Thanks to everyone who wrote in with advice.

So far, the issue has been kept to the child's behavior -- Children  
should not be harassing one another on the school bus.  The book has  
not been challenged.  Interestingly, children from grades 2 on up  
have been VERY interested in borrowing books about the human body.   
We don't have any with graphic or lascivious pictures.  Even the one  
in question had cross-section, function-only illustrations.  I'm  
quite relieved that things seem to have quieted down.  If a formal  
challenge bubbles up, I'll let you know!

I do believe that it is important for children to have access to the  
information they seek.  Obviously, we don't have sex ed. materials  
available on the open stacks.  (They're in the parent section.)  I  
wish we didn't have to worry so much.

Take care & enjoy the weekend,
