This is a fantastic book that helps children learn about the facts of life with an LDS perspective.

This is the book we LDS parents have been searching for!

As a mother of several pre-teenagers, I have been looking for a book exactly like this one for the past several years. Little did I know that Brad Wilcox was writing it at that very time! Thank you Brad! I've visited several local booksellers and all the books about sex and maturation went totally against our LDS beliefs. My older son and daughter (10 and 11) read it and this is the one book I will keep for my younger children to read when they get older. It approaches maturation in a matter-of-fact manner but does not get too technical. I believe that the facts of life should be taught at home, and this is an excellent resource.
