I Wonder I Wonder Author:Marguerite Kurth Frey A young child is a wonderfully curious creature. He is naturally curious too about his maleness or femaleness. He wants to know the why and how of his body and being. — Children vary as to what, when and how they ask questions about reproductive facts. Some children ask questions easily, others find it more difficult. But all children are cur... more »ious about themselves, about birth and death and all things between.
Christian sex education is much more than learning the few physical facts of sex and reproduction. Sex education gives the child an enjoyment in and responsibility for his maleness or femaleness to God's glory. Christian parents give their children this feeling of God-centered sexuality largely by example, by the everday love and feelings which flow between them.
The factual information which children between the ages of 5 and 9 are ready for is found in this book. It is meant to be read to, read with, or read by the child who is in kindergarten, first, second, or third grade.
The parents must determine the readiness of their children for this material. Some kindergartners may not yet be ready for the information and concepts in this book. In that case, parents will use their judgement as to when they are ready. Or the material may be too elementary for some third-grade pupils, and they may be ready to move on to the concepts in the second book of the series.
In this book the author skillfully sets about molding positive attitudes not only toward the origin of life but toward the roles of fathers and mothers, brothers and sisters in the home. The story is that of a happy, well-adjusted family and its Christian attitudes.« less
