sex education books for children


From how babies are made to puberty to sex, this guide has you covered! There are over 200 books in this list, and I keep adding more each month. 

Use the buttons below to navigate to the topics that interest you the most. Each chapter contains the best (and most readily available) sex education books for children from around the world. Some books are classics that are still very relevant today, some have been around for a little while, whilst others are only recently published! You can find an age specific list of sex education books here.

And if you know of a book that isn't included or you would like to see 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.
