Amazing You book by Gail Saltz is a book for young children that talks about body parts and where babies come from (with no mention of sexual intercourse).
This is one of those books that should satisfy a child’s curiosity about where babies come from and why bodies can be the same but yet different. This book doesn’t talk about sexual intercourse but it does say that when a man and a woman love each other and decide to make a baby, that the man’s sperm will join with the woman’s egg, and a baby will grow. It also talks about how the baby grows and is born (vaginal birth only).
This book briefly talks about masturbation in regards to the fact that it is okay to be curious about your private parts and to touch them (just do it in a private place). This is one of the few books for younger children that does discuss masturbation (or touching your genitals because it can feel nice).
Amazing You book by Gail Saltz is ideal for children between the ages of 4 – 8 years of age.
