This book was fully funded on Kickstarter!


The P Word: A Manual for Mammals shares everything your kids want to know about the penis, but are too afraid to ask. This book was created to help pre-puberty kids who have a penis understand why they have one, the way their penis keeps their body healthy, and what they can expect as they get older and closer to puberty starting.


As the definitive resource about the penis for kids, The P Word provides the tools kids need to recognize and name their body parts, understand when something might be wrong, and practice good hygiene.


Dr. Cara Natterson, New York Times Bestselling Author of Guy Stuff and The Care and Keeping of You says, "Finally, a factually fascinating, completely charming book about one particular body part that deserves normalized scientific conversation."


As an animal expert, author Dr. David L. Hu includes fascinating mammal facts and comparisons to help kids understand that the penis is a natural, normal, and wildly diverse body part. By including fun and fascinating content about mammals, the conversations (and illustrations) become light-hearted and fun!


The best thing about The P Word? You can give it to your child for them to read at their own pace. It’s formatted to include the questions kids ask, uses language that doesn’t single kids out, and includes mammals to discuss the penis from a biological perspective, rather than addressing gender or using exclusive terminology.
