With two 9 year old girls, showing every sign of hitting puberty with a vengeance, I wanted to give them something they could refer to and, without embarrassment, chose topics to discuss with me/us. And this definitely hits the mark.
It is stuffed full of information and presented in such a matter-of-fact way that the girls are finding it easy to digest and understand.

Everything (including puberty, body hair, sex and spots) is covered - even boys are mentioned. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to supplement their 'birds and bees' chat with fuller information.

In addition, it was very well packaged and dispatched very quickly. A well-deserved 5*s.

A fantastic book and a great help! I am a panicking 24 year old mum with an 8 year old who has just started puberty. And whilst I was expecting it to happen I was hoping I had a bit more time!! There is very little literature about for girls that young, so this book was ideal. It was actually recommended to my by Social Services, whom I contacted for advice. It is very well written, easy for my daughter to understand, and it is pretty comprehensive. And you don't need to read it all at once, you can just look at the chapters that concern you right now, so the children wont get overwhelmed with information.

I had already started my periods about 3 years before they first discussed them in school.. and since I was so young I felt isolated and scared, and this book would have been very useful to me!

At least now I feel a bit more in control of the situation, and I am not so embarrassed which makes broaching the topic far easier.

Personally, I would consider this book a must for any mother of girls, and have even bought a few extra copies for my friend (even one for my friend whose child is only 2 lol).

I bought this book to educate my Grand daughters in the facts of life (sometimes a subject hard for parents to get across) this book is a favorite with the girls they feel free to browse it when they want and are able to understand the content as it has been written by an adult for children not for parents. When the subject comes up as it frequently does the girls now refer to it as "THE BOOK" a must for any parent who is concerned for their kids future.

I bought this book for my nine year old as there has been some discussion about sex between her classmates and thought it was a good time to discuss it with her before she starts middle school. However, I personally feel that this book is a little advanced for my daughter at this point as it goes into more depth than I feel she needs at the moment, for example, I do not think that she needs to know the slang terms for masturbation etc. It is also very wordy, with a few black and white cartoon illustrations. I will put this book away and give it to her in a few years time when it will be more relevant. In the meantime I will be on the search for a more age appropriate book.

Originally bought for my 9 year old daughter however on scanning through it before giving it to her, I felt that it was too sophisticated for her age and have therefore given it to my 13 year old step-daughter instead. Looks like a very good book, but more appropriate for a teenager in my view (and I'm a pretty relaxed Mum)!

Great book for my 11 year old daughter, perhaps wouldn't give it to a younger child. She read it cover to cover in a couple of days. Really recommend.

Thought this was the A4 sized picture book version I had as a child, but jazzed up a bit. No, be warned, this is a novel, black and white only, hardly any pictures, about the size of a Harry Potter book. Boring, you would have to trawl through it to gather the information. Hardly the point of the subject matter.
