Everything children really want to know about sexuality and bodies - and aren't afraid to ask. This book collects questions asked by boys and girls and answers them directly: the questions are real, the answers honest and the images funny.
How much sex education do children need? As much as they ask for, say the experts. And exactly what do children want to know? Ask them!
This book collects real questions asked by children in classes about the human body, love, and sexuality. The answers are both direct and warmhearted, giving children the information they really want to know in a form they can relate to. This is a book for both boys and girls that is relevant to today's conversations about sexuality. It brings humour and lightness to help families comfortably approach this topic that many find awkward.

Lucy Bailey's Review:
Is it possible not to go threw puberty?
Why do bodies grow hair?
Can animals be gay?
Is it embarrassing to have sex?
What is porn?
Is it bad to have kids when you are a teenager?
Can you have a baby out of your bottom?
Totally honest, completely non-judgemental, funny and sometimes graphic answers to real children's questions from Gecko Press.
From the silly to the serious (porn, rape and prostitution), kids' questions can be confronting and it may not be clear exactly the best way to answer them. Tell Me can be used as a resource for parents and caregivers or left out for older kids to read themselves. It's definitely one for the home rather than the school...although teachers might also find it useful. And as for age? That's really up to you - we've had parents of toddlers finding it super useful and adults who find it too much for them. There's a really useful review from Stuff here.
