My Body's Changing: A Girl's Guide to Growing Up

by Anita Ganeri - £8.99  Hachette Children (2020)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781445163949 | ISBN 10: 1445163942

A simple and reassuring introduction to periods and body changes for young girls aged 7 and up.
 
This easy-to-understand, straightforward book gives clear advice for young readers who want to understand more about the changes in their body that happen during puberty. The clear, friendly approach explains what puberty is, what changes might happen from getting hairy to growing breasts, as well as explaining all about periods.
 
The book answers the many questions girls might have about periods, such as:
how long do periods last;
what are period pains;
how do I use sanitary products?
 
The book focuses purely on the changes happening to a girl's body during puberty with no mention of sex, which some younger children aren't ready to learn about. There is sensible advice about healthy eating, exercise and keeping clean, as well as how to tackle any emotional ups and downs and tips for boosting self-esteem. Questions and answers throughout will help dispel any myths and give gentle advice.
 
Suitable for all ages, and in particular for any young girls experiencing early puberty.
