Does your child have questions about their body? Want some help starting the conversation around puberty and what’s happening? Put the learning in their hands with It’s So Amazing, a book about bodies and growing up from Robie H. Harris and Michael Emberley.
If you loved the simplicity and straightforward info presented in It’s Not the Stork!, this book goes one step further. It has much denser text, packed full of info on reproduction, changing bodies, birth, families and much more. With cartoon type illustrations kids can enjoy, and a lightweight tone, it tackles some heavy topics.
My oldest son voluntarily reads this book on his own, and I love that he has resources I trust to seek out the information he needs. You can also read it together with your kids if you prefer. Since it has lots of text, younger kids may need help getting through longer paragraphs. Older kids can read whatever section they want, without having to go from cover to cover in one sitting.
If your kid has questions and you want a guide to answering them, or if you’d like a great tool for learning more about this touchy area, don’t hesitate to get a copy of It’s So Amazing!
