So I think this was a very well written book for our times. It is “marketed“ towards 10 years olds, and I don't feel like it is appropriate for this age group. Marketing it towards High School students seems much more appropriate.
There are some very graphic and detailed ideas about very adult topics.
In KC area it was challenged by a a group of people wanted to remove it from a public library

cwarnier I think that the library has every right to have it on their self. Do I agree that it is in the kids section, no. But parents also need to take responsibility about what their kids are reading as well. If you don't like it don't let your kids read it.

Who loves to read banned books?
Recently this book has been controversy around Kansas CIty. The public library has it in the kids section and I checked it out from the library to see what it was all about.

This book was a great example of nonfiction, however, I would really think about using it depending on the age of my classroom. The images extended the text but were a bit much at times where it may make younger kids laugh or feel uncomfortable. The text is clear and easy to follow, and the subject was definitely clearly covered, which makes it great nonfiction but just mind the age group.

While I thought that this book was a great resource for the topic, I would not use this in a super young classroom because they may not fully grasp it, make think it is funny, and some content is just a little too inappropriate for the age group.

I personally would not use this in my classroom because I think that this book is a little inappropriate for children and would be best read one on one with kids.

This was a very informal book, however, I thought the images and language were a bit inappropriate for the age group. The information is very clear and goes into great detail about every subject. The subject is covered clearly and there are many different sections of this book that go into detail about that subject.

I think that this book is a great classroom pick. Some people are more sensitive to topics like these, so I think that it would vary for different teachers. I feel comfortable with these topics, and so as long as the parents are okay with it, I don't see any issue having it in an early childhood classroom. It's important that kids are learning the correct anatomical language, and what consent means early on!

This nonfiction book tells all about changing bodies! I think that this book is great to introduce younger children to their bodies. I think that it would require the parents to know that the book is in the classroom, but children are never too young to learn about anatomically correct ways of handling their bodies. I think that this is a great book for children who are going through puberty as well.

This book is set for the 21st century! Very up to date and informational! Would be for older kids because it shows a lot of personal things
