What’s the Big Deal About Sex?

Birds do it. Bees do it. And when you turn on the television, log on to the Internet, or watch a movie, you can’t help but notice that everyone else seems to be doing it too.

To be honest, this book has been really tedious and boring to get through, and for that reason alone, I would recommend people seek a different book to learn more about this topic.

Kay Arthur has a way of explaining the word of God that just make sense. I actually made my teenage daughter read this book as well.
