My 10 year old daughter is very naive and innocent. Waiting for her to ask the questions wasn't going to work, and I now know (based on what she said during our discussions about what her friends had brought up) that it was a good thing not to wait. She goes to a Catholic school and is in what I like to think of has a somewhat protected environment, but kids are kids and it's only natural to talk to friends.

Anyway, I read this book out loud to her and let her stop me to ask questions as we went along. I read the ENTIRE book out loud (ok, I might have skipped some the prayers in the boxes). I think it was important to do the reading myself. It made sure she didn't just skip to the 'good parts' if she read it by herself. I really appreciate how much more articulate the author was then what I probably would have stumbled over and how she gave me the words to frame the discussion in a way that we could discuss sex as a beautiful gift, that is very special and only for two adults in a very committed relationship. I probably would have fudged the flowery talk part of the conversation and just either stated everything too factually or too vaguely. There was plenty of faith-based language, but I didn't feel it got in the way of stating the facts. The book was clear and descriptive without going overboard.

Some of the bold terms (ejaculation) are a little alarming to be discussing after all the time we've spent as parents shielding them from the daily barrage of media, etc. That said, I would rather be the one explaining these terms in a good, healthy way then having her hear a bunch of incorrect, half-truths from the playground, where much of the discussion paints things as 'dirty' or 'bad'.

I really like this whole series and this is the second book I am taking my daughter through. I have the two for boys as well. It is from a Biblical worldview and age appropriate. I only have gone through certain parts with my daughter and will wait till I think she is ready for more detailed info.

This book is written to support both the child and parent. It helps formulate topics for discussion between those in discussion.

I am disgusted with false pretenses and fake parents, with caring in disguise. I find this book inappropriately written; its content does not care about children age 10-12. Be proud of your sexuality??? what's next? be proud if some pedophile is showing interest to you, 10-year old girl? What do we really teach our children? To use condoms at 10 years old? To look at their classmate from a sexual point of view?? The dictionary given there is outrageous! And all these are written under religious umbrella!!! Shame on you! Every parent knows how to explain their child when the time is right. And every parent knows when the time is right: the child comes to his mom. The child does not need sexual propaganda; the child needs caring and protection. Please, please, revealing does not equal protection. Protection is a 24-hr duty of parent. Not a book to read. Let's not further sexualize our children and MORE, let's NOT write about it and make money off it. It will be ireversible one day.
