My daughter just started 5th grade and her school sent home a permission slip to teach her about sex education. I want to be the first one to explain to her but I don't know how to explain it to her in words that she will understand. Any advice mommies?

I started with my oldest child Julie with the book All about Me. Its by American Girl I think. We read it together slowly, chapter by chapter and it lead to open discussions for us. She will be 15 soon. I bought the book her 3rd grade year. She is very open with me even though some things are awkward. I really think it helped break the ice. I wanted to be the one also not school to inform my child. Now over the summer I began reading it with our daughter who is a 3rd grader this year.
