Whether you have experienced infertility or have been fortunate to not, I’m Very Ferris is a great opportunity to educate your child on the challenges that we face in the world and how with love and science, becoming a parent is possible! Great work!”
“So glad that there’s finally a book on IVF and love that this can be gifted for anything! I love reading I’m very ferris to my son who is 16 months! He enjoys looking at the pictures and pointing at the different characters and knowing them personally is a bonus!”

“A wonderful little story about Ferris – his parents used IVF to conceive him! It’s cute, my kiddos liked it, and it made them understand a little bit more of what I do (I run an IVF practice) going to be watching to see what else is to come from this new author!”
– Melissa P.
“Great book! Tess Kossow does an excellent job introducing the topic of IVF in a way that kids of young ages can easily understand. It outlines a nice and very factual storyline of a family and gives you great knowledge and you really feel for the families out there going through IVF. Highly recommend. ”

“I think it’s so wonderful that people are starting to be more open about their personal lives as so many people can relate. People are able to go through difficult times not feeling completely alone, and I think this openess starts with our children. Raising them to feel comfortable with and to talk about sensitive subjects is so important and that is why it is so wonderful that this beautiful book was created ”
“I’m so thankful to have been introduced to this book! As an infertility advocate, I feel very passionate about spreading awareness and being candid about the struggles and unique journey those battling infertility face – and this book does just that but in the eyes of a child. The illustrations are adorable and the story clearly reflects the process so many find themselves in when trying to conceive. My husband and I can’t wait to share “I’m Very Ferris” with our little IVF babe. BIG kudos to Kossow for writing!!”
“Just wanted to thank you again for the book. It’s absolutely wonderful! I can’t wait to read it with my daughters when they’re a bit older and I can chat with them about how they came to be.”
“I received this book directly from the author at a local event and am so proud of her bringing this subject to the surface. I’m inspired by her story and loved meeting the one and only Ferris. This is a wonderful story that can educate and inspire.”
– Michelle Mansfield
“I am very Ferris is a beautiful story about a little boy that was conceived through In-vitro fertilization (IVF). Ms. Kossow does a wonderful job explaining the story from a child’s perspective. The book is very well illustrated, and my 16 month old daughter loves the pictures.”
– Brenda Rock
“I loved this book, especially because the family resembles my own, with our sweet IVF baby boy! I love how it included a page referencing mommy needed lots of shots and surgery. Sometimes it can be forgotten what an IVF mother goes through to get her miracle baby and this sweet simple one page gesture touched my heart and hopefully IVF babies out there will know how much they were truly wanted. So happy there are books like this on the market! Xo”

“It doesn’t get overly complicated with scientific terms, rather it gently introduces some of the important IVF vocabulary that kiddos will need . . . overall, a delightful book.”
