Product Description

If you are looking for a trusted resource to use in explaining sexuality to children 5 to 8 years old you will find this gently illustrated book an asset. From a biblical viewpoint you can explain sexuality, human reproduction, and the growth of a child inside the mother's body. Understandable yet straightforward text, and softened, but very realistic illustrations show the physical differences between men and women before and after puberty, as well as the miracle of childbirth. Children will develop an appreciation for God's marvelous gift of their bodies, including their sexual organs, and begin to understand the concept of families as God's intended framework for their own nurture and growth.

This is Book Two in the God's Design for Sex series, with over 250,000 copies in print. It will allow you as the parent to be your child's primary sex educator, teaching what God's design for sex is all about, through marriage, pregnancy, and birth.

    Friends of ours recommended the book. We started with Book 1 and did Book 2 two days later for our 8 and 10 year olds. Book 1 was simple and fine, while Book 2 sparked an hour's worth of conversation. However, we enjoyed a great conversation. The kids were shocked at how everything "works." I was so pleased by their surprise/disgust responses throughout the book, as I thanked the Lord that they were hearing much of the information from their parents...FOR THE FIRST TIME. I thank the Lord that we were able to lay some foundation pieces in place and prayerfully trust that they will walk after Him in a worthy manner, guarding their sexuality and their bodies and saving themselves for their spouse on their wedding day.

    I read this to my 6 year old daughter. It raised appropriate questions and it also seemed to answer some questions that she had. It is written in a straight forward and beautiful manner to show the gift of life in a wholesome way.

    I have two boys, seven and ten. I want to give them accurate information about sex and birth in a matter of fact way. This book was extremely helpful. For some reason, my seven year old is more curious right now and the illustrations were helpful if explaining how a woman gives birth.

    I would have to say it all depends on your comfort level as parent, but I would rather my children hear about sex from me, in a biblical manner and these books help with that. Nine and ten years are already talking about sex and pornography, so these books help me, as a parent, to give my sons a fact-based foundation and a springboard of how True Love Waits.

    This book has beautiful illustrations. We read it to our 9 1/2 year old son. I wouldn't read this book to my 5 1/2 year old. Our son appreciated us giving him information on how we are created and God's plan. Just so you know - this book tells all!

    We love this series that promotes healthy sexuality and the role of parents in giving kids appropriate information about sexuality. This book is not too embarrassing to read - it is pretty matter-of-fact.

    This second book in the series does go as far as to explain that male parts fit into female parts, which to me seems like a little too much for the age rating on the book. This might not be the case for young kids who are around older kids who might talk about sexual issues. But we will wait until an older age range for the full reading of this book.
