The Origin and Purpose of Belly Buttons Revealed

front coverDid your children or grandchildren ever ask, “Where do belly buttons come from?” Richmond area pastor, writer, and children’s entertainer, Dr. Jeffery Warren Scott has the perfect answer to that childhood question in his new family-friendly children’s book, “Where Do Belly Buttons Come From?” published by CrossBooks.

The charming children’s book features a story-telling grandfather who weaves a cute and compelling story for his giggling grandchildren. He suggests that belly buttons are actually the fingerprint of God put front and center on our bodies to remind us that we are specially made and especially loved.

Scott observed, “In the difficult times in which we live, it is especially important for parents and grandparents to help children feel loved and valued. Family time reading and talking about a good book helps solidify the parent-child bond and has a lasting impact on reading, vocabulary, reasoning, and academic achievement. After reading this book filled with family, faith and fun, you will never look at belly buttons quite the same. ”

Scott has written numerous articles on families, children, and the church as well as a book several years ago entitled, “Does Your Child’s World Scare You?: Making the World a Better Place for Children.”

“Where Do Belly Buttons Come From?” is available at,, and in both soft cover and ebook editions.
