Levi Sprocket: What’s in my Pocket by Debi Slinger prepares boys for puberty by telling the story of what puberty is like for a boy as he goes through it.
Most books about puberty are nonfiction (full of facts) instead of fiction which tells a story. So it is very unusual to find a book that talks about puberty as a story but also teaches. This story does that, with the story of a boy as he deals with being smelly, wet dreams and a broken voice. The author also discusses how to manage the many changes that will happen, and lets them know that they aren’t alone as other boys (and girls too) are also going through the same thing.
This is a good book to look at if your tween finds fact filled books a bit of a bore.
Sexual intercourse is NOT talked about in this book.
Levi Sprocket: What’s in my Pocket by Debi Slinger is ideal for children between the ages of 11 – 13 years of age. Possibly younger if they are a good reader.
