5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect book for younger girls
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on May 3, 2019
I've just skim read this book before giving it to my 9yo (Year 5) daughter. It covers puberty (body changes, emotions, breast growth, bras) and periods as well as washing, keeping fit, eating healthily, positive body image etc. It DOES NOT cover sex or relationships, which was exactly what I was after at this stage. I'm very impressed and although it has the odd American term, it won't cause a problem in my daughter's understanding (e.g. candy instead of sweets).

The book has a mix of quite large text (ideal for less confident readers), lots of colourful pictures and then the rest is little bits of writing around the pictures. Lots of really good information in little bitesized chunks. I would say this book is ideal for primary school ages, maybe up to Y7 or Y8 depending on maturity level. There is a second book that is for older girls, covering sex and relationships, which based on this book, we'll definitely get.

I also bought the accompanying journal (see photo) and it is also brilliant. A great way for my daughter to engage with this book and I would recommend it too.
