    1. Overall an excellent book for a tween boy (girls could learn a lot too), and a good opener for parents to start discussions with their sons. It covered topics ranging from body changes/ development, sex, birth control, and what's happening to girls, to open ended "things you might be worried about." It was age appropriate language and style for developing-age boys.Like some other reviewers, out of 140-ish pages, there were one or two lines that I didn't love. The last chapter asks adult men what [...]

    2. Great starting point for opening up discussions with our boys. Simple, concrete explanations, with a bit of a sense of humor---makes this feel easy.ers crossed! Wish us luck!

    3. I really liked this book, some parts of it made me laugh and some parts made me cringe. Also, I really learned a lot from this book (considering I already know a lot) it helped me out a lot.

    4. Much of the book was ok. I skimmed it so I can't speak to everything. I disagree with some of the authors statements about circumcision. Babies do feel pain and the pain from a circumcision doesn't end as quickly as the authors say it does. I think that with any book like this, it is very helpful to read it with your child so that you can share your own values and beliefs on the topic and use the book as a resource and a place to begin. I checked out several books from the library to help me in [...]

    5. I previewed this book to see if it was appropriate for my tween son who has begun asking questions. Overall I feel this book is probably most appropriate for a teenager (13 and above). One passage in this book was odd--it said heterosexual boys masturbating together (or even each other) was not oddI'm going to have to disagree and my husband violently disagrees. We have zero issue with them discussing the difference between hetero and homo sexual relationships (which they do) but this wasn't som [...]

    6. I read this book only to see if there is more information from boys puberty, because also I read other books about puberty. So this book was more information and allot of pictures to understand about growing into man. Plus this book have who to make babys for real, they have little fact about girls into puberty too if boys are woundering about her. And also there is many questions about boys and they can answere on the book. So this book is fun facts but also it ture boy are growing they are lea [...]

    7. Quite detailed, informative, and candid book about puberty, sex, and sexuality for tweens and teens, written by a nurse with the assistance of her two sons. It discusses feelings without moralizing. Pretty sound and I'd recommend it. I'd also welcome a new edition that talked about gender and transgender; as one might expect from its original publication date (1998), those are not covered. A bit more surprising is the absence of pornography as a topic. The short section about "meeting people on- [...]

    8. I read this one to see if it would be good for my boys that are about to launch into puberty. It was great. It was clear on the science and also clear (for a Mom like me who is socially liberal and not religious, ie Libertarian) on the societal and psychological implications and potential experiences as well. Now if I could only get them to read it!

    9. (Purchased for my son.) This book gives the boys such thorough information, that I'm going to have my daughter read it in addition to the one she read designed for girls entering/experiencing puberty.

    10. This is a great primer. I pre-read it, for obvious reasons, and decided it's a good go-to book for my 11 year old. There is one answer to a 'write in' question that raised my eyebrow, but essentially it comes across as helpful, informative and nonjudgmental.

    11. ESTE LIBRO SE TRATA DE COMO PREVENIR INFECSIONES SEXUALES Y TAMBIEN SE TRATA DE TU CUERPOTE LIBRO ME ENCATA POR QUE TE ALLUDA A COMO PREVENIREL POR EJEMPLO EL HPV.

    12. HAHA. I was actually reading this after the ELA test we took today. I really like the illustrations by the way. VERY DETAILED. -amyelizabeth.

    13. I read this before giving it to my 10-year-old son. It was a good opener to the big puberty talk. The best news is my son seemed to enjoy it even more than I did.
