Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 3 Up This clearly written handbook on physical and emotional changes in young people fills a real need for material on physical and emotional development which does not, at the same time, get into discussions of sexual activity. Since some young people are menstruating and starting breast development as early as third grade, there should be material available for them and their peers to which to refer. Simplified line drawings illustrate chapters on sexual changes; health and hygiene; and reassurances about weight, size, and time frames in development. The message is ``You're normal'' while at the same time readers are urged to see a doctor when certain symptoms are present. Format is generally question-and-answer, often including the ages of the questioners, most of them 11 or 12. Narrower and younger in focus than The ``What's Happening to My Body?'' Book for Boys (Newmarket, 1984) by Lynda Madaras, more serious in tone than Am I Normal? (Avon, 1983) by Jeane Betancourt, and unlikely to offend any parent, no matter how conservative, omitting, as it does, any discussion of masturbation or sexual intercourse. Ann Scarpellino, Ramsey Public Library , N.J.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
As a health educator, I have used Growing and Changing as the classroom text for Puberty and Human Sexuality units for grades 6-8. The student generated questions reflect similar questions my own students have, making discussion easier. Excellent. - Ph.D. in Maine, USA

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Although this book could use a little flashier presentation, it does a fine job with describing the physical changes of growing up. The line-drawings of people at different stages are detailed and commendable.

Format: Paperback
I bought this for my older daughter the summer after 5th grade. It's written in a "Dear Abby" style, answering questions kids probably have. I like that it doesn't go into massive SEX detail, but it's more for changing bodies and thoughts, etc.
