great book..in a great series....well written for parents and kids to begin addressing a topic that is important and that people sometimes have a hard time figuring out how much and when to address it. positive and factual
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!
