This is a great direct and honest approach to the education of pre-teens. In the world today we all hope and pray our kids don't need to know this stuff too soon but the fact is if they don't learn the truth, at home, in a clear way they WILL certainly learn it somewhere else. This was a great addition to our conversations as my little one ventured into womanhood and through middle school into high school. The key in was making sure to use this as an companion to open dialogue so that our daughter could explore and learn at her own pace. For those more reserved parents- this may not be the ideal book- it has drawings of genitals (male and female) and clearly explains sex, contraception, etc in simple to the point terms. For us it was a perfect solution for a bookworm child who was becoming a woman. Thanks!

I was extremely disappointed when I received this book. It was not at all what I expected. It is WAY too graphic for a child just beginning puberty. I was looking for the 'basics' and I do not consider male genitals to be basic for female puberty. Explaining male erections, ejaculations, and sperm just does not apply here. I am an OB/GYN sonographer. I feel pretty 'experienced' when it comes to explaining the female reproductive system to my daughter. But she loves to read and comprehends things a little better if she reads it, so I thought this would be a nice supplement for our conversations. This may be more appropriate for the older teen, but far too much exposure for a pre teen. I will be sending this book back first thing tomorrow!!

    BEWARE_ VERY GRAPHIC FOR YOUNG GIRLS

    I was looking for an easy book for my 10 and 11 year old girls in my Girl Scout Troop. We are learning about early body changes. I BLUSHED when reading this book. I can just say, its for the very advanced readers and maturity levels. THEY are ALL being returned tomorrow!!

    from wat i read on the overview i think the book 'Chicken Soup for the Preteen soul ages 9-13' is much more appropriate for the kids to read
