whether they have a girl’s body or a boy’s, their bodies are perfectly normal, healthy, and wonderful. Authoring the series is Robie H. Harris, whose nonfiction books are known as the source for addressing kids’ questions about themselves, their families, and their friends. Nadine Bernard Westcott’s accurate and entertaining illustrations offer an inviting way for children to discover straightforward, fascinating information about themselves.
Robie H. Harris is the author of the much-acclaimed Family Library series. While working on Who Has What? she consulted parents, grandparents, educators, librarians, child development specialists, health professionals, and clergy to make sure that the information and illustrations answer young children’s questions about themselves in an appropriate and honest manner. Robie H. Harris lives in Massachusetts.
Nadine Bernard Westcott is the illustrator of more than fifty books, including Supermarket! and Up, Down, and Around. She lives in Massachusetts.
The book serves as a great way to introduce male and female body parts for anyone not used to discussing or naming them.
—School Library Journal (starred review)
Harris' tone is cheerful and confident... Westcott's bright digital illustrations keep the affair as breezy and non-shocking as possible — just as it should be. Expect the usual outcry, as well as the usual demand.

This much-needed title stands out for its comfortably familiar presentation of material adults sometime find difficult to share with young children.
