I'm finally getting around to sharing this project I was excited about at the end of last school year: Primus' Puberty Book. I mentioned that we were working on it here and here.
I bought the blank hardcover book from Lakeshore Learning. Together we decided as we went where we wanted to break up sections of text and where to add illustrations.
I wanted her study of Sex-Ed to be very scientific and clinical. Just the facts. None of the fluff found in conventional resources for kids.
The text was copied from Wikipedia. We read it together and I explained some things to her. The idea is that she'll read and re-read this book in the future and understand more each time.
The illustrations were a combination of her drawings, photographs, diagrams printed from online, and diagrams found in a book and traced by her.
Not every concept necessitated, or lent itself easily to, an illustration.
At the very end, I had her trace a diagram of male anatomy. Then orally we discussed "where babies come from." There are several empty pages left at the back of the book so I anticipate we will have this discussion again and add text explaining it in years to come.
