Overview

This cheerfully illustrated book takes a light approach in offering proverbial "birds and bees" instruction to boys and girls entering puberty. Full-color cartoon-style illustrations and straightforward text explain conception, pregnancy, and birth. The author also gives special focus to the experience of puberty, pointing out that it's entirely normal for kids entering their teen years to be confused by the physical changes and new feelings that take place in their bodies. She explains these changes with separate chapters that apply to "boys only" and "girls only." She also discusses the discovery of sexual feelings between boys and girls, and reassures kids about feelings of shyness when facing prospects of dating and other social encounters. Finally, she advises young adults on maintaining healthful diets and getting regular exercise to sustain healthy bodies. The book concludes with a list of Web sites that offer advice to teens, a brief glossary of related words kids might be unfamiliar with, and an index. Line illustrations on every page.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Heather Christensen
Following the lead of Robie Harris and Ed Emberly's series on sexual health and education (It's Perfectly Normal, 1995; It's So Amazing, 2000; It's Not the Stork, 2006), Bailey and Naylor create a lighthearted but informative look at growing up and all that entails. Covering a wide range of topics, the book answers questions about reproduction and puberty; discusses relationships with parents, friends, and romantic interests; and offers suggestions on healthy lifestyle choices. Naylor's comic style illustrations feature teens and children of all races and genders grappling with the issues of growing up. Detailed drawings provide anatomical information that is clear and simple to understand. Bailey covers the sometimes embarrassing topics of growing up with ease and confidence, which will help readers feel comfortable with the changes that come with adolescence. Curiously absent is any discussion of sexually transmitted diseases such as AIDS. An important aspect of the book is the encouragement given to its audience to seek the counsel and advice of supportive adults such as parents, counselors, and ministers. Included is a list of helpful resources such as crisis centers like the National Suicide Prevention Hotline or Covenant House and informational websites such as kidshealth.org. Overall, this book can be a useful guide for kids and their parents as they try to navigate the tricky waters of growing up. Reviewer: Heather Christensen
