Overview
Insightful and considerate answers to 70 questions boys and girls have about puberty and young love. Even before they experience puberty and young love themselves, girls and boys have many questions about sex and sexuality. Parents often don't know the best way to answer them and it's practically impossible to find the right time to start a conversation about the birds and the bees. Especially today, when most young people have access to the internet and its explicit or dubious content, it is extremely important to address the topic of sex education with children proactively and give it the attention it needs and deserves. As daunting as it might be for parents to take the lead, leaving the internet or a classmate to -explain- sexuality is not an option. Thankfully, the book Does This Happen to Everyone? offers a welcome alternative with a contemporary look and feel that is both fitting for kids and appealing to adults. Does This Happen to Everyone? is an empathetic and entertaining publication that radiates joy, imaginativeness, and fun. In it, Photo artist Jan von Holleben and writer Antje Helms provide answers to the most important questions about puberty in words and images that are relaxed and uninhibited, yet suitable for children. The book takes questions, worries, and fears seriously and responds to them in a direct, yet sensitive way that anyone can understand.

Taking an empathetic and respectful approach to sex education, Von Hollenben and Helms blend humor, factual information, and candid advice (“It’s entirely up to you whether you want to say vulva, coochie, vag, or anything else that sounds good to you”). Photographs of boys and girls hanging out are augmented with plants, fruits, and vegetables (seeds and grasses represent stubble, pairs of fruit suggest varying breast sizes and shapes). Common questions (“I heard sex is the best thing in the world. Is that true?”) receive thoughtful and funny responses (“Bonobo apes probably think so. They have sex about every 90 minutes”) along with thorough discussion. A valuable resource that normalizes and affirms sexuality while suggesting that puberty is a time of both physical and intellectual growth. Ages 12–up. (Aug.)
