***Warning, the content contained in this book, which the Monticello, Iowa library states is “the perfect introduction to body awareness and sexual education for preschool and early elementary students,” will be considered by most to be vulgar and inappropriate for young children.***

Parents across the country are alerting others to a book called “My Body is Growing: A Guide for Children, ages 4-8.” The book is supposed to be a German sex education book that “takes a fresh approach to explaining the birds and the bees to children.”


A Salt Lake School District adult became concerned about the book when her two grade school nieces were reading the book to their grandma.

The page causing the most heartburn reads:

“They snuggle together for a long time. They kiss each other all over their bodies. Behind the ears, on the neck, on the chest and stomach, even on the bum and between the legs. Sabrina’s vagina becomes moist and warm and Marco’s penis gets very stiff. Marco then pushes his penis into Sabrina’s vagina. Always in and out. That feels great for both of them. When the feeling is nicest, Marco’s penis sprays semen into Sabrina’s vagina.”

Off to the right on the page are graphics showing a package of birth control pills, which it says women take to prevent the fertilization of an egg. It also details an IUD, diaphragms and contraceptive foam caps.

The Monticello, Iowa library website states the book is on the shelf and “is the perfect introduction to body awareness and sexual education for preschool and early elementary school students.
