Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Meredith Kiger
This 125 page book is an introduction to puberty for boys and briefly discusses all aspects, both physical and emotional, of the process of moving from childhood to adulthood. Published under the auspices of the American Medical Association, its format is a series of questions that a prospective teen may ask, with answers provided by a family physician. Overall, the tone is one of "you are not alone" and encourages the reader to seek appropriate adult advice if their questions need further explanation. The discussions cover all facets such as eating, exercise, height, weight, the reproductive system, feelings, relationships, sex, and so on. The accompanying cartoon drawings seem silly and inappropriate at times but the information is straightforward and helpful. Parents might consider reading it with their teen to foster open communication. A glossary, an index, and sources for further info are included.

    Perfect for the preteen

    Our search was for a book on puberty geared toward boys. After looking through many, many, many different books, this one is the perfect fit for younger boys. Most of the books that I looked at were either too cartoonish, or had a little more information than my 10-year-old son needed at this point. This one sets just the right tone. It addresses the emotional as well as the physical issues of the preteen boy.

    Helpful for my 11 year old boy

    I was looking for a book to help give my son additional guidance through this difficult time in his life and i found it. This book provided him with answers to questions he did not know he had. I was surprised to hear him sparking conversations with me in areas of food choices and exercise. The book stresses how important making healthy food choices are in child development as well as long term. It also provided him with appropriate and concise answers to questions that tweens might find embarrasing to ask but want to know the answers to. I was also pleased to see that it contained infomation on how to be a good friend and how to make friends. This is a very good book and i reccomend it to parents who are trying to give their children guidance and support during this important developmental time in life.

    My son 10 1/2 and starting to notice changes in his body. this book was helpful, it answered a lot of questions for him and their were some subjects I would not have thought to discuss with him that he was curious about and they don't cover in school health lessons. Very helful book for pre-teen and teen boys.
