This review is from: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Periods (Hardcover)
Statistics show that children are reaching puberty at an earlier age than ever before. There is a need for a clear way to present the information a child would need, but in a way that is accesible. The dilemma of what to tell, and in what detail is addressed by the use of a question and answer format, with real cases discussed. I did find the book to be not as attractive to children as I had hoped it would be, and I feel it is too technical for the 9 year old age group I had intended it for. The book does contain all the information needed to support a young teenager, but a parent will have to find a way of interpreting it for each childs needs.
I think the book is a good resource for older teenagers, but does not do as much to reassure or inform the increasing amount of 'early starters' as I had hoped.
