5.0 out of 5 stars An Absolute Must For Every Christian Family! July 6 2002
By Wendy
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!!!!

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.

3.0 out of 5 stars 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.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Missed Opportunity April 26 2012
By Von - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I must say I was disappointed in this book. We had read the earlier two books to our children and had found them very useful and appropriate. This book, on the other hand, missed the mark.

One example would be where the boy and the father are discussing why it is wrong for a boy to have pictures of naked or half-naked women plastered around his room. The answer given is right out of the liberal/secular playbook: objectification. This answer is not only illogical, it is not Biblical. Ironically the answer to this question can be given with a direct quote from no lesser personality than Christ himself. "If a man look at a woman to lust after her," Christ tells us, "He has committed adultery in his heart."

So the father should not only have quoted Christ but have explained to his son that, as we as a church are to preserve ourselves chaste virgins for Christ, so those women should be preserving themselves for their own husbands, and his son for his own wife.

Time and time again the book raises important questions only to answer them with a secular/liberal answer instead of a Christian one. 'Unwanted pregnancies' are spoken of instead of fornication, as if the real problem was that the woman might get pregnant, not that she was prostituting her body in a relationship with a man not her husband. Most blasphemously of all the subject of abortion is addressed as if it were just a 'difficult decision' instead of an act of murder.

Other reviewers have addressed the age issue and I believe they have dramatically missed the mark. Sex education, especially if addressed in a Christian and frank manner, using the medically correct terms, is best started very early. For our very young children much of what adults do is incomprehensible anyway, and so sex is just one more incomprehensible thing. They can be told, and accept with joy, the idea that Mommy and Daddy enjoy each other in a sexual way. They can learn how babies come out, and how they get in there, without any of the discomfort that faces the older child.

It is the older child, in whose body has begun a stirring of curiosity, moving to a fascination, for what their body and the body of another might do to another, that introducing the sexual act might cause extreme embarrassment. Or the concept that their parents still enjoy these activities (which, hopefully, should be obvious anyway, as new children keep arising and Daddy makes his physical affection for Mommy clear) might lead them to be 'grossed out'.

And the parents should be careful to deal with this issue of being 'grossed out'. One of the goals of Christian sex education should be to reflect the view of Song of Solomon, Proverbs 5, and Ephesians 5, that the physical union of a man and a woman in marriage is a marvelous, necessary, and spiritual thing. That in so doing they reflect the relationship between Christ and the Church. That the child should not be 'grossed out' at the idea of the sexual act, or embarrassed that his parents should, and do, continue to enjoy sex.

All in all this book represents a great missed opportunity to preach the Gospel of Christ to a lost world through the medium of sex education, and deceives Christian young people on exceedingly important issues.
