V is for Vulva: An Illustrated Children's Book

by Jemma (follow)
An introduction to the reproductive organs of the human body for 4-5-year-olds.

Project co-ordinators Nova Halfwilde, Jasmine Floyd and Calum Rodger have long been discussing the lack of inclusive resources for young children about their bodies and reproductive functions. With concerns around how hyper-sexualised social media, porn and the internet have lead to disillusioned ideas of sex, this creates false representations on how bodies look, in particular, the vulva, once children have grown up. Subsequently, young children exposed to these things are starting their journey into adulthood with a warped understanding of sex and their bodies.

Introducing 'V is for Vulva', this is an inclusive, body positive and gender-neutral introduction to the human reproductive organs for young children. This educational picture book aimed at 4-5-year-olds breaks down the confusion surrounding the idea of what our genitalia actually looks like by showing how our bodies differ on a spectrum.


Beautifully illustrated by Jasmine Floyd with writing support from Calum Rodger, the folk throughout the ‘V is for Vulva’ book are diverse, gender-neutral and inclusive. The book also touches on topics like consent, periods, cervical fluid and childbirth and there's a full glossary and ‘further discussion’ points to encourage more conversation between adult and child and to allow for more bonding and learning opportunities.
