NavPress God's Design for Sex Series, Book 1: The Story of Me, Revised

It's never too early to begin giving your child a practical understanding of his or her unique, beautiful body and why God designed it to be exactly the way it is. The Story of Me is the first book in the God's Design for Sex series, written to be read to children ages 3 to 5. With candid, age-appropriate language and realistic illustrations, The Story of Me 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
  • The specialness of being made a boy or a girl
  • Proper names for private body parts

    "Tell me my story again, Daddy!" Little Paul Jackson loves to hear his parents tell him the story of where he came from. And so, beginning all the way back when God knew and loved him before he was born, and brought his parents together to love each other and to have a little boy to love, Paul's parents explain to Paul where he came from and how and why God made him. Paul participates along the way with questions and comments of his own, about himself and his baby sister. At the end, Paul exclaims, "I love that story! I love to know how God made me!" His father replies, "It's a wonderful story, Paul. It is one of the most wonderful stories there is." This winsome book beautifully tells its story with wholesome, simple, honest content accompanied by delightful paintings to illustrate the text, and is charmingly realistic in its portrayal of this interaction between godly, loving parents and their young child.

    Spend a few special moments with your child and The Story of Me, sharing the stories of God's wonderful love and the marvelous body that is His special gift!

    It talks about a mother loving their baby and knowing give it everything it needs and sometimes that mother gives her baby to a new mommy and daddy. It's an excellent book and does a good job to include all children.

    This book only touches on all the topics; it doesn't go into anything in great detail. So after it talks about how God only wants people who are married to have children and why, it has a small paragraph about adoption. It just says that sometimes a mommy knows she will not be able to give her baby everything it needs and so she lets another mommy and daddy adopt her baby, and they will love and care for the baby. Then it moves on.

    It does mention adoption in the book in a gentle way. I think it would be okay. It says that "Sometimes a mother knows she will not be able to give everything her baby needs. This mother might let another mommy and daddy adopt her baby. They will love and care for the baby." Even though the child is adopted, it will still give them an understanding of how a baby grows inside its mother.

    The book is written as if a child is asking his parents the story of how he was created & born. There is a place in the book where is says "Sometimes a mother knows she will not be able to give everything her baby needs. This mother might let another mommy & daddy adopt her baby. They will love & care for the baby." I think that is the only refrence to adoption in the first book.

    answer 5
    This book is good and yet very detailed. It answers the taught questions with accurate truthful information, that reiterates God's design for marriage, sex, and family.

    For an adopted child, depending on how you have chosen to discuss this matter with the child (Depending if you have expressed openly their adoption to them), I could foresee this book potentially being a problem. Book 1 (age 3-5 -I suggest 5-7) reads as though the child is asking direct questions to his mom, and she is answering him back. The questions are direct to the experience of growing inside of her stomach, umbilical cords, breastfeeding, and such. Basically the whole concept of the book is the pregnancy and delivery. Since the book is so tightly wound on this principal I would be worried that it may cause the child to feel alienated do to their incredible circumstance. ( I wish the book would have added adoption to show how this also is an awesome part of God's special plan for their life)

    Book 2 (ages 5-8 I suggest 7-10) talks more about the design for marriage and actual conception and changes in the body, in great detail. It draws less focus, in my opinion, from the biological status to more of the mechanics of our working bodies.

    I hope this helps you get a mored detailed idea of the book so that you can make an informed decision.

    This book does address the issue of adoption by saying that some parents are better able to provide what a baby needs, so the child was given to new parents who could give that love and support.

    Since each child is different, discernment is required of the parents to determine if it is suitable for their child.
