I have a 10 year old, who going off my mom instinct is giving me the hints that he wants more information.....anyone have any good book recommendations?

I find the What's Happening to my Body series to be a little too in depth, and while those authors have a book geared toward younger girls out now, they don't seem to have one for the boys as well.

Anyone?

yep, me too. we don't need the whole detailed lot, but something with some simple pics and frank discussion of puberty would be nice. he likes to read.

i've been looking and not finding anything good.

When I bought my daughter "The Period Book", I also picked up "What's Going on Down There?" (it's 'brother' book) for my son.
