Sex education for all ages

It's Not the Stork: A Book About Girls, Boys, Babies, Bodies, Families and Friends
by Robie H. Harris and Michael Emberley

Young children are curious about everything, especially their bodies. It's Not the Stork helps answer questions about the differences and similarities between boys and girls, how babies are made, and where they come from. Through friendly artwork and accessible language, the authors provide straightforward explanations in a reassuring, respectful manner. Two cartoon characters, a bird and a bee, add comic relief and give voice to a child's emotions and reactions. For ages 4 and up.

Another excellent book about human reproduction. Additional information covers sex, love, chromosomes, adoption, and HIV. For ages 7 and up.

For older children, It's Perfectly Normal covers sexuality, puberty, birth control, STDs, HIV, and internet safety. Ages 10 and up.
