Every Answer You Will Ever Need!

Dear Friend:


Are you a parent? An aunt or uncle? A grandparent? Or a family friend?


If you have children or teens in your life, we want you to know about an exceptional way to put them on the path toward a sexually healthy life.


Robie H. Harris, award-winning author of more than 20 children’s books and a former teacher, understands healthy child development and, like SIECUS, believes it is in the best interest of children to have straightforward, honest, accurate, and up-to-date information about healthy sexuality.


For a limited time, the Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States (SIECUS) is able to offer its supporters an incredible gift from this ground-breaking author and educator.


To celebrate the 15th anniversary edition of



Changing Bodies, Growing Up, Sex, and Sexual Health

(for kids age 10 and up)


the 10th anniversary edition of

IT’S SO AMAZING! A Book About Eggs, Sperm, Birth, Babies, and Families

(for children age 7 and up)



A Book About Girls, Boys, Babies, Bodies, Families, and Friends

(for children age 4 and up)


SIECUS will send you a signed copy of the book of your choice with your $50 donation.




You can even receive all three books in the FAMILY LIBRARY signed by Robie H. Harris for a gift of $125 or more to SIECUS.


These landmark books use lively, comfortable language and sensitive, engaging artwork to address readers in a reassuring way, mindful of young people’s desire for straightforward information. Harris consulted with the most prominent practitioners and researchers in the fields of child development, education, pediatrics, and psychology to ensure that the books were age-appropriate and scientifically accurate. These books are perfect starting points for family conversations.


The new and completely updated 15th anniversary edition of It’s Perfectly Normal for pre-teens and teens has been and still is the definitive book on sex and sexual health, providing accurate, unbiased answers to nearly every imaginable question, from conception and puberty to birth control and AIDS. The book is used as a trusted resource in over 30 countries.


The updated 10th anniversary edition of It’s So Amazing!, for kids age 7 and up, is the book to reach for when it’s time to talk. What makes a baby male or female? How is a baby born? Children have plenty of questions about reproduction and babies — and about sex and sexuality too. It’s So Amazing! has the answers.


It’s Not the Stork!, for children age 4 and up, is the book to reach for when a young child starts to ask questions: Where did I come from? How did I get inside you? How did I get out? Why is my body different from your body? This book answers all these questions about birth, bodies, and families that younger children wonder about and inevitably blurt out in the supermarket checkout line.




Harris’ books have received such honors as:


The New York Times Notable Book of the Year

Boston Globe Horn Book Honor

Publisher’s Weekly Best Books of the Year

Booklist Editors’ Choice

School Library Journal Best Books of the Year


These books have also been endorsed by the world’s most trusted child development experts and provide a resource that parents, teachers, librarians, health care professionals, and clergy can turn to and use with ease and confidence.


And, ordering one or more copies of these books today will also support the critical work of SIECUS to promote sexual and reproductive health education programs, services, and rights.


So, don’t waste any time.




We have a limited number of copies of these signed books and we want you to be sure to secure yours!
