The best books about body parts for preschoolers

If you're looking for books about body parts for preschoolers, that also talk about the private parts, then you are in the right place.

There are lots of books out there that talk about the human body but most forget to talk about the reproductive system. So here  you will find the best books about the body parts for preschoolers that focus on these parts of the human body. 

Most preschoolers are curious about the differences between boys and girls.  ​So having a book that empowers your preschooler with this information means that they are less likely to go exploring with their peers (ie playing doctor and inspecting their friends genitals). 

Books can also help with answering some of the many questions that your child may have. Plus a book will provide your preschooler with lots of information that is age-appropriate and easy to understand. 

If you want a few tips, then this article on how to start talking about the private body parts with your child, may help. 

You’ll find more information about sex education in my Sex Education 101 page.

Other resources you can use

These girl and boy puzzles by Hape actually do have some very basic (non- threatening) genitals on the naked body.


Or if you want something that has a few more clothes and both male and female bodies, then the Melissa and Doug set is an option.

Or if you want some puzzles of people in work clothing (and genitals) then this set by T.S. Shure are another option.

There are dolls that are anatomically correct. You can find boy and girl dolls of different cultural backgrounds and of varying sizes. Here are some of them.

These are some of the many toys and books about body parts for preschoolers that have been written. As I find more, I will add them to this list. They are all really good books that you will find useful for starting to talk about the private body parts.

If you have looked at these body parts for preschoolers, you may also be interested in books on other topics too. You can find many of them listed in my sex education book review site.
