This had been on my kids bookshelf for almost two years. They are 6 and 4. I bought it for them when my oldest started asking questions. This nook is written for kids. I noticed some reviews calling it borderline pornographic and saying that it made sex seem good. Sex is good and more importantly it is how we all got here thus part of the book. The book clearly states that sex feels like "tickling" and that is done between married people who love each other. As for being borderline pornographic it does have cartoon drawings of naked people and tells human body parts. It also has a picture of two people in bed together, under covers.
The book also covers the developing fetus, showing size and changes over the 9 months.
It is well written and appropriate for children. It has also been around for years, my brother had it 30 years ago when he was 5.
My suggestion to parents who are unsure. Buy it, read it, and if you think it is too much for your child, put it on a shelf until he or she is ready for it after all, wouldn't you prefer your child learns about it from you instead of on the he playground at school, or from television.
Well, the contents it's kinda bit 'too detailed'...apart from that it's a good read.
