Eastofoz Can anyone recommend a good book about changing bodies for boys aged 10 to 13? There seems to be a lot for girls but not much for boys. This would be for an avid reader who doesn't particularly like comic books, enjoys humor and science based books too.

My son appreciated Robie Harris' It's Perfectly Normal: Changing Bodies, Growing Up, Sex, and Sexual Health when he was about 11-12.

ABC (Mary6543) | 341 comments I just got The Boy's Body Book: Everything You Need to Know for Growing Up YOU

I can not vouch for it because I have not read it yet. However, I liked that it talks more than just about sex.....growing up, athlete's foot, divorce.....I can't remember the various topics but you can look at a sample and see for yourself.
