Sex education books for children
A Guide for Parents
From how babies are made to puberty to sex, this guide has you covered! There are now over 400 books in this list, and I keep adding more each month (sorry, but they keep on publishing them!)
You’ll find a video review of each book, with many also including a written review. Many parents have asked me for a transcription of the videos, so they are slowly being added.
You will only find books included that are still available at book shops. There are a couple of books included that you can’t buy new (but you can buy secondhand through Ebay or Abebooks ) but they are so good that I had to include them (one is a 3D pop up book of sex!).
You can find a huge list of every individual sex education book that I have reviewed as well as books sorted into over 30 different sex education topics.
You’ll also find age specific book lists, from babies all the way up to kids aged 14 and older! And if you’ve got a child going through puberty, you’ll also find puberty books sorted into the different ages as well. You’ll also find a list of other helpful sex education resources.
If you’re unsure about the best way to read these types of books with kids, in this article you’ll discover the secret of reading sex education books for kids.
And if you know of a book that isn’t included or should be included, please do let me know!
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.

Age-specific book lists
Books for different aged children
Each individual book review will include a suggested age range, but I have also sorted them into age-specific lists (because so many parents kept asking me for it).

You won’t find puberty books in these lists. They are in the puberty list, below this one.
