Publisher's Description

Author Jim Burns believes the key to instilling in children a healthy, values centered view of sexuality is to start the discussion early--being open and honest at every stage. The Pure Foundations series is already guiding parents of preteens and teens through potentially awkward conversations. Now two fully illustrated books--one for pre-readers and one for early readers--complete the series.

God Made Your Body provides the basic foundation that God created our bodies and wants us to honor Him with our bodies. Through engaging text and eye-catching, kid-friendly illustrations, children ages 3 to 5 will learn that boys' and girls' bodies are different--and those differences mean boys and girls can grow up to become daddies and mommies.

    This book does an excellent job of describing in easy terminology the body and what makes boys and girls different and the same. It starts off with the statement that God made boys and girls. I think the photographs are wonderfully captivating. Although I agree with being open and honest with my 4 children about their bodies I found parts of this book to be a little uncomfortable. I am not sure that the ages of 3 to 5 is the time I want to discuss how a mommy and daddy come together in a special way called making love. Nor do I feel comfortable discussing with my toddler the sperm and egg and resulting embryo. I have no problem with telling my children the anatomically correct names of their body parts, though we prefer to call them our private no touch zone. I am just not comfortable going into great detail at this age as to the function of these parts.I do understand the authors reason for writing this book as children are being exposed to these ideas and images at a very early age because of our over-sexualized world. However, I do not feel that I am ready to be so bold and open with all things at this early age. If you are looking for a book that is very matter of fact on all issues of sexuality this is the book for you. If you are not quite ready to show diagrams of the body and have a description of their function this is not the book for you.I do think that this book is one of the best for this subject as the author approaches it with a biblical view, giving God the credit of His creation. As my children begin to ask questions it will be the one I use with them. I have viewed other books on this subject and have not found them as well thought out. I t is obvious that this author has a heart to educate children in such a way that sex, and their body are not shameful, but to be guarded until marriage and kept pure.

    Great foundational book for preschoolers. Beautiful pictures and very age appropriate language. I received this book free from Bethany House.

    Jim Burns did a wondeful job of explaining the differences between boys and girls in a tasteful, educational and understandable way. There is enough info to teach the topic without crossing the line of TOO MUCH INFO for little ones to handle. I love the fact that he gives scripture references!

    In Burns' first 32 page volume, God Made Your Body (for ages 3-5), I want to highlight the two font sizes of text. The larger font size contains one simple sentence on either every page or every other page. After reading the book and thinking it through, I realized that for the younger end of this recommended age, the larger font size alone could be read. Most 3-4 year old children simply will not have the patience for the reading of the complete text, as engaging and developmentally appropriate as the accompanying photographs may be. They simply will want to turn the pages too quickly. Although the inclusion of the two font sizes is not explained in the introductory letter to parents, I believe this is the authors intent.I also want to note that in the smaller font size the term making love is included, so parents may want to consider whether to read this terminology or substitute a different phrase. Emphases in the first volume include Gods creation of individuals, their similarities and differences, every individuals worth to God, fetal development, infant care, and the God-ordained role of the family. Lovely, heartwarming photography is included throughout and multicultural images are used. This book appropriately closes with an excerpt from Psalm 139.I already own a couple of different volumes which cover this subject, yet Burns are the ones I now prefer and I am considering purchasing the other three volumes in this series. One is designed for pre-teens, another for teens, and the final one is for parents. Do consider the recommended ages listed on these volumes as guidelines. For example, many children may not be interested in nor sit still for the complete text of the first volume until age 5 or 6. As a former natural childbirth educator and home educating mother of five, I am glad to have found these volumes.

    So I read the book to my children,"God Made Your Body", and felt fine with it. It talked about the many differences like hair and eye color. It did give some information on the differences of boys and girls genetalia and that "a mommy and daddy come together in a special way called making love". They spoke briefly about the sperm and egg and this is how babies are made. I think this was written well, and while I felt a little uncomfortable it was brief and to the point. They then talked about how babies grow in the mommys tummy and are born, then about family. I think this book is a great starting point on talking to your kids about their body.
