Patiently forthcoming with lessons your parents redacted, this book about sex for kids starts a necessary conversation that stresses consent, sex positivity, and the right to be curious about your body.
The dialogue focuses on the dynamics of sex, rather than the mechanics, as Grandma reminds readers that sex is not marriage or reproduction, and doesn't look the same for everyone. Instead, each person's sexuality is their very own to discover, explore, and share if they choose.A refreshing, positive response to a child's questions about sex. . . . Above all, the author emphasizes that people have the right to make their own choices about sex, now and always. --SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL I love that it's Grandma giving advice. Some say the very young and the very old understand each other best, because each is closest to the unknown. --GLORIA STEINEM, feminist and author of My Life on the Road
