Grade 3-6–Created as a companion to The Care & Keeping of YOU (American Girl, 2009), this set of questions and answers has been adapted from American Girl magazine's column. Topics range from body hair and shaving to menstruation and breast development to talking to a trusted adult about puberty. While the advice covers familiar ground, the tone of the book is comforting. After reading what the experts say, there is commentary from real girls as well. The colorful cartoon illustrations mirror the style of the text.–Elaine Baran Black, Georgia Public Library Service, Atlanta
