I don’t know why illustrations of girl on toilet showing private area was necessary. Book is informative but some illustrations are questionable. Debating on giving to daughter will look for another book.

This is a great book for growing girls. There are different age appropriate topics for certain life changes that are written directly to the child.

I love this book. A great book to introduce her to puberty, and to let her know she's not alone. Breaks down a lot of good habits on how to take care of her body.

I bought this for my 9 year old to start the conversation around what is to come. She hasn't read all of it, but we started talking about hormones and body changes. It helps them to understand and provides a opening for questions and discussion.

My 9 year old daughter likes this. We’ve read parts of it together. It’s not too detailed but gives enough information that she understands and will ask me for more details if she wants to know more.

Still great

Target shopper - 2 years ago, Verified purchaser
I bought this for my friend’s 9-year-old daughter. He’s a single dad and was having trouble talking to her about puberty. Unfortunately, she’s an early bloomer so he needed to start talking about these things. He balked when I gave him the book and claimed she’d never read it as she hates reading. However, as soon as she opened it, she sat down and read through the entire book in one sitting. I’ve never seen her so focused. The book enabled her to ask questions and feel comfortable discussing things. Every few pages, she’d laugh and tell us something funny, or she’d open up about some concerns or questions she had. She’s feeling more confident about upcoming (and current) changes and her dad feels relief. This is a great way to open the dialogue and offer girls a source of information if they don’t feel comfortable asking adults. I highly recommend.

Bought as part of my 9 year olds birthday gift, is loving it! I did skim the entire book before giving it to her and definitely worth it. I wish I had this when I was younger. We’ve always been open about what happens as a girl gets older but thought it would be nice for her to read about it and if she has any questions she can ask us.

Each of my daughters have their own copy of this book. My 9 year old twins are very shy and not always comfortable asking questions or when we discuss “gross things”. Their older teenage sister and I talk about growing up, puberty etc but they’re not ready to be as open as we are which is fine. I got them their own copies of the book in hopes that it’ll answer some questions and help start conversations which it did. They asked their sister what her first period was like and then they asked me if I would do fun stuff for them like their sister. They’re also asking for things to help follow basic grooming advice like a wide tooth comb and a nail brush :-), which is really cute and easy to do for them. The books in this series have helped all three of my daughters and I will be buying more so each of my girls has their own book.

Great book to help introduce new body changes to a 10 year old. My daughter enjoyed reading it and it helped to open up discussions and answer questions she might have. We will definitely purchase the second book.
