Sex Education Books for 6 year olds

If you're looking for a book to help you with talking to your 6 year old child about the birds and bees, then you will want to have a look at this list of sex education books for 6 year olds. It includes all of the most popular and well-respected books on this topic. Plus some that are not as well known but are equally as good!

This is an age where books can help parents out a lot! Six year olds are often thinkers who spend a lot of time pondering the mysteries of the world. And one of the greatest mysteries is about where babies come from or how are babies made. The right book means that you don't have to struggle with working what you can (and can't) say to your child. 

You'll find  a wide range of sex education books for 6 year olds in this list. Some are very general and cover absolutely everything. Whereas others may be more specific and just talk about the one topic, like pregnancy, body parts or families. 

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.
