I purchased this book for my 9 year old daughter who is eager to learn about her changing body. This an excellent book. Although my daughter is quite precocious, some of the content seemed a bit to mature for her. It still is a wondeful, informative book, but keep in mind there may be touchy areas depending on your level of comfort. You may decide to read it fully ( not just skim through) to decide which areas if any might need to wait.
Publishers Weekly, 1996-02-19 With the help of her 15-year-old niece, Karen Gravelle hits her mark with this accessible guide for adolescent girls. Frank and at times funny, the book focuses on changes that occur during puberty, specifically those accompanying menstruation. Though the scope is, intentionally, not as comprehensive as many handbooks on adolescence, the authors address nitty-gritty, practical details not usually included in such tomes (e.g., tips on improvising a sanitary pad). In addition to answering a range of "What if?" questions that would be embarrassing for many girls to ask, the authors also cover such subjects as what to expect from a visit to a gynecologist; living with pimples, cramps and "weird emotions"; and how to communicate better with parents. A comforting chapter about physical development draws an important distinction between being "normal" and being "like everyone else." Though sometimes silly or clich?ed, Palen's cartoon illustrations echo the candor of the text and reinforce its kid-friendly approach. Ages 8-up. (Mar.)
