Product Description

Review

'Look no further: the What's Happening to Me? Books are nothing short of brilliant. They aim to help children aged nine and above understand bodily changes and they do this extremely well.Susan Meredith answers the questions young girls want to ask but might feel afraid to. It's all there: getting measured up for a bra, periods, using towels and tampons, feeling, diet, health and hygiene and there is also a section on what happens to boys.The text is informal, chatty, full of useful facts and packed with considerate advice and support. A book like that wouldn't work as well without graphics and diagrams, and the illustrations are colourful and engaging as well as informative' - TES Magazine

I bought this book for my 9yr old daughter who is going through early puberty. Very child-friendly (there aren't many books on this topic that are aimed at the younger end of the puberty age range).It's very well written, nicely laid out so it doesn't look daunting! Easily understood and with good diagrams. It does mention a couple of topics I would have preferred to leave until later (ie masturbation and sex), but only one or two sentences. It's good for explaining why puberty causes mood swings, spots and sore bits. I have recommended this book to several friends, my daughter loves it and has read it cover to cover several times.

hiya,
I was 9 or 10 when got this book,I got it at a school book fair.
This book is okay but it does not give all the infomation i need(i am now 11 using mums account). If you are 9 or something it would be better for you but if not i would go for GIRLS ONLY! as it is a great book and even has little speech bubbles for people who have wrote in.
but still a good bookxxx

Format: Paperback
I received this book today for my daughter.
I have to say.... I think it is fab.
It's vey well presented and lets the kids know what to expect in their own language and lets them know it's ok not to feel the same way about things as everyone else.
My daughter is 10 and feels shy talking to me about these things especially sex, and while i dont want to her know the full ins and outs (pardon the pun) i would rather she heard it from me, or a book i have given her to what she hears in the school playground. Lets face it, they hear a lot!!!!
The way the actual act of sex is described (I) feel is'nt too indepth especially compared to other books, and again it talks about 'making love' and 'make people feel good AND bad'
The part at the back about the boys surprised me at first, as a bit too much detail, but, after reading it, I think it is about the right
amount, girls need to know that boys have issues too!!!!
Sorry to go on so much but I found this a very hard subject to find the right book on, now i've found it i will be telling anyone who will listen to me LOL

I am surprised at a reviewer finding this too explicit as I looked long and hard at many books on this subject and this was the only one with enough detail to explain yet not so much to scare a child. Somebody who finds this too explicit may simply not be ready to cover this subject with their child.

Format: Paperback
I had already bought the book 'The Little Book of Growing Up' which I found absolutely fantastic and wanted to move on to a book which dealt with other issues in a little more detail. When the book arrived I read it fully before giving it to my daughter who is 10. I am now returning the book as I really dont feel my daughter needs to know about feeling sexually attracted to other people, masturbation and orgasms at this early stage...(however short the sentences regarding these issues were...they were still addressed!)
I am a young Mum and no prude at all. I am also a nurse working with school age children but I am quite concerned about some points raised. It is a shame as the rest of the book is very well done with excellent diagrams. The points raised about health and body image are also very well explained.I fully understand that these particular issues will arise eventually and I will then have to deal with them...but I feel I myself will perhaps be able to explain them in a more delicate way.

Easy to understand,with the right amount of information. I was worried to share this with my 10 year old,but need not have been.She found it easy to read and picks it up regularly if worried about anything.

Got this for my 9 year old daughter. Nice format and clear language. Content appropriate for pre-teen, nothing too scary but explains the questions asked at this age well.

I never leave reviews, but I'll make an exception for this one!
My daughter is just 9, and the first signs of puberty are appearing, so I needed to explain what was happening. She has no previous knowledge of puberty, sex or any related subject.
This book is written in concise and informative sections covering everything you need it to; periods, boobs and bras, hair in new places, sex, emotions, spots, exercise, eating well, keeping clean, and everything else you can think of! I can honestly say that at no point have I felt that anything relevant was overlooked. It also has a section about changes in boys (I think there is a 'boy' version of this book available too).
It's beautifully illustrated in colour throughout, and has easy to understand diagrams where appropriate.
It's taken much of the mystery and fear out of what could have been a scary time for her, and has opened the way for us to have sensible but lighthearted chats about how she will change in the coming years. I must admit that broaching the subject with her was a terrifying thought, but this book has got the ball rolling.
It's appropriate for approximately age 9 - 12 (although would probably be OK for slightly younger/older girls too), and is written in a way that is easy to read and in language she understands - proper names and scientific terms are all explained too.
I cannot recommend this book highly enough, and as my daughter has read it 3 times in the few days since she received it, I guess she'd recommend it highly too!
