It’s Perfectly Normal

Editor’s Note: We do not take paid advertisements in Future Reflections, but we do pass on information to readers about products or literature that we think will be of interest to them. The National Braille Press (NBP) publishes many useful books in Braille for adults, children, and youth. We thought you would like to know about the following items:

Book:   It’s Perfectly Normal: Changing Bodies, Growing Up, Sex, and Sexual Health, by Robie H. Harris. Ages 10-14. In Braille (2 volumes) or PortaBook, $10.99.

In this caring, conscientious, and well-crafted book, author Robie Harris offers a candid, thorough, and reassuring introduction to human sexuality.

In forthright and detailed text, she provides accurate and objective answers to children’s questions about all the supposedly “age appropriate” issues—the structure of the reproductive system and puberty, for example—as well as a good deal more, from the terms we use when we talk about sex to intercourse, birth, birth control, sexual health, abuse, issues of responsibility and respect, and a sense of the emotional weight that accompanies sexuality.

NBP offers “It’s Perfectly Normal” in Braille and PortaBook only. The print version of the books is available through bookstores or <www.amazon.com>.
