Reviews - What do customers think about Lintball Leo's Not So Stupid Questions About Your?
A must have! Feb 19, 2007
I bought this book for my 9 year old son and I would highly recommend this to any parent of a tween boy. Yes, it is very biblically based and that is what is so great about it. Our kids are so inindated with what the world thinks these days, that's it's great to read something that is not based on worldly thinking. And, these are some pretty important subjects.
We had our son read the book first and then we asked him if he had any questions. At first, he did not, but as time as gone on, he has had some questions. The questions are trickling in, but at least he has some idea of what he is asking about.
Useful for presenting different opinions Jan 9, 2007
I got this book for my 10 year old nephew. I read it all before giving it to him. He really didn't seem very interested just yet, but I think he will go back to this in a year or so. When I gave it to him, we talked about how this book gave a lot of facts about boys' bodies, but it also gave a lot of opinions about moral issues and things like that. I explained that I agree with some of the opinions, but disagree with others. I think this book is good for teaching kids that people have many different viewpoints on this topic and ultimately they will have to choose their own and it's ok if it's different than mine.
boys Jan 6, 2007
My boys read this book together and talked about all their weird things they are going through. It opened up conversation. Don't agree with sex before marriage. So we discussed it and the problems with it.
Great for young boys from religious families Oct 14, 2006
I should preface my review by saying that the description this site gives does say this talks about the "body from a biblical perspective", but I was surprised to the extent God and the Bible are referenced because we heard good things about this book in other places that weren't obviously religiously oriented. We are not a particularly religious family although we don't rebel about God being invoked; but in this book bible references are everywhere. We are returning the book. We dock it a star because we feel the description doesn't adequately say how much bible is in this book (it is just mentioned in one sentence on the "back cover"). We give it four stars because it is otherwise a fun concept and gives good advise.
An example is when the author talks about the awkwardness that some boys feel when their bodies are changing. He writes something to the effect that "God made our bodies differently and therefore it is normal that you might look different than others." I would have preferred simply "Our bodies are made differently and therefore it is normal that you might look different than others."
There aren't any particular things we disagree with, the points and values in the book (including those related to masturbation) are fairly moderate and there is no fire and brimstone. It is just that if you aren't a family that would naturally look up a bible verse (which are referenced on most pages), this has too much.
Great For Young Boys Sep 19, 2004
I have a son of my own, and he loved this book. We had a "deep" conversation about the book. Those parents out there with boys, I reccommend this book to them and you.
