What You Should Know Boys and Girls has been carefully and sensitively created for all those children who are growing up - wherever they may be in the world, but particularly to cater for those in Third World countries who have little or no correct information to help them. Not only does it answer all the standard questions, such as, 'What's happening to my body?' and 'What can I expect when my body starts to develop?', but it also tackles many more in-depth situations that naturally occur. As well as answering questions that children may either be too embarrassed or afraid to ask, there is also extensive information about sexual health, physical relationships, contraception and a sound knowledge of STIs (sexually transmitted infections). The vast range of content in this well-structured book is also supported with useful diagrams, illustrations and images which give the book depth and, at times, a light-heartedness that will allay a child's initial fears. Dr Sinha's choice of unassuming and reassuring language (that is nonetheless direct) and her reader-friendly style makes this book easy to digest, and she neither alienates nor patronizes her readers. Author simply supplies all of the facts that a growing child would need, without casting judgement or scaremongering. What You Should Know Boys and Girls will be a book that feeds (and encourages) young, inquisitive minds, gives our children the understanding and confidence to take care of their own health and wellbeing, and will be a source of vital information that will help them long into their young adult lives.
