Joanna Cole's Asking About Sex & Growing Up is the perfect book to provide answers to preteens' questions about sex. Writing especially for kids ages 8-12, the author uses a question-and-answer format to offer straightforward information on a wide variety of subjects related to sex and puberty.

Information about sex is everywhere. But what kids learn from TV, movies, the internet, and friends is not always a healthy or accurate view of sexuality.

Now revised and updated with current facts, Asking About Sex & Growing Up is a safe, honest, friendly resource to share with preteens. The book is appropriate for both boys and girls. With the approachable, nonjudgmental Q&A format, this is a book that a preteen can read on his or her own. It's also likely to open up healthy, positive conversations with parents and caregivers.
