Industry Reviews

'Accurate and up-to-date, it directly addresses young people's concerns and questions in an approachable way. The bird and the bee make comments which are fun but appropriate, engaging the interest and promoting discussion. A book which will be useful for many years and an excellent one to make available to young people.' - Parents in Touch
