Well, this book was a Mothers Day gift to myself and my oldest daughter (9). I decided it was past time that we had the birds and the bees discussion and this was the perfect book for the first introduction. It is quite elementary but does hit on the hard topic of sexual intercourse, how babies are made and inappropriate touches. As a nurse and a mom, I added the discussion of a woman's menses and tied it all in. It does not speak in specifics about puberty, hormonal changes and different types of families. I plan to let the 9 yr old digest the basic info and then we'll continue on with "It's So Amazing" by R. Harris.
Don't be afraid moms and dads, kids do really well with the truth! Might as well learn it from you!
