“Children deserve correct answers to their questions in clear, basic terms...In addition to talking to your child about the inevitability of puberty, give him books about the topic so he can explore the topic on his own…The Boy’s Body Book, by Kelli Dunham, is a great introductory guide to questions relating to puberty, relationships, bullying, school pressure, peer pressure, healthy living, and stressful situations. " (Lauren Knight, The Washington Post)
“A great buy for any parent worried about navigating puberty and everything that comes with it.” (Clint Edwards, No Idea What I’m Doing: A Daddy Blog)
“Research in a digestible soundbite? Sign us up for more of those please...We laughed out loud and then had the great conversation that you always hope will start when you hand your kid a book like this one.” (Erin Dymowski and Ellen Williams, Sisterhood of the Sensible Moms)
“Dunham is a registered nurse and a comedian who has assembled experts—including a Coach of the Year and a professor who researches adolescence—to create an informative and fun-to-read resource.” (― Elizabeth Foy Larsen, Unbored: The Essential Field Guide to Serious Fun 2012)
“Aimed at boys ages 10+, this book has lots of sidebars and funny cartoon illustrations, making it easy to pick up and read on any page. It covers a lot of ground, but in a light way.” (Debbie Abrams Kaplan, Frisco Kids)
“As boys reach adolescence, everything changes…But even if they won’t say what’s on their mind, they still want straight answers. The Boy’s Body Book provides them, in a readable, reassuring, and illustrated guide…He’ll learn about what’s going on physically (vocal changes, body hair) and how to handle academic pressures, deal with feelings, make new friends, and stay safe through it all.” (Park Slope Parents, “Tween Suggested Book/Reading List”) -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.
Discusses the physical and emotional transitions that boys undergo during puberty, including growth spurts, voice changes, sexual development, peer pressure, dating, and new relationships within the family. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.Alle Produktbeschreibungen

My son read all three books, so I asked him for his feedback on each book and this is what he said.
He found the It’s Perfectly Normal book to be “more comic’y and less squeamish.” He found the Bird and the Bee characters thru-out the book to be “really funny.” It’s Perfectly Normal contained the most information about sexual intercourse whereas The Boy’s Body Book and What’s Happening to My Body have more about health.
The What’s Happening to My Body book contained “more anatomically correct drawings.” It also has a section about being uncircumcized and how to take care of your foreskin.
The Boy’s Body Book is “fine,” but “it doesn’t really talk about sex and genital changes.” It doesn’t go into as much detail as the other two books. It does however have more content on older teens, curfew, chores, siblings and divorce. It also has a brief section on what to do if someone tries to touch you inappropriately.
The Boy’s Body Book also doesn’t have a section about girls’ bodies, but both What’s Happening to My Body and It’s Perfectly Normal do have sections about girls.
Overall, if parents want a book that is more about emotions, then he recommends the Boy’s Body Book; and if parents want a book that is more detailed about sex and genital changes, then he recommends What’s Happening to My Body or It’s Perfectly Normal.
So we purchased this book, and I have to tell you that I DON'T LIKE IT.
The first thing I didn't like was that negativity in the Introduction. It was all about 'being afraid to ask questions', 'not being able to talk to your parents', 'being ignorant', 'being laughed at', and 'feeling awkward'. Now some kids might feel that way and the book may serve them well by taking such an approach. But my kids (13 & 11) still talk to me (and talk and talk and talk) and I don't really appreciate introducing negative notions that they may not have thought of otherwise.
Another thing I disliked was how jumpy the dialog seemed to be. I read the The Care and Keeping of You: The Body Book for Younger Girls with my daughter and it didn't have the same frenetic approach. In Chapter One, for example, the book discusses, Smell, Baths, Getting Dressed, Lotion, How Deodorant works, washing your hands, what a germ is, Shampooing hair, what conditioner is for, ear care, how loud noise can hurt your hearing, zits, washing your face, shaving, brushing your teeth, going to the dentist, braces, smelly feet, what Athlete's Feet is, Drinking, Smoking, and Drugs, Steroids, sleep, and wetting the bed. A lot for one chapter, and though related in topic, you have to know that each of these subjects were presented in the order I listed them, .AND. they were in different text 'bubbles'. I felt like I had whiplash at the end of the first chapter.
AND then there's the lack of diagrams. Girls books are chocked full of images of girl bodies. Girls and how they look at different stages of development. How their chest grows, their body hair. This book, one tiny not-too-realistic drawing.
Which ties into the fact that words were used that some boys aren't going to know the definitions of. (I'd list them here, but then the review probably wouldn't post.) But generally speaking, I was hoping for a book that would parallel the girl-books we've purchased, that would talk about hair growth, hormones, and girl-boy relationships in less frivolous manner.
This book might be great for your son. It covers a lot of material, and so it might get a conversation going. But I really thought it was off base for what I was looking for. Something with more emphasis on biology, and less emphasis on finding friends after you move, and money, and what he might be when he grows up.
