God Made Your Body

God Made Your Body by Jim Burns (Pure Foundations for ages 3 to 5) was a wonderful children’s book. There are real pictures in the book of real kids, real people. And the language is real too, not “kiddie” They use the same language I talk to my kids in when explaining things, like vagina and penis. It explains how a baby is made and born. It talks about family, and adoption. I think this is one of the better children’s for teaching about the body, and differences in people; skin color, hair color, etc. I enjoyed looking at this book with Callan and talking to him about it. What a great book!

About the Book: Author Jim Burns believes the key to instilling in children a healthy, values-centered view of sexuality is to start the discussion early - being open and honest at every stage. The Pure Foundations series is already guiding parents of preteens and teens through potentially awkward conversations. Now two fully illustrated books - one for pre-readers and one for early readers - complete the series. God Made Your Body provides the basic foundation that God created our bodies and wants us to honor Him with our bodies. Through engaging text and eye-catching, kid-friendly illustrations, children ages 3 to 5 will learn that boys' and girls' bodies are different - and those differences mean boys and girls can grow up to become daddies and mommies.
