Let’s Talk About the Birds and the Bees: Starting conversations about the facts of life (From how babies are made to puberty and healthy relationships) by Molly Potter is a comprehensive look at sex education for children.
This book is fantastic and literally covers everything a child needs to know about the birds and bees. At the back, it has tips for parents and even addresses some of the fears that parents have about talking to their kids about sex. It covers gender differences, the private body parts, what private means, what touching is okay, puberty, how babies are made, sexual intercourse love and much more. The author provides kids with the facts and doesn’t overwhelm them with unnecessary details.
If you just want the one book that covers everything, then this is the book to have. It doesn’t have the details of the bigger Robie Harris books, but it is simple and gets straight to the point in an age-appropriate way. And I would have to say, it is one of my favourite books and is one I recommend to parents all the time.
Let’s Talk About the Birds and the Bees by Molly Potter is ideal for children between the ages of 5 – 10 years of age.
