I received this book for review from Annick Press.

Toddlers and Preschoolers are by nature interested in the human body. It’s all pretty new to them and it’s interesting. Bodies are something to be proud of and we shouldn’t be teaching them that certain parts of their bodies are something to be ashamed of. Sure we don’t want them parading around nude in public but that doesn’t mean we should change the subject when they ask what the names of their privates are.

The Bare Naked Book is perfect to read to your children to show them all the different parts of our bodies and how they can be different. For example, when hair is shown, it is shown dripping, straight, curly and tangled. Toes are shown stamping, ticklish, skinny and squishy. Nipples are shown as little nipples and nipples like buttons (children), hairy nipples (men) and milky nipples (a nursing mother,) which I liked. If you are wondering, they don’t shown different kinds of private parts*.

I most definitely recommend this book to all parents of toddlers and preschoolers.

* I’m not naming them because people who are searching for those terms would end up here.
