Book recommendations for "birds and the bees" talk?

I am asking this question for a friend. His 9 year old son told him today that he knows about "S-E-X" (can I say that word?). My friend is looking for a good book for his son to read about the subject. Does anyone have any suggestions for a 9 year old boy? Thanks!!

Re: Book recommendations for "birds and the bees" talk?

When I went to find one for my daughter (also 9) I went to Barnes and Noble and browsed through a few. I asked the advice of the sales clerks to see what were the more popular ones and then found one that I was comfortable with. The one I bought deals specifically with girls and the changes they have in puberty, but I'm sure there is one for boys. We haven't really gotten into the S-E-X part yet, though, just the puberty stuff.

If she's Christian and wants that perspective, Generations of Virtue has lots of options. Their customer service is very knowledgable and helpful in choosing the right product too.

Well, I am using Where did I Come From? It's the same book that my parents used with me. It's illustrated and gives enough information about the mechanics while saying that it is a grown up thing and about love. No religious overtones. No judgement. Just very straight forward and honest about how babies are made naturally. It's a great first intercourse describer. My son is 8 and we read it to him sometime last year. He still pulls it off the shelf to read.

If you go digging for reviews you will find that there are some who view it as sexist since the man initiates and then he is on top. I suppose those people are expecting some sort of elementary kama sutra.
