A CHILD IS BORN by Lennart Nilsson, text by Lars Hamberger (Delta: $17.95; 216 pp.). Lennart Nilsson documents the week-by-week development of human life from conception to birth in a dazzling series of photographs and photomicrographs. These brilliant visuals offer parents an ideal supplement to an explanation of the facts of life. Regrettably, the gushing, upbeat text never approaches the levels of the illustrations: Hamberger devotes too much space to extolling the miracles of creation and too little to explaining the changes the fetus undergoes.
