I read this to my 8 year old and he had a melt down. I had to omit some parts and not show him a couple of the pictures. I think it does well of explaining God's design for sex but maybe a bit too detailed for this age range.
The thought of approaching the subject of reproduction with our small children was a bit nerve wracking. However we wanted them to hear it from us in the safety of our home before being misinformed by classmates or even teachers. Upon a recommendation from my sister we used this book. It made starting the conversation much more comfortable. I am a nurse in women's health and I believe the information was presented in a very straightforward yet very age appropriate way. At the core is the truth that we are created by God and we are loved by our Creator.
This book along with the other 3 in the collection are a must have. No need to purchase them all together but I did when my kid was at the 3rd book age range and started with the 1st until we got to the 3rd. I could have just read the 3rd but the second one covered something we had not talked about prior to reading the book. Iwould say to someone that has not had any sort of conversations on the topic with their kids to start from the 1st. This books are great to start conversations in an age appropriate way, mot importantly shows what God's plan was. I would recommend reading each book yourself BEFORE reading it to your kid and to keep in mind that they need to hear some things FROM YOU 1st.
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.
