For ages 9-12. With humour and sensitivity, this book provides no-nonsense answers for children -- and parents -- with questions about sex. Specifically designed for young readers, the book walks children through the wonders of their bodies in a direct, easy-to-read manner. The story begins with Nicholas aged 7, and Jenny ages 5, learning about different types of science in their class-from ecology to the digestive system. Then Meg Hickling, a guest speaker, comes to talk to them about a new type of science. Hickling talks about the "science names" for the children's body parts, about good and bad touches and about making babies.
