    I have an 11 year old daughter She has two sisters ages 9 and 8 So as you can imagine, I have some interesting days ahead In addition to very open and honest talks with my daughter, I began looking for some good resources to help my daughters through this transition time as they mature into womanhood Some books I saw gave too much information, complete with explicit pictures, and those would not have been appropriate for the very first introduction to puberty Some that I saw gave good infor I have an 11 year old daughter She has two sisters ages 9 and 8 So as you can imagine, I have some interesting days ahead In addition to very open and honest talks with my daughter, I began looking for some good resources to help my daughters through this transition time as they mature into womanhood Some books I saw gave too much information, complete with explicit pictures, and those would not have been appropriate for the very first introduction to puberty Some that I saw gave good information, but also included standards that were not conservative like how to have a clean tattoo or how pink hair might be just your way of expressing yourself sigh Some had only physiological information and nothing from a spiritual standpoint I settled on this one and I ve been happy with it My daughter enjoyed reading it, first of all It was made for the tween age It s not boring It s not long Nancy Rue set it up as a devotional book There are lots of places to write and make check lists There are only nine chapters about what is going on with her body While the pages are filled with cartoon pictures, none are explicit There are no illustrations of a naked or near naked body The most personal pictures would be a drawing of the uterus and ovaries, drawings of maxi pads, tampons, and bras not on a girl There is talk of menstruation and body anatomy and changes Let s just say there is enough information in there to make a boy blush Nancy Rue didn t go into ALL there is to know There is no information about the mechanics of sex, neither is there any information about a boy s changes And I liked that I prefer to talk about that myself with my daughter Mostly, though there is a LOT about attitude during emotional times, keeping the temple of the Holy Spirit healthy, and drawing near to God So this was a good book to start off this season in life It opened the door for my daughter to ask mequestions and for me to keep those doors open with her I look forward to reviewing her other books in this series.Readof my book reviews on MostlySensible.com

    This was a great book for prepubescent girls to learn about what to expect in puberty I love how it was very positive about the beauty of the woman s body and how her cycle is an important and good thing This book is good at encouraging loving and respecting your body as God created it to be It was easy to read with clear concise answers for young girls to the questions they may have and encouraged girls to discuss questions and concerns with a trusted woman ideally their mom, but listed way This was a great book for prepubescent girls to learn about what to expect in puberty I love how it was very positive about the beauty of the woman s body and how her cycle is an important and good thing This book is good at encouraging loving and respecting your body as God created it to be It was easy to read with clear concise answers for young girls to the questions they may have and encouraged girls to discuss questions and concerns with a trusted woman ideally their mom, but listed ways to find other good options, if talking to mom is not an option I can see how girls would easily read and relate to this book with it s facts, QAs, tips and journal prompts This book has made the cut as one of the books I will utilize to help my three girls navigate puberty
