I took home a box of my old things from my mothers house in it was the American Girl Book, "The Care and Keeping of You." My 7 year old has been absolutely fascinated by this book and wants to get the same book about boys. I have not been able to find anything similar. Does anyone have any recommendations for "fun" books that talk about the changes boys go through as they hit puberty? Thanks.
Great idea!! My son is almost 8, I should get him a book about puberty.
The Boy's Body Book gets good reviews on Amazon - I particularly liked this review:
"I bought this book for my 8 yr. old after much research. I wanted something that would touch on all the necessary points without going too in-depth into sex. A book that would capture his interest and provide both a short answer and an in-depth explanation when needed.
This book filled my needs and more. It is written in a relaxed tone but still provides explanations using correct terminology. The explanantions on hygiene and friendship are great starting points for these discussions. Most importantly, it stopped at the right point between boys health and sex ed. It was important to me that my son understood what was changing in his body without the added sex info.
Now 11 yrs old, my son still refers to this book for answers about changes in his body and we use it as a catalyst for discussion about sex and all the emotional/physical implications."
