Sex Education Books for 4 year olds

There are some fantastic sex education books for 4 year olds that will help you with talking to your child about the birds and bees or the facts of life.

Especially if you have a 4 year old who is starting to ask questions about where babies come from or how babies are made

Books can help with answering some of these trickier conversations. They have pictures that will engage your child and age-appropriate information that your child will understand. 

You will find a wide range of sex education books for 4 year olds in this list, that will help you to talk with your child about absolutely anything to do with sex education. 

You'll find some books about pregnancy and where babies come from. Most (if not all) of the books about where babies come from don't talk about sexual intercourse. Instead they just explain that  a baby comes from inside the mummy and that it takes a part from a male and a female to make a baby. 

You'll also find books that name the private body parts, as well as talk about diversity, cybersafety, pornography, body safety, families, gender and much, much more!

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.

These are some of the many sex education books for 4 year olds 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 sex education books for 4 year olds, you may also be interested in books on other topics too. You can find many of them listed in my sex education book review site.
