SHOW ME : A Picture Book of Sex for Children and Parents
Photography and Captions by Will McBride
Explanatory Text by Dr. Helga Fleischhauer-Hardt
Show Me! is an explicit, thoughtful, and affectionate picture book designed to satisfy children's curiosity about sex and sexuality—their own as well as that of their elders. In a series of sixty-nine beautiful double-page photographs, accompanied by a running commentary assembled from actual reactions of children to the photographs, it explains and illustrates sexual development from infancy through adulthood. An illustrated text at the back of the book spells out the educational, ethical, and psychological significance of the pictures, and supplies complete information on human reproduction, love, sexuality, sexual experimentation, and marriage. This explanatory section, by a noted child psychologist, will help parents discuss with their children the pictures in the earlier part of the book.
Show Me! drops the euphemistic double-talk of the past in favor of frankness, candor, humor—and love. Because it recognizes that sexuality is not the province of adults alone, nor its sole purpose procreation, it does not artificially limit discussion to e ethe facts of life." Show Me! is the first book to present to children in an aesthetically beautiful format total information on the entire range of human sexuality. The authors hope that in this way the book "will serve parents and children as a source of information and facilitate their passage to a more happy sexuality, one marked by love, tenderness, and responsibility."

His work has appeared in Life, Look, Paris Match and in the major German magazines Stern and Jasmin. He photographed The Sex Book, which appeared in 1971.

Helga Fleischhauer-Hardt, born in 1936 in the German Rhineland, studied medicine in Freiburg, Tübingen, and Munich. From 1962 to 1964 she practiced at the regional psychiatric hospital in the Swiss canton of St. Gallen, and from 1963 to 1966 studied at the Psychoanalytic Institute in Zürich. Since 1969 Dr. Fleischhauer-Hardt has served as teacher and advisor at the School for Parent Education in Reinach, Basel, of which she was made president in 1974. In 197 374 she served as president of the Educational Advisory Board of Reinach. During her years as child therapist and parental advisor she realized that most parents had little knowledge of the sexual behavior and development of children, and that modern publications were doing little to fill the void. Dr. Fleischhauer-Hardt is the author of numerous articles on psychohygiene in children, and co-author of Sexual Education in School. She is married and the mother of three children.
