Anyways, I think one of the reasons the day went well for him was that we have had this book lying around the house for a while.
It's So Amazing! is a book about the facts of life. There are two main characters, a bird and a bee.The bird is curious and open and the bee is embarrassed and self conscious.
But they do talk about it, and throughout the book, in cartoon strip style, explain how babies are made,
how we all change as we get older,
the differences and similarities between boys and girls,
the many shapes of families can take,
and much, much more.
I discovered this book on Mrs Little, one of my favourite book blogs. I've bought many books she mentions, and never been disappointed. She also reviewed What's Happening To Me? (its important to say that with a break in your voice, we all do.) which is about puberty. It's not as comprehensive as It's So Amazing! but the illustrations are very funny and will definitely bring a smile to any worried face.
This is why my youngest calls it "the boob book."
