Format: Paperback
I first came across this book when I was nine. Since then I have read it a countless number of times. I am sixteen now, and I still look back on it from time to time. It has all the information a young teen would ever need; all in a chunky little manual. The author writes with a very compassionate tone...This is a gem of a book!

Format: Paperback
This book was recommended to me for my 11- and 13-year-old kids by a physician assistant. She had found it helpful for her teenagers. So I got a copy from the library to review before I let my kids see it. I thought it was excellent: a wide range of topics of interest to adolescents are addressed in an honest, sensitive style. My kids liked the book too, so we decided to buy a copy for reference--for those questions that will come up in the next few years that they don't quite feel comfortable asking Mom or Dad. I'd prefer they get their answers from this book, rather than from a boyfriend or girlfriend.

A must for every young person to read! The author not only discusses topics that are of great concern to kids, but offers many choices on how to handle difficult situations. My three kids have read this book and loved it. And when they don't have it, I'm reading it! I recommend that parents read it as well.

Format: Paperback
Now in a newly revised and expanded edition, Growing Up Feeling Good: The Life Handbook For Kids by educator and human sexuality expert Ellen Rosenberg is a comprehensive resource written specifically for preteen and teenaged young adults. Individual chapters address such problematic issues affecting preteen and adolescent sexual development as peer pressure, adjusting to the biological changes of puberty, the thorny issues of sex, dealing with separation, divorce, step-families, and a great deal more. Growing Up Feeling Good is a very solid and highly recommended guide for both parents and children.

I am a physician and love to speak to pre- and adolescent teens about puberty and all the changes that occur with their bodies and minds at that time. I love this book and refer to it often-my clinic is now purchasing copies for the local school system-to be read, re-read, used and shared-from the elementary kids to the high school students to the teachers and counselors!
