Product Description

Product Description

Just as boys headed straight to last season’s The Boy’s Body Book for information and reassurance, this companion volume is destined to become the go-to guide for adolescent females. Fun to read and easy to carry, it answers all the important questions about becoming a woman that girls are sometimes too embarrassed to ask. From hygiene to exercise, teachers to peer pressure, everything’s discussed here, in a frank and friendly way: parents that drive you crazy, boys who’ve caught your eye, best friends, physical changes and menstruation, schools and grades, body image and proper nutrition, and moodiness and other emotional stuff. Sections on high school, part-time jobs, and even career planning will feed a girl’s dreams of the future. This entertaining, enlightening, and joyously illustrated look at growing up will be a staple of every girl’s bookshelf for generations to come.

From School Library Journal
Grade 4–7—Dunham provides honest answers to girls' most pressing (and embarrassing) questions. The text reassures girls entering puberty that their changing bodies and feelings are perfectly normal. Breast development, body hair, and menstruation are explained along with practical information about bras and sanitary products. The later chapters discuss the emotional side of entering adolescence—one's changing relationships with friends and family and the effects of surging hormones. The author maintains the neutrality of a good healthcare provider and does not waver into a lecture. However, the "Notes from a Real Girl" passages don't always ring true. They sound like a real girl who was an adolescent in the 1980s. Overall, the book's tone and lively cartoon illustrations are friendly and nonthreatening. While this title does not stand out as groundbreaking or new, it's still a solid choice for basic information about puberty.—Elaine Baran Black, Georgia Public Library Service, Atlanta

4.0 out of 5 stars My daughter loves it 12 Jun 2011
Bought as my daughter is 9 and getting curious about what she hears at school from some of her friends and the older children.
It covers a wide range of topics in language appropriate for her age, not only the physical but about feelings and emotions too.
Only reason not given all the stars as it is a USA author and it has not been edited for UK so the helpful website details and other links at the back of the book are not relevant to us over the pond, just a small gripe really.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to Understand 28 Dec 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bought this book after it was recommended by a friend. It is ideal for young girls who want to know more but are either wary of asking mum or want to be a bit of finding out for themselves first and then ask questions.

It covers a wide range of topics - things that we as parents may not always consider important .. yet.

This book was just perfect for my 9 year old. Enough of the information she wanted without introducing subjects she wasn't ready for.

4.0 out of 5 stars Informative but not too in depth 28 Feb 2014
By hrw81
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I chose this book as it seems many of the puberty books go into ridiculous detail about things like anal sex and STDs, things my ten year old just does not need to know yet. She enjoyed reading it and found it informative.
