Book Review: Anatomicum by Katie Wiederman & Jennifer Z Paxton is a beautifully illustrated book that includes conception and the reproductive organs.
A short overview of this book
Anatomicum by Katie Wiederman & Jennifer Z Paxton would have to be one of my favourite human body books. And bonus points because it includes the reproductive organs, discusses conception and includes all the different stages of fetal development.
This book gives a simple description of how the egg and sperm sex cell join as a result of sexual intercourse (but it gives no description of sexual intercourse).
It also includes the endocrine system that is responsible for puberty, whilst also discussing puberty.
I really like this book, mainly because of the beautifully illustrations. I think it is a great human body to include in your family library!
You can learn more on this page, about how to talk to kids about sex education.
