"An incredible book on death, discussing how "the next place" will be different, offering no solid answers but providing a sense of peace. It gets good reviews from everyone from conservative Christians, to atheists, to people who believe in reincarnation. The illustrations are beautiful and 90% of what make this book so powerful and reassuring in the face of the unknown."
"This book discusses the natural life cycle of all plants, animals, and yes, humans. It presents death as an intrinsic and natural part of life. If you're wanting something more "soft and reassuring," try The Next Place. But if you're wanting something "gentle but realistic," this is a good choice."
"A classic book about death, this talks about Freddie the leaf's life cycle and emotions as he watches the leaves around him grow, then age and die, as he prepares to do the same, with some trepidation. It's not a bad choice, even though I personally found the photography a bit underwhelming."
"A good starter book for toddlers, this talks about "good touch" and "bad touch" and introduces the "swimsuit rule" (body parts covered by a swimsuit are private). It does say that kids should never have to be touched when they don't want to (even kisses from grandma). It also discusses "helpful touch" like doctors and potty training."
"Great for a very-first discussion on sex. It's illustrated and fun, providing details without spending too much time on them, focusing more on the broader picture (how babies gestate, multiple births, different types of families, etc.). It has 2-3 pages giving accurate names for body parts, and about 7 words describing the actual sex act, and that particular illustration obscured by a blanket."
"A great approach to sex ed, this is for children who are a little bit older. It has 3-4 illustrations naming the body parts in detail, and on different pages has line drawings, including people having sex in different positions. So while the focus is on "what sex is/means" rather than techniques, it may be better to save this one until kids are older, or have already been exposed to the basics."
