really liked it

My son is an inquisitive guy and ever since he started asking questions about bodies and sexuality as a little guy, I have always tried to provide honest, accurate and age-appropriate answers. However, around his 9th birthday, I found the questions a little more difficult to answer in a straightforward way without embarrassing him or grossing him out. Thank goodness for this book. He has read it cover to cover many times since I gave it to him, and has spoken to his dad or meabout any parts that need further clarification. A perfect guide for the pre-adolescent, with clear explanations, a friendly tone, and non-threatening illustrations. Big thumbs up!

Vanessa Hi Abigail -

Thanks for your comment. I did look at the book you recommended and think it will be a great book for him in another year or two. The Usborne guide was the perfect intro for him at this time - almost like a comic book - and the very thin-ness of it made it less daunting for him to get stuck into.
