It is very cleverly done in such a way as to keep a pre-teen engaged in the reading.

Additionally, the book uses a dialogue of question and answer type conversations that may help prompt some wonderful and open discussions for parents and their sons.

I appreciate the fun nature and Christian approach to this book and think it is a great start to teaching my son about his body and purity.

Format: Paperback
This books is a great resource for parents of boys in those precarious "pre-teen" years. Although lighthearted, the book addresses nearly every question boys this age might come across when transitioning through puberty. The book's emphasis on Biblical principles and the concept of purity of mind and body is a consistent theme. Additionally, the book uses a dialogue of question and answer type conversations that may help prompt some wonderful and open discussions for parents and their sons.

Format: Paperback
That's what it says on the book and that is exactly the case with my son. I have 3 so this book will be well used! I understand some of the negative comments regarding the amount of biblical perspective in the book. I however, bought the book from a Christian book store so I already knew what I was getting. Buying a book like this off of Amazon makes it tricky. I don't think amazon was trying to deceive anyone at all nor the publishers. There are many books that may appeal to me by the description on amazon - but if I am unfamiliar with the publisher/author I always look further into it just to be sure I am not bringing advice in to the family from a religious source that I do not agree with. If I had first read about this book here at Amazon, I would have assumed it was a Biblically based book because the author is described as being a part of Focus on the Family and the publisher is Zonderkids - both of which I am familiar with as a Christian consumer. I can understand that that may not be as obvious to a non-Christian. Having said that, however, unless a person just flat out doesn't believe that GOD created the universe and every human on earth... I wouldn't think this would be too offensive only because if you agree that God created all of us - then it would seem appropriate to see what He had intended for us and our bodies.... regardless of whether or not you choose to read the Bible routinely or claim Christ as your Saviour. Can't it be as simple as "God created man and woman therefore he is the ultimate teacher regarding our bodies?" (A person who denies God created the universe would probably not like this book.) Nonetheless - the information is fantasitic and it covers topics that can be really hard to talk to your kids about - especially if they are very private. It is very cleverly done in such a way as to keep a pre-teen engaged in the reading.

I have a 12 year old son who is beginning to go through the changes of puberty. Since I am not a boy, I had no idea what questions he might have or what he might be going through. This book answers all the questions he might have in a clear, sensitive way with funny cartoons and lighthearted words that he is actually interested in reading. I also appreciate that it is from a Christian perspective. I'm not sure what I would have done without it.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book for my 9 year old son and I would highly recommend this to any parent of a tween boy. Yes, it is very biblically based and that is what is so great about it. Our kids are so inindated with what the world thinks these days, that's it's great to read something that is not based on worldly thinking. And, these are some pretty important subjects.

We had our son read the book first and then we asked him if he had any questions. At first, he did not, but as time as gone on, he has had some questions. The questions are trickling in, but at least he has some idea of what he is asking about.

This book was recommended to us by our family Dr. let me preface this with the disclaimer that he. & we, are Christians :-)

So we had expectations that this would address these subjects from a "Christian" viewpoint. Which it does. Not really from ANY specific "religion", just an over all pointing back to the what the Bible has to contribute to some of the subjects touched upon. It is not trying to convert anyone into any specific religion or anything like that. It just takes it for granted that you know where their views are coming from. IF you are adamant about NOT wanting to hear how someone with a belief in the God of the Bible thinks, then do not get this book! Even though I do not believe in all "views" expressed by the author, it was a good "jumping" off point to open the discussions with my sons (I have 5!) Each one picked out different things that stood out to them to "clarify",
so we feel it is GREAT, IF you are wanting something like that.

I have a son of my own, and he loved this book. We had a "deep" conversation about the book. Those parents out there with boys, I reccommend this book to them and you.

I bought this book for my 10.5 year old and read it twice before diciding if I would give it to him. Considering my 10 year old's maturity level, I decided to allow him to read the first 8 chapters as chapter 9 was too much info for my 10 year old at this time. I appreciate the fun nature and Christian approach to this book and think it is a great start to teaching my son about his body and purity.

My 8 year old loved the humor in the book, and he appreciated all the important, hard to just "bring up" information that it gave him. I liked the good information that was given, but not "too much" for this age group! I'd definately recommend this book to anyone with a little boy!
