How You Are Changing Mar 3, 2006
My husband and I have read through the book and feel that this is the place to pick up where previous discussions have ended. Having a biblical basis was very important to us and this book does so wonderfully.
WOW Nov 1, 2005
This has so much info in it, I am afraid it had a little too much for my 11 year old. She became a bit nervous at some things I thought she would not. I would not let a child read it alone, as suggested, until a parent has read it first and made sure there is nothing too mature for the individual child.

I've been searching for just the right book for my 11 year old son and this is one has just the right look and information I wanted for him. Many other books were way too long, some with pages in the hundreds and other books were too immature for his age. This is a great beginner book for covering all of the facts and terms. An 8 yr. old would need help reading it but an 11 yr. old could read it alone. I think it would be fine even for 12-13 who hasn't learned much about reproduction and puberty. The illustrations are simple but accurate, not like some I've seen that are more like from a medical textbook or cartoonish. There is a glossary with pronunciations and definitions. I like that it is Christian and family based. It's everything I was looking for!!

This book focuses on health and development with a beautiful Christian perspective on the changing bodies of adolescents. It gives the young reader plenty of information on understanding his or her own body. It introduces areas of social concern, such as homosexuality and pre-marital sex, but mainly focuses on the young reader and how to understand his or her own body. Unlike so many books that give "way too much information" this is a nice option for parents who just want to start with the basics.

I was unprepared for the very personal style of the book: "The sperm cell from which you grew was made in one of your father's testicles." Some of my children are adopted, and the sperm cell that God used to make them was NOT made in one of their father's testicles. This can be a touchy area for some adoptive children.
