Reviews - What do customers think about Almost 12?

I read this book myself at age 11  Jul 28, 2006
My mother gave this book to me when I was 11 years old. Unfortunately, I think a more appropriate age would've been 9 or 10, before my perceptions of sex were influenced by peers. My own daughter is 8 years old, and I intend to share this book with her now. While some reviewers complain about the lack of content, as an 11 year old child I felt it provided ample information. My mother always kept an "open door policy" when it came to discussing sex, so additional questions I had were answered by her. That is how it should be. The book should be used as a tool to introduce sex, not a concise encyclopedia of sex and morality. I'm buying several copies, by the way, to share with my friends who also have children expressing curiosity about sex. And I hope the book is as helpful to my daughter as it was to me all those years ago.
This book taught me  Sep 23, 2003
I read this book just before turing twelve over a decade ago. If you are a religious person and want to raise your children with good Christian valuse, this book is excelent. I am grateful that my parents used it to teach me about sex.
Great Tool for Parents  Jun 24, 2000
I found this book to be a great parental tool. It is age appropriate sex education from a Christian perspective. It was an excellent resource.
For Christians Only  Apr 5, 2000
I didn't realize when I bought this book that it was so oriented toward a strict religious view of sex. I believe it is detrimental to children developing today to have so many "forbiddens" and to teach them that sexual orientations different from the norm are wrong. This book tries to take the parent's place and teach morals directly to the child. If you buy the book, make sure to read it before giving it to your child to read, you may find out your child is learning exactly the opposite of what you want him or her to know.
This book is an affront to ANY parent or pre-teen!  Jun 14, 1999
Although the material is cloaked in conservative Christian words, only the most narrow-minded Christian could agree with the author's outlandish "commandments" disguised as "God's Word". As a Christian, I was very offended for the author to claim to be THE intrepeter of God's word.

The information presented is very minimalistic, concerning itself only with the basic conception and birth process. The author's only attempts to address children's questions about sexual feelings, masturbation, homosexuality, etc. is a simplistic "I (the author, speaking for God) say it is a sin."

The author, quite forcefully, attempts to replace parental responsibility of instilling morality in children, with preaching his own views, evangilizing that to not follow his views is sinful and punishable by eternal damnation. He even goes so far as to mock the Supreme Court of the United States!

Highly recommended to avoid!
