Virtual Book Tour: Bork Reveals the Real Deal about the Facts of Life

Sunday, July 28th, 2013

Today’s gift:  we are part of a virtual book tour!

My So-Called Sensory Life was selected to be part of a book tour for a book for boys about the facts of life.

As mom to twins (one boy), this book is perfect and I’m thrilled to tell you about it.  There are so many books for girls about the facts of life but not many for boys.

Until now!

Bork Reveals the Real Deal about the Facts of Life is a witty and humorous description of puberty, adolescence, sex and reproduction. The main character, Bork, leads fellow preteen boys on a journey through everything from physical growth and development to shaving and reproduction. All of the essential, factual information is conveyed in a way that is easy to understand. The amusing and edgy style of this book will appeal to boys ranging from nine to twelve years old. Bork empowers them with easy-to-understand facts, while the interactive element called “Real Deal Action Challenges” promotes understanding through simple and entertaining activities.

Filled with fun and appropriate illustrations and graphics as well as boxed facts, the book hits a home run for boys age 10 and up.

My son and I dove into the book (along with Dad) and had fun reading, discussing, and casually addressing a big topic.

Author Terri Trenchard gives parents and boys an entertaining and educational book that will make the whole family feel confident about facing all the facts of life and growing up.  Terri has a master’s degree in Education and Human Development from The George Washington University, and a bachelor’s with a concentration in Psychology from Bucknell University. A Mom of two, she is currently developing a similar title, “Corky Gives the Whole Scoop about the Facts of Life” for girls, as well as additional titles about topics of interest to young adults, including summer jobs and college.  We can’t wait!

I plan to recommend this book to everyone–other parents, schools, even pediatricians.

I give an A + (and most importantly so did my son) and I know you will, too.
