Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: American Medical Association Boy's Guide to Becoming a Teen (Paperback)I purchased this book for my twin 10-year-old son's (who will be starting 5th grade in August) to read. They had started to ask me questions about different things they had heard at school from their friends, etc., and I decided to look for books they could read that would give them some correct, age appropriate information.
This book is a great. It describes a variety of physical changes to boy's bodies, the importance of personal hygiene, as well as how a boys voice will begin to change and why. It discusses changes in boys' feelings, hormones (and describes what they are), and it also touches a little bit on girls/dating at the end.
It is not graphic, does not discuss sex; it is age appropriate and well written.
It is also a great "conversation starter" for Mom's like me who have no brothers and did not grow up around boys!

I have twin boys that are also 10(almost 11). I have been looking for a book for them. I am glad you found this helpful! Even my pediatrician could not recommend a book for me!!!!

I agree this is a great book...I did quite a bit of research on these type of books before I decided to order this one in particular. It's a great book. Maybe we should tell our Pediatricians about it! ;)
