1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Wendy on July 6 2002
Format: Paperback
I recently purchased this book to go through with my 10 year old son. I have been so pleased with the dialoge provided in the book! It asks the questions kids really have and helps us parents give answers based on scripture! This book is a wonderful tool for using with your children as you talk frankly about sex and the consequences of going against what the bible teaches. I have already recommended this book to family members with children 8 to 11.
Even though my son is 10 years old now I have decided to go back and purchase the two previous books to this one to go through with him. They certainly couldn't hurt!!!!

Format: Paperback
There are two books prior to "What's the Big Deal" and we have used these wonderfully illustrated books with all three of our children. We followed the age suggestion and found that the subject matter was presented in a very natural and positive way. The main reason these books are such a blessing is that we need to tell our precious and innocent children the truth so that they are prepared mentally and emotionally when the "lies" inevitably come their way. Don't wait! Your child needs this healthy information.

The "Sex" talk Nov. 7 2007
By Brenda Dean - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you're nervous about telling your child the "facts of life", this book will save you. It goes over all the stuff you might forget and like the book, I highly recommend reading it out loud with your child. Note: it has "parents" parts and "kids" parts broken down like a script/question-answer style; but it's not cheesie.

Incorrect age ranges Sept. 5 2008
By MathMom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I think the information in this whole series of books is wonderful! However, I think the age ranges are a bit off. I don't think a 5-8 year old needs to know the details of sex. I just shared the 2nd book in the series with my 10 year old because she started talking about the word "sex", not knowing what it was. There are some topics in the 3rd book that I didn't feel she was ready for yet, so I will wait a few months. I will certainly give her all that information before she enters middle school. However, I want her to absorb the Godly intention for sex before she has to begin absorbing the ways in which the world has distorted it. That is truly my only suggestion - wait till the kids are a bit older than the book suggests.

Age Range is Appropriate! Sept. 9 2008
By JDL - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is book 3 of the God's Design for Sex series. I purchased the series when my daughters were 8 years old. My girls have been quite sheltered from TV and videos their entire life and attend a Christian school. We started at age 8 with Book 1 soon followed by book 2 and then left things there for quite a while. At 11 we read through all of Book 3. At 13, (now) they have read parts of book 4 and reviewed the table of contents. They are driving the discussions much more now and we're going on their timeline. That said, my 8 year old niece has hundreds of channels coming into her home, chats online through KOL (kids online), and has been exposed to MUCH more than my daughters. She was askingin depth questions and finished book 3 this summer with her mom. The age appropriateness all depends on the child and what they are ready for or need.
