Editorial Reviews

VOYA
This workbook is a wonderful aid for teachers, but for parents to give to their kids, however, it is a little excessive. I think that it is a great tool to use with lesson plans on the subject. Madaras does a great job of combining education with something more fun than just listening to a teacher talk about puberty. Illus. Photos. Charts. Further Reading.

I'm a single mom raising a boy who has ALL of the questions. Thank you for ALL of the factual answers. I always told him I'd tell him the truth. Your book helps tons to aid me in getting the words out and correctly.

Written in a manner to which a young boy can relate. My grandson took the book and began reading. He already had discussions with his father, but he seemed happy to have something of his own for reference. His parents felt the material was well covered

This is for reviews not talking. Not only is this inconsiderate to people looking for actual reviews its dangerous too. Pedophiles love the internet because they can meet and make friends with kids and pretend that they are kids too. It doesn't matter if you dont tell them where you live. They can figure that stuff out from conversations. And dont under estimate technology either. With just your name OR phone number people can find where you live by going to certain websites. A little bit of fun could turn into a lot of trouble. Please dont risk it.
