“Kaeser pulls no punches in his honest approach to the birds and the bees. Parents who put his advice within the context of his primary message–the three most important sex words in this book are loverespect, and trust–will have no doubt that Kaeser is deeply committed to children and their health.”
—Library Journal, STARRED REVIEW

“Dr. Kaeser’s writing style is clear, informative, and wonderfully personal–if you are one of the great majority of parents who is anxious about discussing your child’s sexual development and their questions about sex, then this book must be read.”
—RONALD MOGLIA, Ed.D., New York University
