Looking for a equivalent book for puberty in Boys to "The Care and Keeping of You "...

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I've heard a lot of praise for "The Care of Keeping of You" but the books I have looked at for boys either don't provide much practical information or are too explicit. Ds isn't yet 8yo so I probably have some time, but I'd like to have a book vetted and ready when the time comes.

I'd love to know, too!  Unfortunately, my DS is already 10 and I haven't found something as user friendly.

We're looking too and this is on my list, though I haven't read it yet (but it got positive reviews on Amazon...) The Boy's Body Book: Everything You Need to Know for Growing Up YOU.

I noticed it before on amazon, but apparently it doesn't really offer much or anything on body care. I see if the local bookstore has it so I can look through it smile.gif

Ditto - such a book for boys would be great!

I've been on the hunt for a similar book for my 9 yo DS. Sounds like some intrepid mommas should write one!

Not specifically for boys buy It's Perfectly Normal  I've only glanced through it.  I have read the "younger" one It's Not the Stork, cover to cover (many, many, many times).  It's Not the Stork definitely has intact and circ'ed boys in it so I assume It's Perfectly Normal does too.

Has anyone looked at What's Happening to My Body? For Boys ?  I appreciated the girl's book, and my brother the boy's one,  but that was 20 yrs ago.  (For example I have no idea how they treat intact/circ'd boys - wasn't on my radar at the time!)
