When we found out in early 2007 that a little bundle of joy would be joining our family, we headed to the bookstore. Alexander Tsiaras’s lovely coffee table book, From Conception to Birth: A Life Unfolds, came back home with us. I loved pouring over the graphically enhanced photographs of babies in the womb, imagining how my own little one was developing. Now that he is almost a year old, I still enjoy it. (And yet, it looks more painful now, a year gone and the baby no longer inside of me!)

In addition to the gorgeous, full-color illustrations and photographs, there are some well-developed textual descriptions of conception and reproduction. Yet, such writing is tasteful and brief and this book remains a quality coffee table book one can browse at leisure.

I rediscovered this book while unpacking after our international move. Moving is like Christmas! (except never ending…)
