    Default Book discussing girl & boy anatomy

    Is there a book out there that describes girl and boy anatomy appropriate for a 6 year old?

    oohhh, can i piggyback on this and ask for any books for the same age group that discuss birds and bees... DS is asking questions about erections and why his penis sometimes "tickles"

    i've artfully avoided because i have no idea how to best answer

    sorry to hijack, drako!! hopefully these books are hand in hand...

    The "It's Not the Stork" series is great. There are different ones based on age.

    It's Not the Stork is a great book if you want to talk birds and bees. If you just want to talk about anatomy Amazing You! by [COLOR=#555555 !important][/COLOR][COLOR=#555555 !important]Gail Saltz and [/COLOR][COLOR=#555555 !important]Lynne Avril Cravath[/COLOR] is also really good! We have both.

    I like Amazing You and have recommended it in the past as a way to talk anatomy and reproduction without the mechanics of sex... but just want to note it does only show a circ-ed penis (so will be unfamiliar to intact boys) it refers only to the "vagina" for female anatomy (which irritates me and pedantic parents everywhere), and it says babies come from the "very very stretchy" vagina (so doesn't acknowledge c-sections). Not a big deal, but since these are issues BBB parents tend to have opinions about, it is something to be aware of.
