Inclusive books and Websites on Puberty & Bodies

The Every Body Book: The LGBTQ+ Inclusive Guide for Kids about Sex, Gender, Bodies, and Families – An illustrated LGBTQ+ inclusive kid’s guide to sex, gender and relationships education that includes children and families of all genders and sexual orientations, covering puberty, hormones, consent, sex, pregnancy and safety.

You-ology – What if learning about changing bodies wasn’t secretive or shameful? And what if it could even be inclusive, fun, and, well, kind of adorable? A new kind of puberty guide, You-ology embraces an inclusive approach that normalizes puberty for all kids.

Traditional puberty education only contributes to a sense of isolation and often does not include all kids’ experience of puberty and leaves kids with questions about how puberty will affect their friends and classmates. For curious kids and parents looking to talk about puberty in an inclusive way, You-ology offers fact-based, age appropriate, and body positive information about the physical, social, and emotional changes ahead for all kids.

Colorful illustrations keep the tone upbeat and engaging, while short stories featuring a cast of diverse characters add relatability and humor.

Day One RI

Day One is dedicated to providing support to survivors of sexual assault.

As we work to create a community that is free of sexual violence, we strive to empower individuals and communities through treatment, intervention, and prevention services. We work diligently to educate and advocate for systemic changes that will improve the response to sexual abuse through public policy initiatives and legislation.

You can contact Day One directly, or when a sexual assault is reported; the Victims of Crime Helpline, law enforcement, or the Attorney General’s Office also refers victims to Day One for trauma-informed care and advocacy. We provide advocates and therapeutic treatment services to children, youth, and adults across the state of Rhode Island.
