Sex Education Books for 9 year olds

You'll find some really good sex education books for 9 year olds  in this list, that will help you with talking to your child about the birds and bees or the facts  of life

Some 9 year olds are starting to show the first signs of pubery, which means that it is time to start talking to your child about puberty and growing up. If you are unsure about what signs to look out for, you can learn more about the first signs of puberty in girls and the first signs of puberty in boys, in these blogposts. 

So you will find a few puberty books in this list of sex education books for 9 year olds.  You'll also find books about sexual intercourse, consent, pornography, cybersafety, gender, masturbation, same-sex relationships and more. You're sure to find a book that  will suit you and your child. 

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.
