  • Other questions children often ask
  • Open-ended questions.

The basic and commonly asked question sections provide a series of questions with brief answers to further stimulate learning and discussion. The section ‘Other questions children often ask’ contains a variety of questions, including those about consent, identity, sexual health and safety.

✔ A large amount of useful information that considers practical questions children might have.

✔ Good level of detail for the suggested age group.

✘ Only contains text with questions and answers divided into 5 sections which are then swiped through sequentially, so it's not possible to search for specific topic areas.

✘ Visual presentation is plain.
