A look inside
Beyond Birds & Bees
Bonnie J. Rough never expected to write a book about sex, but life handed her a revelation too vital to ignore. Beyond Birds & Bees is her provocative inquiry into how we teach our children about bodies, sex, relationships and equality—with eye-opening, practical takeaways from the author's research and the world-famous Dutch approach.

"Bonnie J. Rough has written a brilliant book about sex, gender, justice, and joy, and it's one that manages to be simultaneously sobering and buoyant. Her main ingredients for raising healthy kids--wonder, humor, and trust--constitute a kind of inspirational worldview, applicable to all aspects of parenting certainly, but even beyond that, to life itself. I'm so glad I read it (except for how I want to move to Amsterdam now)."
- Catherine Newman, author of Catastrophic Happiness, Waiting for Birdy, and One Mixed-Up Night
"With care and clarity, Bonnie J. Rough breathes new life into our national non-conversation about sex. Taking her cues from other countries' sensible approaches, she guides us gently towards a saner and healthier future."
