The best puberty books for 14 year olds

There are still some puberty books that are suitable for 14 year olds.  They talk about puberty, but they also talk about all the other things that go with puberty - love, sex, relationships, consent, porn, sexting, STis and much more! 

You'll find the puberty books for 14 year olds broken into two parts ie boys (or males) and girls (or females). 

You'll find more information about puberty in my Puberty 101 page.

Sex Educator Recommendations

There are a lot of puberty books in this list which means it will be hard to make a choice.


So because you all keep on pestering me I thought I would share the books that I always seem to keep on recommending for 14 year olds. 


If you want a 'boy' book, then  you might like Guy Talk  or What's Going on Down There as they are simple but comprehensive. Puberty Boy is a really nice informative book that has a lot of information that is presented in a really nice way.


If you want a 'girl' book, then you might like Girl Talk or The Period Book (which is more about puberty than just periods). Puberty Girl is also a really nice book that is quite detailed and has a lovely gentle approach (plus it doesn't talk about sex).


 Help Your Kids With Growing Up is very factual and more like a fact book than a puberty book.

If you get stuck and feel that you need some extra support with talking to your child about puberty, then my book, Boy Puberty – How to talk about puberty and sex with your tween boy or Girl Puberty - How to talk about puberty and sex with your tween girl, may be helpful.
