Some of the best children’s books about sexting

Here you'll find books that will help you to talk to your child about sexting ie messages or pictures that have sexual content like a nude picture, sexy words or a video. 

Sexting is a conversation that you'll need to think about having, especially if your child has their own phone, email account or they have signed up for any social media accounts or games where people can send them private messages. 

You can find some age-appropriate information for kids about sexting from Kids Helpline. And if you don't know what to do if your child has  already received some messages, then read this article about what to do when you receive a sext

If you're uncertain about how to  talk to your child about these types of images, then this blogpost,  How to protect children from internet dangers (like online porn), can help you with getting started. 

The easist way to start this awkward conversation is with age-appropriate childrens books. Surprisingly enough, I was able to find a few books that do talk about sexting. I couldn't find a book that was 100% about sexting, but I did find some books that talk about it. 

I haven't included any sex education books for teenagers in this list, as many of them talk about sexting as well as many other sexual topics! So if you have an older teen, you can also look at the books in that list. 

You will only find books in this list that are readily available at bookshops today. 

You can find more books about different topics in the main list of Sex Education Books for Children.

NOTE: Before passing any book to your child or reading the book with your child, you should read it yourself first. I might think it is a great book for a certain age child or that the information is valuable, but you may disagree. You need to choose books that reflect your values and the messages you want your child to receive.

Sex education books about sexting

These are some of the few children's books about sexting that have been written. As I find more, I will add them to this list. They are all really good books that kids can read to find reliable and accurate information about love, sex and relationships. Plus they will help prepare you too!

If you have looked at these books, you may also be interested in books on other topics too. You can find many of them listed in my other reviews of sex education books for children
