Well, we have kids, we know what it takes. But they don’t, and they want to, they ask and ask and.. well, you sometimes are just at a loss for words.
This post is here to help! These books are sex education books for littles. The young ones, the ones that don’t need to know all the details, yet.
Little boys wonder where mommy’s missing parts are.
OR if you’re like my oldest, when he was 4 and I had him in the shower with me he freaked out because of my.. ahem, string, and I had to get it out, NOW.
Safe to say I showered alone from that moment on, no matter how much easier it was to throw the (little) kids in with me.
I’m sure we’ve all had, seen or heard about moments like mine before!
So these books are going to touch on babies, bodies and more. And they’re safe for the little ones. Check them out:
- It’s Perfectly Normal: Changing Bodies, Growing up, Sex, and Sexual Health
- This book is rated ages 4-8. It’s your choice to start them younger but it does touch on puberty, gender identity, sexuality and more. I personally started this book at the later recommended age. Again, this is up to you as a parent/caregiver. It is complete with general body pictures as well as descriptions.
- Amazing you!: Getting Smart About Your Private Parts
- Geared towards ages 3-7, this book talks about body parts, curiosity about babies and skips the intercourse part. This one is good for the littles. It doesn’t show naked pictures but helps with understandings. Definitely recommended.
- What Makes a Baby
- The question every child asks at LEAST once. This book is geared for ages 3-8. Definitely a good one to explain how babies are made. Sperm, eggs and cute little animated pictures.
- What’s the Big Secret?: Talking about Sex with Girls and Boys
- Recommended for ages 3-7. This one gets into anatomy as well as feelings and definitions to words kids may not know, including belly button logic. 🙂 Safe animations for the little ones.
- Where Willy Went…: The Big Story of a Little Sperm!
- Age range 3-8 (but reviews have read to younger and older kids and liked it). First of all, I love the title. And the picture on the front of the book? Well, kinda close to true haha. This is a humorous book helping you to answer your little ones questions and talk about sperm in a non threatening way.
- I Said No! A Kid-to-kid Guide to Keeping Private Parts Private
- Recommended ages 4+. This is a great book and concept. No means no and this book shows them that it’s ok and even a good thing to say no, and stick to your word. This book is about private parts but the message can be spread further, helping kids to say no to others when they mean it.
I’ve touched on most of the subjects based on this age range. The questions we get asked over and over again and may not know exactly how to answer or explain. Grab one or a few of these books to help you. The pictures will help you easily explain it to your little ones.
Besides that, starting them young on the subject will normalize it with them, making it easier for you to talk to them about it especially when they’re older and really need guidance to be safe in this area.
Grab this while they’re learning.
Have you read any of these books?
