I cannot say enough good things about this book! I have a 7yo son, and this is by the far the best book on the topic of puberty & growing up we have read.

This book has great illustrations that enforce positive body image for boys of every color, size, shape & style. It's information spans from nutrition, grooming, hygiene, relationships, to sexual development, hormones, voice changes. The layout is like a graphic novel or magazine, easy to grab & read paragraph about a topic, skip around & not feel heavy or text book-ish.

It's got great vocabulary & topics to read aloud -- things I hadn't even thought about addressing, plus the things I was scared about addressing, I have been able to handle without awkwardness or hesitation because I was reading aloud from this friendly & approachable book. Even his father was like, "Wow, I'm learning a lot! I wish I had a book like this when I was growing up."

Many meaningful & positive conversations have stemmed from us reading a few pages together here & there (we sprinkle this book along with other story books for bedtime reading to help create a low-stress, high-enjoyment atmosphere about growing up), and I genuinely feel like my relationship with my son is stronger because of it. You can talk freely & openly and build trust & respect with your child! This book will help.
