Spring has sprung and so have the family life talks at school! Here’s just what you need to go along with “all those talks” they are having at school — either in the classroom — or inevitably on the bus or at the lunch table.  Bork and his Real Deal book, along with Corky and her Whole Scoop, give growing girls and boys everything they need to know (but only what they need to know) about puberty and the basicsof reproduction.  With rave reviews from moms, you’ll find it a welcomed resource.
