This is the second book in the God's Design For Sex series, written for children ages 5-8. With candid, age-appropriate language and realistic illustrations, Before I Was Born explains: God's love and the goodness of all He has made, the nurturing family as God's context for love, why God wants each baby to have both a mommy and a daddy, pregnancy as God's way to care for a baby until birth, the specialness of being made a boy or a girl, and proper names for private body parts.

This resource is featured in our curriculum guide, Against the Tide for elementary school.

What GOV Says: This book was written by Christian psychologists, and we like it because it is designed to be an opener into discussion between parents and children. The book does explain, in an age-appropriate and non-descriptive way, what sex is. While the authors recommend this book for 5-8, we have found that for some children, especially home-schoolers, 6-10 is sometimes more appropriate. We feel it is very important for parents to go through this book with their children.
