To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Started out okay but then they included too much unnecessary info and not enough useful, relevant information. Has several sections for parents that could have been a removable insert or just edited out entirely. Somewhat awkward tone overall and the sections on puberty, attraction, love and relationships were poorly done.
Perfect book to help explain things. Really helped get over the awkwardness and the little bubbles of extra info are amazing. I really cannot praise it enough, started reading through it with my child and it’s promoted such a healthy conversation
I noticed my son becoming curious about this subject and wanted him to hear it from a reliable, accurate, child-friendly source instead of learning things from kids in school. This makes it easier to open conversations and even helps us adults through the conversation. Maybe you find it difficult to put into words? This book helps. I let him read through it and then let him ask any questions. Sure I was a bit uncomfortable with the explanation on how babies are made but that’s because I never had these talks with my parents: which is why I believe it is so important for him to know this information. Being able to talk about this openly without judgement or shame is vital. This was perfect for us!
To begin with I thought this was a simple informative book to discuss with my ten year old son! It includes body changes, feelings, making babies etc. But nowhere does it mention couples get married? There is a lot of falling in love romantically and having sex scenarios followed by babies but nowhere does it state that couples have babies when in a long term loving relationship, never mind married! I want my son to understand children should only be produced when he is with his long term partner! The hunt continues for a child friendly, morally guided book!!!
I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting some guidance on how best to approach the whole sex talk in an age appropriate way. I brought this book to sit and read with my almost 9 year old girl, who asked the dreaded “what is sex?” I remained calm and jumped straight on Amazon and we chose the book together and had it sent straight to my kindle. She already knew information about periods and the differences in boys and girls but was curious about sex. And this book covered it perfectly for her age. There were awkward moments for her while I read it but I reassured her it was all natural and something we should talk about. By the end of the book she wasn’t feeling embarrassed or awkward at all.
This book is a gem! I cringed when we borrowed it from the library last year but it was natural for our kids (then 4 & 6 and asking those questions). An year later, we have our own copy to open the door to further conversations. The only bit I would change are the birthing/hospital images, as they overly focus on hospitalised/assisted birth and overlook a woman's ability to birth naturally. Illustrations are so subtly multicultural, I almost didn't notice!
I researched for hours looking for a book to give my 8 year old daughter. She is home educated so is not going to learn any sex Ed from school. I wanted something to supplement my own explanations. And this is fantastic. Illustrations, explanations, and kid friendly chat. As an LGBT mum i admit it may not cover every single thing. The whole “mummy and daddy cuddle” type scenario makes me cringe but it’s factual enough and friendly enough that I think it would be a massive help to any kid that needs to know the specifics. Thank goodness for this book!
Good book. I bought so I could read it with my 10 year old boys. They had started asking questions and I wanted to answer them properly. It was hilarious reading it with the boys as they laughed a lot. We have since gone back to it and read it again a couple of months after the first time as they have been doing sex ed at school so we went through their latest questions. I think it is well written and covers the main points without too much detail.
