  • There is NO WAY ON EARTH this is AN INTRO book for children.

  • This book instructs teens (i.e., children) about topics such as body fluid/blood play and fisting…. It's absolutely disgusting and shameful.

  • Seriously inappropriate content.

  • Horribly needs to be banned.

Online Reviews for the SEX Guide

What Makes a Baby - Recommended for Age 3+

The below book attempts to explain where a baby comes from without using gender to be more "inclusive."  The book uses mature terms such as sperm, egg, uterus and vagina. The cartoon sperm on the cover is disturbing when you consider showing these pictures to THREE year olds!

Below are some pages from the "What Makes a Baby" book.  Again, I'd like to remind the viewer the intended audience for this book is 3-8 years old.  They are descriptive enough to talk about sperm and eggs, but refuse to say they come from a male or female, just some "bodies."

George - Recommended Age - 9 up

Slide 10.JPG

GEORGE was also recommended in the "Read Pride Month" board.  This book also got national attention when the Lieutenant Governor of North Carolina, Mark Robinson specifically sited this book when discussing the indoctrination of students in his state.  Below is a quote from the governor:


"There's an example of a book called, I believe it's called George Is given to 4th grade students. And in that book, this student and this person, his character in this book questions his own sexual identity. He questions his sexuality and even talks about removing his genitalia. Uh, that's the exact kind of stuff we're talking about those conversations that should be had at home among parents among stuff. Parents and Children not in our public school system."

Books Recommended by Age 10+

These books address romantic homosexual relationships and traumatic events like the death of a sibling, needing a heart transplant, divorce, and a father with unmanaged bi-polar disorder.  These books are not age appropriate.

Books Recommended for Ages 13+

Even the book titles are disturbing.  We are unsure why a 13 year old would need a "Survivor Guide" or books telling them to "Create a Life Worth Living"?

Why would a 13 year old need a workbook to help them figure out what gender they are?

Ages 13+.JPG

Recommended for Age 14+

These books have to do with gender fluidity, being intersex, or how to be a good transgender ally.
