Review quote

These attractively illustrated books, with their clear, anatomically correct pictures and simple, unambiguous text, deal bravely with the aspects of sexuality that are challenging to teach and will facilitate discussion and learning. They will be a very welcome addition to the bookshelves of families who have an adolescent on the autism spectrum. -- Sarah Attwood, author of Making Sense of Sex This series is perfect for use in sex education classes. An excellent and very helpful choice for professionals working with people with ASD! -- Ioannis Voskopoulos-Labrini Ioannou, psychologist
