The Spark of Life

by Margaret Warner Morley

Description:  While Molly and Johnny are gardening or puttering around the yard, they wonder again and again how new life arises. The questions they ask lead to lively conversations with their parents about the manner of reproduction of a variety of plants and animals, beginning with flowers and vegetables, then moving through butterflies, fish, and birds before ending with kittens. In a gentle way lays the foundation for a subsequent discussion of human reproduction.
