Sometime between the ages of nine and fifteen, children's bodies begin to change and grow into adult bodies - and with these changes comes a natural curiosity about sex and sexuality. This book gives the facts - biological and psychological - of sex: from conception and puberty to birth control and AIDS, including sections on the body, families and babies, and sexual health. The book's approach is simple, with cartoon illustrations and the speech-bubble comments of two characters, a curious bird and a squeamish bee, which reflect the diverse feelings children have about sex.

Review:

A great book... All the facts are there without reservation, but it has a gentle approach that is very reassuring. * The Times Educational Supplement * Informative, down-to-earth and humorous, containing everything a pre-teen will want to know about growing up - the best book I have seen on this subject. -- Nanette Newman * The Sunday Express * I was impressed by the brave and comprehensive coverage of this subject. -- Judith Hann * The Guardian * A book about sex that manages to be honest without losing its sense of humor. -- The New York Times * The New York Times * Down to earth and honest, this is one of the best sex guides for youngsters and their parents. * The Sun * a useful, recently updated resource for parents and their kids. * The Sun *
