As a single dad its difficult to try to explain all the changes that an adolescent girl is about to experience; I know the mechanics but not the emotions etc. I thought this book was excellent in explaining all of this to my daughter and I think it made things less embarrassing and easier for her.
This book is wonderful for young girl, to learn about their bodies and the changes that will take place. Very well written.

I bought this book for my 9 year old daughter. We had already discussed the "big changes" that were on the way and this book was a good way to follow up our talk. She even wanted to read parts of the book with me. I liked that it was informative without being too graphic. Would recommend!
this is a great read for young girls who want to know what will be happening to them. My daughter's pediatrician recommended this book to me and glad she did.
- Did the image onsite match the product? yes

I have struggled with my nine-year-old daughter trying to convince her she is growing up and now requires a little more personal hygiene maintenance. She loves this book. I think it is less embarrassing for her to read about it in the book. She now comes to me with questions and instigates conversation about her body and issues surrounding puberty. This book has helped her to feel more secure about her body I believe because it helps her to understand that her body has a purpose with functioning systems.
This book was recommended to me by a friend and I bought it for my daughter's 10th birthday. She couldn't put it down and kept coming to me with questions!! It's a great overview for girls--a kind of what to expect in the next few years. The book opened up communication and it's been wonderful to have those teaching moments.
This book was truly a Godsend to my daughter. We talked about her growing up and things that would and should happen, but being a kid she had questions about my information she needed verified. Typically a kid, right? Well, this book not only backed up my info, she actually asked me if I helped write it, it was so dead on to what I had been telling her! She read the whole book in one sitting and refers to it on and off when she thinks she needs to. She liked it so much she asked if I could get another for her best friend. I can't, it's not my place, but talking to her mother about it will be a good start to help the girl get the info she may need. I would recommend this book to anyone that has a preteen in early stages of puberty as a stepping stone to better conversations about growing up. It has helped us quite a bit in those talks. My daughter loves this book.
This Book is a great book dealing with Puberty for young girls. There are a couple of pictures in the book that my daughter thinks is disgusting. She hates the book right now but it will be there for her to look at and help her out when she goes through adolescence.
This book is an excellent source of information. It's nice to read together and for her to explore on her own also. I gave it to my 9 year old in a "starter kit" I made for her. I included things she'll need when the time comes and some other things talked about in the book like her own hair brush, face wash & lotion, deodorant, a small manicure set, and even a new cd so she can dance to it for exercise. I put it all in a pretty box I got from a local craft store so she can keep it out of site of her younger siblings. This book includes everything a girl needs to know from top to bottom about taking care of herself and what kind of changes to expect from her body.
This is a great book for parents of girls heading into adolescence. It explains how a girl's body changes in the least embarassing & still factual terms. Easy to understand the language. My daughter & I read most of it together, then have follow up conversations about it as questions arise. Highly recommend
My daughter was given this book and the companion journal. It is the best book I have seen explaining the changes girls will experience including physical and emotional changes. We sat down and read this book several times when my daughter was 8. She felt very informed and when the changes started she wasn't afraid and we were able to talk very openly about how she was feeling or dealing with situations. It is written in the typical Americal Girls format including "letters" from girls with Dear Abby-style answers. NO S*X-Ed INCLUDED! It is written for a prepubescent audience. It covers topics such as: emotional changes, keeping your body and hair clean, menstrual changes and the basic feminine products, breast development, body shapes (how we are all different), healthy diet, exercise and oral hygeine. I just gave this book to a single dad's daughter and we scanned through it together. It is the least embarrassing and most appealing book on the subject for girls that I have ever seen. Enjoy!
My daughter LOVES this book. Answers all of her "girly" questions that she is too nervous to ask about. She gets on the phone with her friends who have it, and you can hear them in there saying "turn to page 32! can you BELIEVE IT?!" lol
