Sex Education Books for 7 year olds

You'll find a book that will satisfy the curiosity of any 7 year old, in this list of sex education books for 7 year olds. 

Seven is a great age to be talking about the birds and bees or the facts of life.


Because they haven't  yet reached that age where they think parent sex is just 'totally gross' or 'disgusting'.  At this age they still listen to what you say and want to ask you questions. And they accept what you say and don't usually question it too much. Which means that talking to them about tricky topics, like how babies are made, can be made a lot easier with a good sex education book!

This list of sex education books for 7 year olds is comprehensive and covers every topic that is considered a part of sex education.  You will find books that talk about sex education  in general. Some are highly detailed, whereas others just provide the basics (or what kids need to know instead of telling them absolutely everything). You'll also find many books that focus on just the one topic, like consent,  online safety or how babies are made. 

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.

Sex Educator Recommendations

A warning!

There are a lot of books in this list on a wide range of topics that are relevant to sex education. Which means you'll find books on a lot of different topics, like consent, body safety, diversity families and more. 

So you might feel overwhelmed and not quite sure where to start!

So if you can only buy 1 -5 books, what should you buy for a 7 year old?

If you want a book that covers everything in the one book, then my favourite is Let's talk about the birds and bees.   A more detailed version is It's so amazing

Books that only talk about the different ways babies are made (including sex) that I really like are So that's where I came from or Where Did I really come from.

Tell me about sex grandma talks about sex but focuses on all the other parts (rather than the actual act).
