Listener Opinions

    " This answers a lot of questions that a lot of other books aimed at the same age group gloss over. In particular I bought it because it doesn't try to pretend that everybody's heterosexual, nor that people only ever have sex to have babies. There is a good discussion of different body shapes and sizes, and a fairly thorough treatment of STDs and of contraception (both of which, however, are slightly dated now). A cartoon bird and bee provide light relief in the form of commentary throughout the book. I'd recommend this to any parent with preteen or early teen children. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tate | 2/4/2014

    " An honest, age-appropriate, and easy to follow guide for young people curious about sex. Covers everything from hetero to homosexuality, STDs, abuse, and pregnancy. "

    " Its Perfectly Normal is a non-fiction book dedicated to growing up and the changes that take place to the teen body. The book explores both phhsical and emotional changes that take place in a young teen during their maturation into adulthood. The author explains in relatively simple language that the changes taking place is "perfectly normal". Adolesence is a difficult time, and I would highly recommend this book as a conversation starter for parents with their young teens. "

    " I love this book! I discovered it when Allen was about 2 years old and decided it would be his 'sex talk' book. Cartoon illustrations, lots of humor and all the information to let them know what it's all about. "

    " My pre-teen daughters refer to this book OFTEN! Great information. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elyse83 | 8/24/2013

    " This frank and open book uses illustrations and simple words to explain the changes of puberty and the beginnings of sexuality to young adults. "

    " My comments about It's Perfectly Normal "

    " Excellent sex-ed book with simple illustrations and easy-to-understand explanations. Wish I would have been able to read it at that crucial age. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jobiska (Cindy) | 1/2/2013

    " With its companion book for younger kids, It's So Amazing, one of the best sex-ed books I know. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 2/9/2012

    " Part of the OWL curriculum... somewhat too detailed in parts for my taste (when reading to an 11-year-old), but the kids really appreciated it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie scully | 7/1/2011

    " Great informational book about sex and sexuality for tweens and teens. Loaded with pictures so no one can say they're not normal. All sizes, shapes and colors! Not titillating, but accepting and understanding of its audience. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Denise | 6/23/2011

    " Bought the previous books in this series and my eldest has been asking to read this one. Made him wait until I noticed definite B.O. wafting from his direction. We talked about the next few years, hair, and deodorant. I'm so happy books like these are available for youngsters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kara | 3/26/2011

    " I got to meet the author in college - guest speaker in a children literature class. Apparently the illustrations were a lot harder than the text. The decision to actually show sex was a big one and the biggest part of showing two naked bodies "doing it" was realizing just how, well, silly sex looks! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mk | 9/10/2010

    " Easy to read, detailed descriptions of the body as it changes to adulthood. Covers a multitude of questions and topics that a young teen would have regarding sex and sexuality. "
