This book has a fantastic way of ensuring your child can feed a healthly couristaty on sex education. For any parent worried about how to talk to your child, then this book is it. The 'bird and bee' who follow you through each stage are wonderful in helping explain each chapter for children aged 8/9 years. For those who are 11 to 13, it really will aid them to understand puberty without embarassing parents!!!!
An educational and fun way to explain a subject that's considered sensitive, sometimes even still taboo, for parents and children. Explore and explain as we read it with kids, make sure you make room for them to ask questions. The book is informative and resourceful with age appropriate illustration and text that's easy to digest for both parents and children. It covers among others: puberty, changing bodies, reproduction, sex, sexual health, pregnancy, birth and families. Simple and straight forward with a wit:) Great first book on sex education for elementary school level, but can still be useful for older children.
I bought this book for my 12-year old daughter. It was a bit "young" for her, with its cartoon-like drawings and lack of depth. But it was tasteful and appropriate and taught all the right general messages. I have found books appropriate for high school-age kids and some appropriate for younger kids, but nothing that really speaks to a mature 12-year old girl. Sigh.
We leave this book in the bathroom so that anyone can flip it open without being embarrassed. This book provides in depth yet entertaining and easy to understand information on sex, sexuality, puberty, pregnancy, sexual harassment, abuse, diseases and health problems, even alternative ways to make a baby like in vitro. This book can provide loads of information to adults as well as children and adolescents. It is great for shy children and families who may have a difficult time dealing with the topics. This book is recommended for children 9 and up, but the sensitivity of the book is appropriate for any children with an interest in biology, anatomy or family dynamics. This is a must have book for any family.
