In the book How Babies Are Made by Andrew C. Andry, it shows how different organisms reproduce; the book starts off by introducing how flowers give offspring.

The females body helps deliver the baby through the vagina. Then the umbilical cord is removed. Just like the puppies the child receives milk from the mothers mammary glands and it receives milk. Then this showed how families are formed.
