Growing Up: It's a Girl Thing : Straight Talk about First Bras, First Periods, and Your Changing Body
This follow-up to the highly-acclaimed It's a Girl Thing: How to Stay Healthy, Safe, and, in Charge is the perfect introduction to puberty aimed at a slightly younger audience, particularly girls age 9-11. Focusing on puberty and the changes that accompany it, this scaled down version of the original book answers questions for girls who are curious about the transformations their bodies will soon undergo. Exploring such topics as hormones, female anatomy, first bras (and how to find the right one), and finally, first periods, this book clearly and honestly explains the facts that prepubescent girls will need, and want, to know. Mavis Jukes's trademark wit and anecdotes are once again sprinkled throughout, creating a level of fun and accessibility not often associated with books of this nature, and Debbie Tilley's delightful black and white illustrations will once again provide warmth and humor.
