Jun 30, 2007Ok, here is what happened: in hopes of avoiding any awkward talks, my mother dealt with her two pubescent children by buying us books. My brother got What's Happening To My Body Book For Boys, I got What's Happening to My Body Book For Girls. We both read our respective gifts avidly. Then we switched.
Nov 14, 2007I read this while I was growing up.
Aug 26, 2013Kids are getting the information from disreputable sources, so in light of that, I'd rather they get it from a decent, if graphic and straightforward text source. At least this information is correct. This is good and appropriately geared toward middle school students - but parents know their kids best, should preview this before handing it to kids and if only part of the book works for their purposes, then there's no rules saying they have to use the whole thing.

I for one think it's a good idea to have honest, straightforward and judgement free texts out there for adolescents to use...instead of shady internet sources. ...more
Mar 21, 2016This is a great book geared to boys age 11 and up (younger if they've begun puberty or are interested). Puberty is explained in age appropriate, matter-of-fact way. There are dozens of illustrations mixed in with the text to answer most questions. All the standard info is covered here. There is a short chapter at the end about what girls experience in puberty.
Jan 11, 2009I bought this book for Tyler. Since I know my hubby was not about to have "the talk" with him. We are reading it together and I am really happy with the fact that it explains things that I never had to go through. Tyler seems to really have an understanding and has lots of questions (which is sometimes uncomfortable), but the book really helps.
Jan 07, 2016I've found out new things and I think it would be great for the target audience. I know it is way to early for us (baby is not even born yet but we do know it is going to be a boy) but it was on sale and I wanted to read it to know how to deal with different questions when they will arise. Its target is 9-15 year old boys and their parents:)
Apr 03, 2013Maybe not for the elementary classroom but possibly a parent recommendation. It seems most children are getting their information from youtube or another internet source. Having this book lying around may spark a boys interest and inform a parent of their own child's development.
Feb 18, 2013Great resource. We've already covered the basics with our son, so I think we'll hold off and get into this book when he's 13-ish when more of these changes and questions will be more relevant. It's a lot of information!!
Mar 18, 2014Good solid information -- plus some interesting facts about circumcised vs. uncircumcised penises.
Jun 28, 2015An excellent book about puberty aimed at pre-teen boys. It's explicit and openly discusses issues that come up with puberty, so more conservative families might not like this, but I think this information is necessary. It not only covers the stages of puberty for boys in great detail (including illustrations), there's a section that reviews stages of puberty in girls. The book is grounded, fact-based discussion about all the various ways that puberty might get talked about at school amongst An excellent book about puberty aimed at pre-teen boys.

It not only covers the stages of puberty for boys in great detail (including illustrations), there's a section that reviews stages of puberty in girls. The book is grounded, fact-based discussion about all the various ways that puberty might get talked about at school amongst peers, and corrects common misconceptions, as well as puts to rest fears about being "abnormal" for not developing at the same rate as other boys. I recommend parents review this before handing it over to their sons, and be open to answering questions after your child has read it - if they have any. It's pretty thorough. we treated this as a follow-up book for our son. We gave him less detailed books aimed at younger boys a couple of years ago when he started to become aware of and curious about just puberty. Now that the basics of biological reproduction and stages of development have been covered at school, it became clear it was time to fill in the gaps. ...more
Oct 23, 2012Read this with my twelve year old son and we both loved it! It helped turn what could have been an awkward situation into a fun, interesting, and a great bonding experience.
Oct 16, 2017Perfect book to start conversation with my kids. I bought the one for boys for my son and the girls for my daughter. I read them both first. Then took a Saturday and had them each read their own. Then I had them switch books and read the others. After that we sat together and talked about what we'd read. It was fantastic.
May 14, 2013Really good book about puberty for boys. Graphic and detailed, it does lay it all out there, but in a very matter-of-fact and easily readable way. I didn't love that all the slang was included (but I don't love slang anyway, and I guess I'd rather him hear it from me and understand what it means and NOT USE IT than not). Geared toward middle schoolers but thought I'd preview. This is probably one that I'll purchase so we can continue our discussions.
Nov 05, 2014My daughter's pediatrician recommended the corresponding book for girls, so I decided to read them both. I will not be having my son read it yet, but I did think it was well-written and useful for boys who have already started developing and experiencing signs of puberty.
Jun 23, 2018I read this book as an assignment for a class on banned and challenged books. My desire is to teach middle school and I figured a refresher on puberty would be a good idea. Depending on what exactly I teach, this may end up being a reference book on my bookshelf that I could loan out. If I teach elementary, I may grab it for like 5th grade, but I felt that the target audience was boys aged 10-15.
Mar 28, 2017I almost teared up seeing the cover.
Jul 12, 2018Radiolab asked listeners for their sex ed recommendations.
Feb 19, 2010Way too intense for my 11 year-old, or for me as his friend and babysitter. I noticed she has a book for younger boys, I'm going to check that out instead. I have ti say that it would be a pretty studious teen who would actually read this text-intensive book, but it certainly has a lot of good information.
Feb 04, 2009An intelligent, helpful guide for kids entering puberty. It explains body maturation for both boys and girls bodies-a good thing since kids are curious about what happens to each. One complaint: the book tends to downplay the embarrasment and discomfort of puberty, which is why I only gave it 3 stars. Still, a useful guide for kids and their parents.
Apr 12, 2009I think this book is helpfull for boys that are learning about them self. The wrote this book with information about puberty and your privite stuff. (you know what I mean!)It also has info about girls. The way I LIked the author doing this book is that she asked some ? and responed back. I think ya guys now this book.
Dec 20, 2007i dont like this book at all especially since im a boy and NOT GAY! no offence to the author but its kinda sick and perverted.i mean how did you learn all thise gross information did you look down a girls skirt and look up a boys ass. EWWWWWWWWW!
