I searched the forum for 'book' and didn't get the answer I was looking for -
Are there any books out there for kids about the human body and the changes at puberty that depict intact boys? We've had great success with German books (and German is one of our languages in our house, so we're lucky to have those available to us) but even the American potty books I've found have all shown circumcised boys (and one refers to the penis as a 'wee-wee'?!!!!)
Anyone run across any winners over the years? TIA, jen
|Perhaps in an effort to maintain the status quo and not raise issues with children who have been cut, the information presented here about male circumcision is to an astute reader highly questionable. The author states, "Some babies have their foreskins removed a few days after they are born, by a doctor or a specially trained religious person." The very curious structure of this sentence appears to put the infant in control of the situation. Quite the opposite of the reality of infant circumcision, in which the child has no say in the matter.
Harris goes on to state, "Although a circumcised penis looks different than an uncircumcised penis, both work the same way and equally well."
