Sex Education Books for 3 year olds

A list of sex education books for 3 year olds which means that... yes, you can actually start sex education this young (if not earlier).

Now, before you start to panic and think that your 3 year old is too young for the birds and bees or the facts of life, you can relax. Because none, yes I mean NONE, of these books actually talk about sexual intercourse!

Sex education in the early years isn't about sex at all. It is about other things. If you want to know more about what sex education should look like, then  watch the video in this blogpost about sex education in the home

So you will find sex education books for 3 year olds in this list about naming the private parts of the body.  Books that talk about diversity in families and in children, and that everyone is different and that's okay. Books about body safety and the foundations for protecting children from sexual abuse. Books about pregnancy and age-appropriate information about where babies come from (inside mummy's uterus).

Books about lots of relevant stuff that 3 year olds do need to know about. 

If it is a particular topic that you're interested in, then you'll find books by the topic in the main list of Sex Education Books for Children.

And if you're looking for book for a different aged child, then you'll want to look at the age-appropriate list of sex education books

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.
