This book must be understood not simply as art, but as a psychological statement, namely that sexuality exists within each of us from infancy on and parents and society deny that at their own risk.
When I was the age of the girls in this book there was no one with the courage to come forward and openly depict the flowering of female sexuality. I lived with confusion and shame about my body and my desires, hurtful feelings that lasted until I was well into my adulthood.
I came across this book in a store one day while looking for something else. I spotted the title and I vaguely remembered a news story about some people wanting to ban it, so I thought I would look at it out of curiosity. The images in it were so beautiful I almost started to cry right there, it was as though I found vindication for the very core of my being.
After taking it home, I decided to share it with my nine-year old daughter with whom I had just recently had "The Talk". It was wonderful being able to show her how her body would change and how she would be beautiful even as she changed from a girl into a woman. It is true there are already books out there that are supposed to address the issue, but so often they take a clinical approach that is scary in its own right.Lesen Sie weiter... ›
There should be no shame in admitting that the artist's intent in creating these images is to inspire sexual feelings for his subjects. Can one look, for example, at the photo on page 140 (captioned "Am I only 15? Am I really still a silly little school girl?") and not feel some twinge of longing? Is that not the dictionary definition of "pornography" or "erotic"? Now I can certainly agree that it is not "hard-core" pornography, but why is the term "pornography" being treated as a pejorative in these reviews?
It's really quite sad that over the past couple decades Americans have become so phobic about children's sexuality that even people who enjoy and appreciate this book cannot bring themselves to admit it. Meanwhile, most of the critical reviews posted here don't even indicate that the writers have actually looked at the book, they just know it's "bad" or "evil" because it suggests that children might be human beings along with all that implies. This book is a daring last line of defense against the utter pablumification and disneyfication that threatens to consume American culture. I would strongly encourage anyone to read this book to challenge the prevailing cultural mores of puritainism.

just wanted to write a rewiew of this book-some may think this is porno, but it's not. i have seen a few samples of pictures from this book, and they are, in no way, pornographic! Lesen Sie weiter...Am 30. Januar 2000 veröffentlicht
David Hamilton has created a wonderful book that is, admittedly, not for everyone. Yet, even I object to the picture on the last book which shows a man in bed with a young girl. Lesen Sie weiter...Am 4. November 1999 veröffentlicht

This book is a fascinating study of the budding female form. Only those with prurient intentions themselves can be offended by it. I cannot recommend it highly enough.Am 25. Mai 1999 veröffentlicht
