Every child needs to see this series.
10 April 2000 | by (Auckland, NZ) – See all my reviews

By the time you have seen all 7 of these films you will know more about your body than you could have imagined, most of it fascinating stuff. This series is worth watching just for the occasional magic moments, like the babies in the swimming pool and the pregnant woman getting magically larger before our eyes! If you are a parent you need to watch this series with your kids. You'll all be better for the experience and it will give plenty of opportunity for discussion after. I can't recommend this too highly. Find it!
