Review quote

"It's Perfectly Normal is informative and interesting; reassuring and responsible; warm and charming. I wish every child (and parent) could have a copy." -- Penelope Leach, Ph.D., author of YOUR BABY & CHILD "I recommend [IT'S PERFECTLY NORMAL] to parents and children who are coming into adolescence. They will love it." -- T. Berry Brazelton, M.D. author of TOUCHPOINTS "A perfectly wonderful treatment of the always touchy subject of sex education for young people. The book treats the subject seriously and its intended readers respectfully." -- Hugh B. Price, president, National Urban League, Inc.
