Book was O.K.

I thought the book was Good until I got to the page about masturbation. I wish that part was left out of the book. The rest of it was good and not too embarassing for either parent or child.

    Excellent first step in sex education

    As a single mother of a young boy without a male role model, I was nervous about approaching this subject. I read the book myself first, so I would be prepared for any questions; or so I hoped. We read the book together the first time. Now I find my son reading it to himself occasionally, always followed by another question. I would recommend this book to any and every one.

    5 year old loves it

    I got this for my 5 year old. We've read it several times and I've even caught him correcting his 2 year old brother on the facts of life. The book makes a complicated topic easy for youngsters to understand. A great tool for starting sex dialog early.

    this book was very helpful in a starting conversation with my tw

    this book was very helpful in a starting conversation with my two kids on sex and their bodies. I wanted to be the voice they were listening to about sex, not classmates or friends. Keeping the conversation open is key. I would recommend this to anyone of my friends with children. I will also say that it is equally great for both boys and girls.

    Perfect!

    Just the right amount of information for your initial conversation on this subject. Thank you so much Marc and Laurie Brown. This book made what for some is a stress filled subject very easy to explore with both my 7 1/2 and 10 year old!
