I didn’t realize how much the robot part would play into the theme, but in the end, it is what gives much purpose to this book. Interesting material on its own, the book serves also as a defence for arcane science. You never know what advances it can lead to until you follow where the curiosity takes you.

P--for penis! It could also be for puberty, the main two topics of this book. The delicate, but very important subject is tackled by the author David Hu, a scientist and professor at Georgia Institute of Technology. The book contains the important features of an informational text--table of contents, labeled diagrams, glossary, and resources page.
The main text is written with factual information to help any parent talk to a young boy about their body, taking care of their penis, and helping them understand puberty. Humor is gently interwoven in the scientific explanations, helping to lighten the load of the content. The matter of fact tone is perfect to help convey the (for some readers) difficult task of talking about our bodies. This text is also perfect for teens or even adults who may have misconceptions about how the penis works and facts associated with their body.
The illustrations by Arahovitis are perfect for this book and the anatomical diagrams help explain the text. The humor imbued in some illustrations will be appreciated by young boys as they read.
The resources page contains not only resources on the human boy and puberty, but a short list of gender resources. Unlike another reviewer, I applaud this short gender list (1 website and 3 children's literature books) for helping children access information when they might need it.
My only hope is that the editors will catch the change in font on a few pages (some had different sized fonts and different types of fonts that appeared to be a mistake). My review was a "forecast copy" so I am sure it will be corrected in future print editions.

I requested this book as an Early Review because it seemed like an interesting concept. It tackles the taboo subject of talking about a boy's body. My son is curious and giggled at the topic as I read this book to him. There were some pages that dealt with more mature aspects of male anatomy. We reviewed them before sharing and decided to save those pages for when he's a little bit older. However, when that conversation comes, I'm glad to have this book in my toolbox for that conversation. I think this book is very well worded and explained things in a sensible, understandable and relatable way. I definitely recommend this book for parents of boys (and even girls too!).… (lisätietoja)
