Book Description (Amazon)

February 27, 2012
A humorous, fact-filled description of puberty, adolescence, and reproduction. With all the essential facts and easy-to-understand format, the witty and edgy style of this book will appeal to boys ranging from nine to thirteen years old. Puberty and adolescence have never been told in a more fun and relaxing way! The reader will understand that a boy’s physical, emotional, and social development during puberty is normal and common to all. Main character Bork empowers the reader with all the necessary and objective facts, and includes an interactive element to engage the reader in simple and entertaining activities. This book is a great resource to introduce the topic to younger, pre-adolescent boys, and also serves as a perfect complement to the sex ed courses taught in the upper elementary grades. Using a unique and careful approach, the author includes only the basic, factual necessities of sex and reproduction without venturing into other subjective areas—and the many values and judgments that often accompany this topic. This is the one guide that provides boys with everything they need to know without delving into the more complex areas that can surround this important and sensitive topic. For all families with boys, this is a book that should remain on the shelf as their pre-teens mature and become more inquisitive about their bodies. The book also serves as an effective resource for parents, pediatricians, librarians, and school counselors.

BORK REVEALS THE REAL DEAL ABOUT THE FACTS OF LIFE: (FOR BOYS ONLY) by Terri Shearer Trenchard is an interesting Growing Up & Facts of Life/Boys & Men/ Friendship, Social Skills & School Life. Ages: 9-12 years old. Although, I would advise a parent or guardian to read with the child. It is witty,but graphic with pictures to go along with some of the descriptions. Filled with discussions of  puberty, adolescence, and reproduction. Told by Bork himself. I would recommend this title to parents, educators,school counselors, and healthcare professionals. Lots of embarrassing topics that parents struggle with are told in this fun based, fact filled story of the male parts,sex,reproduction,anatomy, and of course easier topics such as shaving,peer pressure,and growing up in general. A girls version would be great! A must read! A very helpful educational tool for adolescence,and puberty,told in a relaxing way by Bork. Ms. Trenchard has tackled a tough job with dignity,knowledge and respect,tastefully told with tasteful and respectful graphics. Knowledge is power! Very interesting read,well written and Bork is a treasure. Received for an honest review from  Firefly Marketing & PR and/or author.
