   WARNING! This book needs supervision
I don't think this book was meant for the school library. This book should be read with children and young adults. The drawings are graphic and should not be handled by inexperienced people. Our Jr. High School has a book on it's shelves because of the high reviews and the kids check it out to pass on information. The pictures get a lot of exposure but it isn't being read. You should check with your school library for this book.

   Information is Power
People think that teaching children the correct name for body parts and how they work is dangerous. It's almost like they don't want children to know how to report abuse. I don't want my child to learn myths from friends and see adult material on the internet. This is a great book if you understand that knowing something isn't the same as doing something and you are not afraid of your own body.

   Wouldn’t buy this sexual propaganda
I looked at it in the library, because I wouldn't want my money going to this. There is a book about sexual propaganda.

   Too advanced for children.
It's too advanced for children. Before a child looks at a book, a parent should make sure it's right for them.

   Zero stars
There are no stars. It was a disgrace. It was great for my daughter to read "It's Not the Stork" several years ago, but I am disappointed that this book goes into so much detail. Absolutely not, for the age group of 10 to 14 years olds!

   this book is repugnant....
It would be very sad and disgusting to allow something like this in a place where young children are allowed. There is nothing normal about the lifestyles. This nation has fallen far from what is right and decent. Is there no shame?

   100% trash
It's absolutely disgusting. People buy this for their kids. It's cartoons. What's the actual F?

   This book is in schools now
There is a page on Facebook called "PrairieU" that talks about how a school is showing a book to kids. To me it is called pedophilia. It is not ok for adults that are not there to show kids this.

   Wish I read this book growing up
The recommendation from the article was that parents should be less vague about sex-ed, puberty, STDs, birth control, and other topics. The book covers all that and more in a friendly, neutral tone, with sections on sexual abuse, social media, and the Internet in general. I thought I had done a pretty good job with direct, scientific descriptions, but this is more of a teacher-type tone. It is similar to your sixth-grade teacher and Dr. Ruth. If your kid doesn't get the info from you or a book like this, they will inevitably get it somewhere else and it will often be wrong, or too late to prevent a larger issue.

   Deserves no stars
I heard about the book after studying it. This is for children 10 years old. There are pictures of naked children and adults with all of the body parts exposed. There are pictures of a boy and a girl masturbating, a girl with pubic hair exposing her genitalia, a boy with erections, and a girl with pubic hair. I could continue. I wouldn't have been prepared for any of this at 10 years old. My mother gave me a book when I was young. It began with birds and the bees and moved on to male and female sex. The book depicts two people in a bed. There would be hell to pay if they introduced this in my child's school. I had 3 sons and they escaped this craziness.
