Book Description

What do you want to know about sex?

Information about sex is everywhere. But what you learn from TV, movies, the internet, and friends is not always a healthy or accurate view of sexuality.

Now revised and updated with current facts, Joanna Cole's Asking About Sex & Growing Up is the perfect book to provide answers to questions about sex. Writing especially for preteens, the author uses a question-and-answer format to offer straightforward information on a wide variety of subjects related to sex and puberty.

5.0 out of 5 stars perfectly pitched 10 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this for my 11 year old when I realised that there were some pretty big gaps still in her knowledge, despite the school sex education which happens and our casual chats at home. She read it through by herself and then we chatted about the things she wanted to know more about or wasn't clear about. The book is an excellent reference for any such discussions and presented the information in a way she could readily understand, accept and also which made sense to her. We are both confident that she has a good grounding in all the basics and has a good factual knowledge which helps to take the embarrassment out of the whole subject. It deals with everything from both the boy's and girl's perspective, which helps to promote a better understanding of what is happening to the opposite sex too. Thoroughly recommend this book.

This book is fab! As any responsible parent I read through the book before giving it to my 9 year old, and I love the matter-of-fact approach to a topic that can so easily turn "embarrassing" or awkward. I've always been very open and matter-of-fact myself when my children ask questions, but I think this book will definitely help my daughter as she approaches the "sex ed" age. Some things are probably more easily digested when read in a book than from mummy. The illustrations are VERY age appropriate and NOT (as stated by a previous poster) soft-porn, or anywhere near it!
I cannot recommend this book enough for parents of 9-11 year olds entering that next stage of their life!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good info for pre-teens 23 Aug. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Excellent for my 12 years-old old daughter who is too shy to ask questions. She frequently has sleep -overs with her friends and, no doubt, talk about these things.

4.0 out of 5 stars Helpful and interesting 15 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was very helpful and answered all my questions about growing up. I strongly recommend it for all those preteens out there, like myself, who are starting to notice changes in their bodies and have some questions about these changes or other related subjects.

My son began to ask a lot of questions about growing up and sex, which I tried to answer as best I could! He devoured this book (hardly ever reads voluntarily) and it seemed very age appropriate and answered all his questions for now, so great buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars No nonsense, child friendly guided to growing up. 31 Aug. 2014
By nicoleb
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is one of the 2 books I got for my 11 year old son. It asks the sorts of questions he's probably thinking but not wanting to ask! I found that this book was really good to let him read to himself in his own time as the answers sometimes made him feel embarrassed. I used the other book to go through and discuss things with him. A really good, straightforward, child friendly book to help make sense of growing up!
