This illustrated volume is a non-sexist sexuality education book for children of ages 6 to 10. Do all boys want to become pilots or firemen? Do all girls want to become mothers or secretaries? Is blue a boy's colour? Is pink a girl's colour? ...
'Baloney!' says Dr. Sol Gordon in this refreshingly candid book about gender differences and human similarities. Gordon designed this book to help parents be the primary sex educators for their children and to prepare children for mature and responsible adult attitudes.In it, he explains facts about human reproduction, the physical differences between boys and girls, and the fact that these differences have no effect on a person's choice of career or other interests. Gordon reminds children that everyone is human - even though girls are girls and boys are boys - and that it's important that everybody has equal opportunities for the jobs they want, the way they have fun, and the life they want to lead. Gordon provides space for children to write down their hopes and goals for the future and includes a teaching note for parents and educators.
