    A reviewer

    I love this book! It's honest and down to Earth. I especially appreciate the questions that real children ask and the answers to those questions. My twelve-year-old can understand everything! Some people (including many doctors) wrongly believe that 'full disclosure' i.e. teaching the actual mechanics of sex is appropriate for children. I strongly disagree and, thankfully, it seems so does the author of this book. This book teaches about physical maturation, myth-busting, how to take care of the body, and that people are normal even though we are all different in the timing of our physical maturity. BRAVO!!
