1.0 out of 5 stars NOT for 10 yr olds...
By Melissa on April 24, 2019
I read a few other reviews commenting on the inappropriate illustrations but because I didn't have pictures to gauge for myself whether I was ok with them or not, I thought I would give this book a try anyways. There is no way I will be showing it to my child. Why does a 10 year old need to see an illustration of a woman riding a man? Why do they need to see an illustration of people masturbating? Is a description not enough? This book was not done with class. It reflects a style of sleazy locker room talk. They age recommendation should be increased. Its way too inappropriate for a 10 year old. Theres a chapter on abortion too. Do they really need to know about that at 10?

I would NOT recommend this book as an introduction to sex ed for a child. That is what I was looking for. This clearly is not it. I Will be returning it.
