Teaching your child the correct name for their genitals or private parts, can be made much easier with some good children's books about private parts. You don't need a book to do this, but books can help with starting and continuing, the conversation with your child.
If you're not sure about how to get started, then you may find this blogpost on how to teach your child the names of their private body parts useful.
These children's books about private parts will help your child to understand the differences between boys and girls (something that young children are very curious about). They'll also teach your child the correct names of these parts, and to start to talk about body safety.
The books listed here are books that talk about the different parts of the body. Some books are focused just on teaching children the names of the private parts of their body. Other books are more generalist, as they talk about a wide range of different sex ed topics, including the genitals and reproductive organs.
Some books are for toddlers and preschoolers, whereas others are books for older kids and even tweens or teens.
You will only find books in this list that are readily available at bookshops today.
