Synopsis

Puberty Boy by Geoff Price

'Clear, wise and kind - a major achievement. Treats puberty with a whole person viewpoint' - Steve Biddulph, author of Raising Boys..Have you ever noticed, now that you're growing up, that your parents want to sit you down and have these embarrassing kinds of conversations with you about sex? Or they leave those 'educational' books about growing up lying around the house? Or you've got some questions about what's happening to your body but you just can't hack the thought of talking about it with your mum?..Well, Puberty Boy sidesteps embarrassing conversations and gives the full low down on what it means to be growing up. And it's written just for you...In this book, real men and boys share their stories about puberty. This lighthearted, plain speaking and honest book tells you what puberty is, when it happens and how your bodies will change. It explores the thinking and emotional changes that are happening alongside the physical and even tackles how to talk to girls! There's a brain shift happening inside you at puberty and Geoff Price makes sure that you know about it and are equipped to handle it...Puberty Boy explains the transitions that boys need to go through to become healthy young men in a unique, colourful and commonsense way. It is an essential guide for boys - and your parents, carers and teachers might even find it useful as well! (Hey, leave it lying around for them to find.)..

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
