    1. My son was reluctant to hear anything about puberty, changes or how babies are made so I picked up a couple books from the library. He also wasn't a fan of sitting and reading them alone. I asked him if he would read them with me and he did. This was the one that we started with. It gave all the necessary info, but with cartoony graphics that made it easier for him to deal with. It does mention that touching yourself is normal and okay, which may be against some peoples religious beliefs, but si [...]

    2. The book talks about how a person's body grows when they begin puberty. Some of the information is a little too detailed for a classroom book. However I would tell parents to look at this book if their child is asking questions and they do not know how to answer. One day when I have a family of my own, I will hopefully remember this book and buy it so my child doesn't have any misconceptions about what is happening when they reach puberty.

    3. 3.5 Changing You is a slight book (at 30 pages) that packs in a lot of information for tweens about physical development and sexuality. Each two-page spread addresses a topic, such as when puberty hits, physical changes in girls or boys, how babies are created and born, and feeling comfortable with one’s own body. Topics are informative and accessibly addressed with very detailed graphics. Full-page pastel, naïve art helps reduce the intimidation factor, though they may appeal more to girls t [...]

    4. This book is a fantastic approach to explaining puberty and sex, so much better than Hair in Funny Places. There's a note at the beginning to parents, followed by guidelines at the end for having this discussion with their kids. The illustrations are fun and very educational. I think allowing your kid to just read this on their own, then asking them what they thought of it afterward, would be an excellent way to educate them and let them know that the human body is not something to fear. The boo [...]

    5. This is a very good book for a pubescent teenager or just pre-pubescent. It goes over sexual development and more explicit sexuality. There may be messages in the book that some do not agree with but that, in itself, could generate discussion about how to make decisions regarding sexuality, pornography, and other related issues

    6. I didn't love how some of the information in this book is presented. The book certainly has all the information you would want your child to have, but isn't presented with the values I would prefer to teach my children

    7. Very simplistic version of puberty, good for an introduction to the issues. Spent two separate pages discussing masturbation, which seemed very excessive.

    8. Not bad information, but the focus is on sexuality in heterosexual relationships, and some of the illustrations express gender stereotypes.

    9. This book thoroughly explains puberty, intercourse, and reproduction. My main issue is that in three different parts of the book, it references marriage as a near necessity for intercourse and reproduction.
