If you’re the parent of a boy (or a child with a male body), you will hopefully find this parent guide to puberty books for boys very helpful. As you’re sure to find the perfect puberty book for your child in here!
Books help to make talking about puberty with your child a lot easier. It will provide them with age-appropriate information they can understand and is relevant to their stage of development. Plus the right book will help to prepare them for the changes that will soon be coming his way.
Most of the books that are marketed as being for boys assume that your child has male reproductive organs – penis, testicles, scrotum etc. So they are not what you would call ‘gender-diverse’.
You will find two lists of puberty books for boys in this book review list.
The first list is the books that don’t talk about sex. They only talk about puberty.
The second list is the books that talk about puberty but also talk about sex or sexual intercourse.
So which list should you look at? The puberty books that do or don’t include sex?
That’s up to you! Your child will usually cope with whatever puberty book you give them, but sometimes it is easier to give the books without sex to younger kids. Especially if they are resistant to the thought of puberty or are easily overwhelmed by change.
You can find more books about different topics in the main list of Sex Education Books for Children.
And if you find this list a little overwhelming, you might want to look at the age-appropriate list of sex education books.
You’ll find more information about puberty in my Puberty 101 page.
