The four age-appropriate books in this series enable families to develop a healthy dialogue about sexuality. They provide children the foundation of truth and knowledge they need for when they are inevitably bombarded with confusing and potentially harmful messages about sex. This 4 book series by Caryn Nostrom has something for kids at every phase from preschool through middle school.

Author Jim Burns believes the key to instilling in children a healthy, values centered view of sexuality is to start the discussion early–being open and honest at every stage. This book is designed for children ages 3 – 5.

An age-appropriate introduction to basic sexuality by Jim Burns, helping children ages 6-9 understand that God created males and females differently and with a purpose.
