   perfect for my 9 yo, and then my 7 yo.
When I began to notice that some of her friends were experiencing some of the same changes that my nine year old was not aware of, I realized that she was not seeing them herself. I wanted a book that was basic, but not childish, but I didn't want to open the door to intimate relationships, so this book was the perfect solution. It explains in an easy but not baby-ish way about the changes associated with puberty, uses appropriate illustrations and covers the basics. I will purchase the second book in a couple of years. My seven year old discovered the book and while I didn't feel it was applicable to her yet, she still asked appropriate questions. A great book and a spring board are needed for this important discussion.
   Perfect for growing girls
My 8 year old loves reading. We went over the basics alone after I got it for her. I left the book with her so she could read as she pleases, after we talked about the changes she will encounter. I did the same thing with my teen son and he found the book very useful. I have been trying to decide if my daughter is ready for the second book because she has been asking for it for a while. The book covers a lot of the topics of puberty. You never know when they will start, so I was ready for her to learn about those. Before handing it over, I would make sure to look through this first, to make sure you are okay with everything that goes along with it.
This book was bought for my granddaughter. She said the book was a good read and she learned a lot about herself. I wanted a book that was easy for her to understand and this book was perfect.
   Great into to read to tween
I got this book after our doctor told me to read with my nine year old. My nine year old was allowed to ask any questions while we read the book together. She keeps the book to reference. It was a good way to introduce subjects about body changes before they were heard about elsewhere. I would recommend it to others.
   Kids need to know so buy this book
If you can't think of a better way to introduce these topics, buy this book. It made my daughter uncomfortable when I gave her this. I would have done the same. A girl needs to be prepared so she can conquer life and not worry about menstruation.
   Don’t listen to negative reviews.
We bought this book and read it before giving it to our daughter. The book was mentioned in other reviews as promoting unhealthy body image. It is important for kids to know about a balanced diet as they grow up. This book is for you if you want to tell your kids that veggies and fruits are good for them. The book tells girls that what they see on TV is not realistic and that women come in all shapes, sizes, and abilities. The book encourages body positivity. I was happy that the book covered everything, even things I hadn't thought of.
   Teaches girls all the ways their bodies can be wrong
Why being fat is gross and must be avoided at all costs is one of the topics taught in this book. It is normal to dislike your body. How to do a diet. Bras should not be worn in bright colors. People who partake of alcohol are terrible and gross.
   Good starter book - be ready for questions!
The book is written in a way that doesn't judge. It was a great introduction for the younger girls. Don't expect to hand this to your kid and just leave it there, you'll need to be there to follow it up with discussions and answer questions. This makes parenting easier and gives your child some power to find her own answers.
   Good information for the most part, needs tweaks
It is a good beginners book for young girls. I had to correct some issues. She should laugh if friends made fun of her. I had to point out that the men in her life are also capable of helping her if she needs it, because the book makes it clear that they think only women can handle it.
   Good info, told in a fun/relatable way.
The book was from American Girl. The book has changed my view of them. It has a lot of good facts. My 7 year old can read and comprehend. I like how they talk about puberty. It is just another thing about your body. It is recommended to my friends with girls 7 and up.
