You know what sex is. You have heard other kids talking about it, and maybe you have heard it talked about it on TV. But TV doesn't tell you everything, and you probably still have some questions. That's great - because What's the Big Deal? was written to help kids like you, ages 8 to 11, find the answers you need. This book explains the basic facts about sex and such related issues as:

  • Why God made adults so that they want to have sex
  • Why God designed sex to be shared only within marriage
  • What God actually says about sex in the Bible
  • The amazing changes ahead of you during puberty
  • How to respond when you feel sexual pressure from peers, TV shows, movies, and magazines.

Your parents will read this book with you or discuss it with you as you read it on your own. They will answer any leftover questions you might have and help you understand what a beautiful and exciting gift from God your sexuality is meant to be.

Comments from people who have used this material:

I appreciate the way this book blends medical information with a biblical theology of sexuality
- Tim Stafford, Senior Writer, Christianity Today

"As a Christian Parent raised in a family that never discussed sex, I found this book (and the series) to be a great starting point. It hits all the right topics in a way that communicates a Christian view without using guilt or sounding preachy. Parents should read it themselves, then pass it on to their child. Don't wait for your child to hit puberty before you start talking about this important subject."

"This entire series is great for introducing sex in a godly way from a young age. I have found them to be informative, honest and clear about the importance of sex being saved for marriage."
- Christine Phillips

Great Series. I read books one and two to our daughter and my husband read them to our son between the ages of 6 and 8. The third book we chose to read to our 8 yr. old girl and 10 yr. old girl and 10 year old boy together as a family. We each read our "part" in the story and they looked forward to reading each chapter. It was a wonderful family time which I believe resulted in a healthy understanding of the basic facts of life and took the "embarrassment" out of the subject. I recommend these to all my friends!

I have found these books to be tremendously helpful to our family when dealing with the subject of introducing sex to our daughters. The content in each book is right on target and easily grasped by our girls. The books use appropriate vocabulary geared to each age level. The illustrations are also tastefully rendered. The hand drawn pictures show just enough definition so children 'get the point' but not vividly drawn that kids 'only' zero in on the reality of the picture. I appreciate that greatly. Thank you Carolyn for an excellent book series. We will be reading book 3 soon and looking forward to it.
