'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

Some negative reviews complain that it covers sex/how babies are made etc.- and that they're going to give the book to their daughters when they're 12-13.....errr...they're going to have heard/discussed many, many myths and horror stories by that age! A review from an 11yr old actually says that the book DOESN'T cover things she wanted to know....emphasising my belief it's a good 'starter' book.
These mums had also bought it for their 8-9yr old daughters....I'm sorry, but a simple little talk with them at that age about what's happening to them (it's just your body changing as you start changing from a little girl into a teenager) is in my opinion a more suitable option than presenting them with ANY book on the subject- I imagine books on this subject are all aimed at age 9+ and will include ALL topics to do with puberty to reassure and inform the child that what's happening is 'normal'!
I'd much rather she had the basic facts, and let her explore how the information makes her feel than have her head filled with rubbish in the playground! Love this book and will be recommending it to my friends with daughters of similar ages.
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
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
