Children today want and need answers to questions about physical changes in puberty and related matters, much sooner than their parents did. They are more sexualized, growing up faster, and entering puberty earlier than ever before. Yet many parents still either avoid sexuality education or miss it completely through their own ignorance or fears. This title is the answer!

Written for children between the ages of 8 and 13 in an easy question and answer format, with delightful illustrations to add a fun element, it will double as an invaluable guide for parents so that they can answer their children's questions candidly, with knowledge, sensitivity and humour.

Gebeur Dit Met Almal? Reguitpraat Oor Puberteit (Afrikaans, Hardcover): Antje Helms Gebeur Dit Met Almal? Reguitpraat Oor Puberteit (Afrikaans, Hardcover)
Antje Helms; Translated by Anthony Moen
R239 Discovery Miles 2 390 Shipped within 10 - 15 working days

Jou liggaam verander, nuwe emosies verwar jou en jy het honderd duisend vrae wat jy nie weet hoe of vir wie om te vra nie. Jy is skielik fyngevoelig, selfbewus en sommer net moeilik... Maar hoekom? En hoekom is daardie pes van n meisiekind ewe skielik vir jou so oulik? As al die bogenoemde waar is, is hierdie boek vir jou. Want jy is n puber en n nuwe wereld gaan vir jou oop. Selfs nog voor jongmense vir die eerste keer seks en seksualiteit ondervind, wonder meisies en seuns reeds n geruime tyd oor al hierdie dinge. Ouers weet meestal nie hoe om sulke sensitiewe vrae te beantwoord nie en het nie noodwendig tyd om by te hou met wat in hul tienerkinders se koppe aangaan nie. Met die gevaar van ongekontroleerde bronne op die internet vandag, is dit belangrik om die regte inligting van n betroubare bron te verkry, en dis wat hierdie boek poog om te doen. Jan von Holleben het op by kreatiewe en prettige wyse die avontuur van grootword deur middel van fotos daargestel, en Antje Helms gee insiggewende antwoorde op n direkte, maar sensitiewe, manier. Die boek bied antwoorde op allerhande vrae oor puberteit en seks wat jongmense nie noodwendig vir hul ouers wil vra nie.

"From the top of your head to the tips of your toes Learn all about health from a cool cat who knows!" In this delightful book, Dr. Seuss' famous Cat in the Hat explains to young readers all the different ways to stay healthy.

By presenting the facts in a lively and rhythmic manner, they provide the critical foundation upon which complex facts and ideas can eventually be built.

Free Lunch (Hardcover): Rex Ogle Free Lunch (Hardcover)
Rex Ogle
R255 Discovery Miles 2 550 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Free Lunch is the story of Rex Ogle's first semester in sixth grade. Rex and his baby brother often went hungry, wore secondhand clothes, and were short of school supplies, and Rex was on his school's free lunch program. Grounded in the immediacy of physical hunger and the humiliation of having to announce it every day in the school lunch line, Rex's is a compelling story of a more profound hunger-that of a child for his parents' love and care. Compulsively readable, beautifully crafted, and authentically told with the voice and point of view of a 6th-grade kid, Free Lunch is a remarkable debut by a gifted storyteller.

A timely, contemporary novel challenging ideas around health - our own and our planet's - and the stigma that persists around illness, by Printz Medallist and internationally bestselling novelist, Marcus Sedgwick. Ash has lived in eight states in as many years. Mom has gone walkabout, but stepdad Jack is like a father, and stepbrother Bly the best anyone could wish for. When Bly goes missing too, Ash sets off to search for him - and finds something much bigger: the sickness of the world. Arriving in Snowflake, Arizona, Ash discovers Bly living with a community 6000 feet high in the wide red desert. They call themselves the Canaries and all suffer from some kind of environmental illness. They are ostracised by modern society, as it continues to ignore climate change, global warming and so much more of our self-inflicted poisoning of the planet. When Ash takes ill, the doctor's response is, 'it's all in your mind'. In a story spanning seven years with triumphs and tragedies, Ash learns how to live as the world is pushed to a point of no return. This humane and deeply thoughtful novel is about resilience, trust, family and love.
