For this week, I’m featuring a banned, challenged, or censored book each day of the week alongside your regularly scheduled line-up!
Pub Date July 28th 2015
Genres Nonfiction, Parenting, Childrens, Graphic Novels
A comic book for kids that includes children and families of all makeups, orientations, and gender identities, Sex Is a Funny Word is an essential resource about bodies, gender, and sexuality for children ages 8 to 10 as well as their parents and caregivers. Much more than the “facts of life” or “the birds and the bees,” Sex Is a Funny Word opens up conversations between young people and their caregivers in a way that allows adults to convey their values and beliefs while providing information about boundaries, safety, and joy.
The eagerly anticipated follow up to Lambda-nominated What Makes a Baby, from sex educator Cory Silverberg and artist Fiona Smyth, Sex Is a Funny Word reimagines “sex talk” for the twenty-first century.
REASON FOR BEING
BANNED OR CHALLENGED
This 2015 informational children’s book written by a certified sex educator was challenged because it addresses sex education and is believed to lead children to “want to have sex or ask questions about sex.”
Never read it, but I remember hearing about it. Sorta want to put it on my TBR/WTRO2 list…
What do you guys think? Have you read this one? What were your thoughts on it and does the challenges brought upon it stand or are wildly exaggerated?
