5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect, 24 Aug. 2013
This review is from: Amazing You!: Getting Smart about Your Private Parts (Paperback)
Review originally written in 2009: This picture book as the title states is about the body's "private parts". The book is intended for children who are starting to ask questions about their own or the opposite sex's parts and what they are for. The book is written in simple language using correct medical terminology and the illustrations are simple, friendly and alternately show Caucasian and African American people.

What to expect: detailed discussion of male and female genitalia and reproductive organs, illustrations of full frontal nudity of children and full grown man and woman, description of a woman making an egg and a man making sperm, a description of an egg and a sperm meeting to grow a baby and how a mother knows when it's time for the baby to be born.

What not to expect: This book skips over s*xual int*rc*urse completely, as well as the function of breasts, and the delivery process.

This book is aimed at children coming to you with their first questions. For example my son wanted to know what his testicles were for and did I have them. When I said girl parts were completely different he wanted to know what they looked like. (He's been told girls don't have his same parts many times but he's never cared to ask any further before). This book was perfect for answering my son's questions; it contained just the right amount of information. There is a heavy emphasis on "private parts" being private which easily allow a parent to further emphasize safety issues on "bad touches" if they wish. My son only had two small questions not answered in the book, but I was able to use the illustrations as visuals to give him the answers he sought. I am very pleased with this book. It serves its purpose in an easy-to-use, friendly manner, accessible to all.

From a Christian point of view, if you are ok with the review up to this point you will find that although the book is secular it is perfect for use in a Christian home. There is one sentence that some Christians may wish to skip over which does advocate the touching of one's private parts in private. Nothing else of any concern.
