A Comprehensive, Fully Illustrated Guide to Our Changing Bodies
Kids ask a lot of questions (and that's an understatement). Sometimes the answers are easy for parents to come up with . . . and sometimes they're a little more complicated. That's what this book is for! When Boys and Girls Become Men and Women should accompany children (and their parents) on the long road to adulthood and allows both groups to explore this new territory together, step by step.
Everyone looks different, and everyone has their own strengths and weaknesses, interests and passions, but our bodies go through similar processes, no matter how similar or different we may look or act. When Boys and Girls Become Men and Women is perfect for those who are curious about their own bodies, as well as their peers', and for grade-schoolers and preteens who want to know more about everything from puberty to pregnancy. Chapters include:
What Girls Want to Know About Boys
What Boys Want to Know About Girls
Girls and Boys Grow Up
Good Personal Hygiene
Love—and What It Entails
What Happens During Sexual Intercourse
Sex, Pregnancy, and Contraception
Even Healthy People Should Go to the Doctor
Pregnancy—From a Cell to a Whole Person
A Baby Enters the World
