I love this book. I bought Amazing You (a bit more basic and vague on the details but still good) several months ago and my son really enjoyed that but recently started asking further questions about *precisely* how the mechanics work and why the sexes are different. I have to admit that I thought I might have a couple more years before having to explain in more detail (he's only 4) but I very much believe that you need to give a child honest answers to these questions otherwise I think they worry and pick up incorrect and potentially scary information from elsewhere. This book gives all the details in a fun, approachable and yet sensible way with good illustrations. One thing I love about this over other books is that it actually shows the outside of a girl's genitals so that my son could see what was going on there (one of the questions that he was asking a lot). Other books seem to show the outside and inside of boys but only the inside parts of girls, which I think is a bit confusing. I like that there are different chapters, so you can either read through the whole thing together, pick particular topics that your child is asking about, or skip parts that you don't think they're quite ready for. There are lots of funny bits on the book too - there are two little characters who make comments and the part where it explains what babies do in their Mummy's tummies (kick, hit, burp) had my son in hysterics. I would certainly recommend this book to all parents, I think it's informative and makes a tricky subject very approachable.

I purchased this book for my autistic son. It is very friendly and easy to read without shocking the child by book. I recommend.

Half way through reading this to my 8 1/2 year old. It is ideal to get the message across without being too scientific - would recommend

I bought this after my nine year old Granddaughter asked how babies get into a mummy's tummy!
This book has all the information written in a very gentle manner. It was a great buy which got me out of a hole!

A book that has everything a child needs to know and put in a nice way.

Not the best but good enough to explain some tricky bits to my 5 year old daughter:)

Bought for 9 year old daughter about to have 'the talk' at school as I have skirted around the topic up til then! She read it from cover to cover in a day and found it easy to read, engaging and not at all scary, thank goodness. It is a bit 'girly' and assumes girls are into looking good, make up and being attractive to boys etc which is disappointing but otherwise a good first book on puberty.

Very pleased with this book my daughter thought it was a little to the point which is why I brought it as she was having a baby by c-section, and I wanted the boy to know what was happened to mum rather than hear horror tails, they enjoyed the pictures and new what was going to happen to mummy
