Wonderfully factual. Great job avoiding bias and judgement. This book tells kids what all the words mean, so they have a great start at understanding sex education.

Did not find this book suitable for my 4 year old daughter (a librarian recommended it to us). In fact, on the cover of the book it is recommended for 7 year olds and up. Even for a 7 year old be aware there are a lot of details and some pretty heavy topics. I also didn't appreciate that it was clearly a book written for Americans, which makes it tricky for Canadians.

Five year old daughter did not like ( too much information) but 8 year old son found it fascinating. Highly recommended.

Nicely done book about "the facts of life" - reader is guided through by a bird and a bee, funnily enough....! The bird thinks it is all sooo amazing; the bee wishes everyone would just stop talking about it. Probably children will identify with one or the other! Facts are clearly and plainly laid out in an easily understood format with lots of great pictures (the ones showing the stages of growth of a baby in utero are especially neat). Worth reading by parents first, to make sure you are okay with how info is dealt with, since the book also has a short section on abuse. It's delicately done and tries not to make it heavy, which is good. Our almost-six-year-old has not asked any questions yet but this book should serve as a good intro, before she's too much older. (This book was recommended by Meg Hickling, in her book The New Speaking of Sex.)
