Great Book Jan 12, 2009
This book breaks everything down, so I easy for the child to understand and I also help to parent not to feel so uncomfortable about talking about the subject.
Great Book Jan 11, 2009
This is a wonderful book for girls entering puberty and those already in their teens. My girls ages 14 and 8 have gotten a lot of information from it and it has lead to discussions about even more. I highly recommend this book to anyone with girls.
great book Jan 6, 2009
great book to use with girls as an intro to your body and how it works. child friendly pictures and very basic concepts.
Great Ice breaker Jan 3, 2009
This is a terrific ice breaker for parents who need a little help with discussing the changes that young girls must go through. Loved it!! My daughter loved it as well--she carried this book around like a bible. This is a must have resource!
Timing is everything Dec 30, 2008
This book provides much detail across all areas of growing up. It is not easy to figure out the best timing for giving this to your daughter. Mine is almost 10 and has many physical signs of puberty except for her actual period. She was very upset that I presented her with the book and I offered to go through it with her together. We covered a couple of very easy topics to get through and then she said 'no more'. She is just not emotionally ready so the book will be there for her when she needs it. On item to note: the section on tampons is pretty graphic and I think suited for a true teenager with some experience with menstrual cycles. Certainly not for a young girl entering the early stages of puberty.
