I LOVE Taking Charge of Your Fertility and have made it available to my kids since I started reading it 7 or 8 years ago. They know all about how a woman's body works. I'd love one that factually but thoroughly explains a man's body.

 

However, I'd also like to find a book that might teach him more than just that. Like, what to expect from his emotions, the things he might experience and how to deal, etc.

 

Any book recommendations?

I bought my kids What's Happening to Me by Peter Mayle and The What's Happening to My Body Books for Boys and Girls by Lynn Madaras for my son and daughter (ages 11 and 13). The former is less mature and detailed than the latter two, which are quite explicit and thorough. It was important to me that they depict intact, as well as circumcised male anatomy, so my son would feel normal, reading them. I haven't read them cover to cover but like what I have read. And the kids were quite interested in them, of course.
