Format: Paperback
It is important that children learn the proper words to describe body parts including the anus and genitals. 'Bellybuttons' does this in the same format as any childrens book in a very matter of fact style. Surprisingly, many children enter adolescence and then early adulthood lacking a proper means to fully communicate about their own and other's bodies. Without these tools, children learn to be ashamed and frightened of their intimate body parts. This is a book that can be read to even young children that will foster not only anatomy education, but establishes the parent as a supportive person to whom a child can openly discuss sexuality.

If you want to see how young children might react to being read this book, then watch the video of a grandmother reading it to her grandchildren. I think that we have a dearth of role models for discussing anatomy with children. The video provides a style of reading the book that can be very helpful for shy parents.

'Bellybuttons' should be considered one of the must read books for children.

This book, BELLYBUTTONS ARE NAVELS, is a natural, appropriate, healthy book for parents to develop comfort "talking" (reading) to their young child or young children about their bodies -- one of the important stages in general and sexual health. I think it is an excellent book to read -- along with the other books parents read for quality time with thier kids! Thanks to Dr. Mark Schoen! Five stars!

This book is just a back and forth what-is-this conversation between a brother and sister at bath time and allows parents to read to children in a matter-of-fact way without bringing special attention to any one part. Two things that annoyed me, number one the grey cat that is in the bathroom with the children. This distracted my toddler to no end when we first started reading it. What was the purpose of including it? The second is little girl's lips when she pointed out her mouth; they look exaggerated and like they have way too much pink lipstick on and I thought it was an inappropriate illustration.

Other than that, it's nothing special but that's probably just what it needs to be. My toddler, several months after getting this book, wanted to read this and another book about having a new baby in the house, all day today.

I use this book a lot both in education classes and with parent groups. I especially use it with the film on sexsmartfilms.com.
