"Patiently forthcoming with lessons your parents redacted, this necessary conversation stresses consent, sex positivity, and the right to be curious about your body. The dialogue focuses on the dynamics of sex, rather than the mechanics, as Grandma reminds readers that sex is not marriage or reproduction, and doesn't look the same for everyone. Instead, each person's sexuality is their very own to discover, explore, and share if they choose. Anastasia Higginbotham's tell stories of children navigating trouble with their senses on alert and their souls intact. Her previous books include Divorce Is the Worst and Death Is Stupid"-- Provided by publisher.

A very straightforward and frank conversation about sex and human sexuality, I think it does best at imparting ones autonomy over ones own body.

"Tell me about Sex, Grandma" is a conversation between a grandchild and a grandmother. The child is asking her to explain what he has heard and the grandmother responds in a truthful, child appropriate way. This is not a traditional book explaining sex. She says things like "its in your nature to want to know" which teaches him that knowing about anything sexual is 'not bad'. Grandmother is clear that its private, for grown ups, feelings good and is a choice. She talks about good feelings, safe touch and consent.
I would recommend using the book as a guide to discussion. The pictures are fantastically creative mixed media and great introduction to talking about how you feel. Age Recommended 6+ yrs old. This is part of a series called "ordinary, terrible things".

The newest in the Feminist Press' "Ordinary Terrible Things" Series, this book talks about things like consent, feelings, choices, and reproduction in a dialogue between grandchild and grandmother. I highly recommend this series and LOVE Anastasia' collage illustrations and the humor and honesty she uses, taking the edge off "Ordinary Terrible" topics often seen as difficult to discuss with children.
