It's Perfectly Normal: Changing Bodies, Growing Up, Sex, and Sexual Healthby Michael Emberley
Providing accurate, lucid, unbiased answers top nearly every conceivable question children may have about sexuality, It's Perfectly Normal is here to help. From conception and puberty to birth control and AIDS, it is a refreshingly open and thorough presentation of the facts of sex - both biological and psychological - which children need now more than ever. Throughout, two cartoon characters, a curious bird and a squeamish bee, reflect the diverse feelings children often have about sex. Packed with warm, age-appropriate illustations, often humorous but always scientifically correct, It's Perfectly Normal offers children the resassurance that the changes and emotions they experience while growing up are perfectly normal.
"I recommend [IT'S PERFECTLY NORMAL] to parents and children who are coming into adolescence. They will love it." — T. Berry Brazelton, M.D. author of TOUCHPOINTS
"A perfectly wonderful treatment of the always touchy subject of sex education for young people. The book treats the subject seriously and its intended readers respectfully." — Hugh B. Price, president, National Urban League, Inc.
