Show Me!: A Picture Book of Sex for Children and Parents

Subject

Children's Non-Fiction

Description

Originally published in Germany, this is a sex-education book aimed at helping parents teach their children about discovering and exploring their sexuality. The book contains numerous photos of children and adults alike.

While some saw it as an educational tool, others saw it as child pornography. As such, the book has been subject to child pornography laws in Canada and the US. Though the book was never banned in Germany, it was taken off the market in 1996. By that time over one million copies in seven languages had been sold.
