Second Book Giveaway: “What Makes a Baby”

whatmakesababy_200

Congratulations to Stacy, who won a copy of What Makes a Baby earlier this week. Here’s a second chance to win Cory Silverberg’s picture book that explains human reproduction in a way that works for all families.

Details of the book are at my first giveaway post; suffice it to say that no matter how you created your family, and no matter your gender identity, the book includes you. It does this by focusing on the key part of human reproduction—the meeting of egg and sperm—and leaving plenty of room for parents to shape the telling of how that happens. (If you need some suggestions on how to do so, Silverberg, a certified sexuality educator, has written a very useful Reader’s Guide. You can download it free at his Web site.)

I’m leaving the contest open through the weekend this time. Hope you’ll enter for a chance to win.

The Prize

A copy of What Makes a Baby, signed by Cory Silverberg.

The Giveaway

Leave a comment below listing some of the people who helped you create your family, biologically or through emotional or other support. (Not personal names, just role/title, e.g., “our sperm donor,” “our OB/GYN,” “our child’s birth parents.”)

I will randomly select the winner from all comments received before 11:59 p.m. ET, May 19, 2013.

Additional Rules and Restrictions

U.S. residents only, please. One entry per person. Don’t worry if your comment is moderated; once I approve it, it will appear based on the time you submitted it. Spam comments, including off-topic or commercial comments, will not count. If you win any one of the drawings for this book, you cannot play again for this book. (You can leave a comment to participate in the discussion, but I won’t enter you in the drawing.) If you are or have been a paying advertiser (or an employee of a paying advertiser) on Mombian, you can’t play.

You must also leave a valid e-mail address with your comment. Don’t leave a postal address, though. If you win, I’ll contact you by e-mail about shipping. I will then share the winner’s name and postal address with the author, for the sole purpose of allowing him to mail you your prize directly.
