Item description for Let's Talk About S-E-X: A Guide for Kids 9 to 12 and Their Parents by Sam Gitchel & Lorri Foster...
Overview Provides an introduction to human sexual development and sexuality meant to be read together by a parent and child, with a section that provides guidance for parents.
Sex remains one of the least comfortable — and thus least discussed — topics between parents and children. Even the most enlightened parent can get queasy at the prospect of "the talk," despite its importance in helping youngsters become well-informed teens and responsible adults. Let's Talk About S-E-X is a short, illustrated book that parent and child can sit down and read together. First created by Planned Parenthood in the 1980s, and taking a simple, factual approach to the subject, the book makes that crucial conversation possible and even enjoyable by encouraging open dialogue; offering clear, correct information; and giving strategies for age-appropriate discussions that neither judge nor frighten. The book discusses feelings, what's normal, how and why the body changes, making sense of love and sex, STDs, and much more. The simple language and illustrations invite young readers to revisit the information if they have not absorbed it all in one sitting.

Never buy! Aug 6, 2007
Even if this is a good book I would never buy a book published by Planned Parenthood...an organization that supports abortion.
disappointing Feb 3, 2007
I purchased this book for my 10 year old son as a basis for discussion for 'the talk'. I found the information provided therein deficient in several categories. There are actually only a couple pages that are devoted to any kind of description or explanation of the sex act itself, and those are non-illustrated and very shallow. The book is much more geared to describing male and female changes during puberty and of course, as a publication of Planned Parenthood, spends considerable time on contraception, STDs, and other topics which are not perhaps reflected in the book's misleading title. I would have returned the book but the return shipping fee would not have justified that process as it would have been more than one-half the cost of the book itself. I would recommend against this book for any purpose.
Good product Jan 7, 2007
It is a good and useful product for teaching children. The kids can actually read parts of it themselves if they are uncomfortable reading it with you.
