This review is from: What's Happening to Me?: Boy (Paperback)
Read this with my 10 year old boy over the summer. Some of his classmates are beginning to develop so I felt it was worth getting in with correct information before false rumours start at the first signs of an underarm hair or swelling breast. My boy is physically on the younger side and a long way from any of this happening to him, BUT he needs to know what is happening to his peers so he is properly informed and less open to teasing/misinformation if he takes a little longer to get there. I feel this and the girls book should be combined into one as development at this age is about secondary sexual characteristics and sex is not something that happens in isolation! This book is comprehensive on the boy side. I felt Dr Christian's book was better (despite hating his program on TV).
For the more delicate parents who don't want to discuss too much anatomy or older concerns with peer pressure (re sex, drugs) have a flick through the books first as all these areas are covered.
My son wasn't phased and easily saw what was immediately useful to him and what was a bit further down the line. Forewarned is forearmed. He has the books in his box for reference whenever he needs to.
