1.0 out of 5 stars I HATE this book!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on January 5, 2022
I hate this book so much I have literally ripped it up and put it in the bin. For the life of me, I can't understand the good reviews. The three photos I've included here will give you an indication of the problems of this book. I wanted a book which would help instil confidence in my girls, not instil new insecurities. The book often reads like a 1950 manual for teenagers on how to win a husband. "The most attractive girl in the room isn't the girl with the thinnest waist or the fairest face" - I don't want my girls thinking it matters whether they're the most attractive girl or thinking about the size of their waist or thinking about the fairness (!!!) of their face - three insecurities in one sentence. "A smile is an invitation that you wear on your face. It says "I'm a girl you want to know!"" - who wrote this exactly? A twenty year-old incel? And the advice to wear a hat and a smile to make up for your unfortunate freckles... No. This book is awful. Here are a couple which aren't: 'The Girls' Guide To Growing Up' by Anita Naik and 'Celebrate Your Body' by Sonya Renee Taylor (and, for older children, 'The Girls Guide To Growing Up Great' by Sophie Elkan ). These are sensitive, positive and celebratory books which I'd highly recommend. 'The Care and Keeping of You' can stay in the bin where it belongs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect book for younger girls
Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on May 3, 2019
I've just skim read this book before giving it to my 9yo (Year 5) daughter. It covers puberty (body changes, emotions, breast growth, bras) and periods as well as washing, keeping fit, eating healthily, positive body image etc. It DOES NOT cover sex or relationships, which was exactly what I was after at this stage. I'm very impressed and although it has the odd American term, it won't cause a problem in my daughter's understanding (e.g. candy instead of sweets).

The book has a mix of quite large text (ideal for less confident readers), lots of colourful pictures and then the rest is little bits of writing around the pictures. Lots of really good information in little bitesized chunks. I would say this book is ideal for primary school ages, maybe up to Y7 or Y8 depending on maturity level. There is a second book that is for older girls, covering sex and relationships, which based on this book, we'll definitely get.

I also bought the accompanying journal (see photo) and it is also brilliant. A great way for my daughter to engage with this book and I would recommend it too.
