It's Perfectly Normal
by Harris, Robie H.. (Candlewick , 1994 ISBN 1 56402 199 8) Nonfiction. 89 pages. Grades 3+.
This book was reviewed by Carol Otis Hurst in Teaching K-8 Magazine.
This book goes where others fear to tread, explaining things like sexual desire, having intercourse, pimples, bras, jock straps, as well as the process of reproduction. The touch is light but informative as it talks about things pre-adolescents and adolescents want to and need to know and it does it with humor and kindness and without cringing.
