A wonderful way to make Sex-Ed, *No Big Deal* !! Jul 6, 2006
I highly recommend this book for any parent who wants to make Sex-Ed no big deal! I grew up with this book... and it is ***Awesome***!! The illustrations are gorgeous, but more importantly I think it gives enough information without either grossing the child(ren) out... or leaving them wondering. It's from a Christian perspective and it is written in two parts. The main part is in the larger print and is geared for the younger age level, and the smaller print is for the older ones, and goes into a little more detail. The older text it talks about saving intercourse for the person you're married to. The whole subject is framed in the context of creation, creating families and creating babies. It also has a section on adoption and the fact that Joseph adopted Jesus. Momma started reading us the larger print when we were about three or so, and the larger when we got closer to 10-12 years old. When we were little, she treated it like any other bed-time story.... she kept it up on our shelf, and pulled it down every so often to read it to us before bed. Because she kept it such a casual thing... sex was never was a big deal! I definitely plan on purchasing this book, and using it with my future family!!!
The Wonderful Way That Babies Are Made, Mar 17, 2006
Nicely laid out. I was having trouble getting thru "the talk" with my kids this made it a little easier. Good explanations. I was still a little embarrassed to read it.Presents the act of love making as a gift from God that should be shared within the boundaries of marriage.
The Best Book on How Babies Are Made... EVER!! Oct 7, 2003
When I was a kid my parents bought a few books about the birds/bees that were rather graphic (in my opinion) and left me thinking that in order for a child to be conceived the couple had to be "in love". So when I went shopping for a book to read to my children I read each one with a rather critical eye for the *whole* truth about how babies are conceived. This book covers conception and more in a way that is honest but also age appropriate. My 8 year old daughter has asked some interesting moral questions (related to sex) and this book answers them in a way that I feel is sensitive as well as Biblically sound.
Great for adopted children too! Mar 11, 2002
This is a great book! We have so many books in our home that I hadn't even realized how great this book is. My mom had gotten it and I had totally forgotten about it until my 6 year old grabbed it for a car trip. There's a special section at the end talking about adoption and about how Jesus was adopted by Joseph.It discusses the virgin birth very well which, let's face it,can be a little tricky for any parent. The 2 different texts-large print for ages 3-8 and the smaller print for 9-14-is a great idea.
