The best part of the book, though, isn't just the technical information, but the overall tone of the book--that a woman's period IS something exciting and new, and something to be proud of. And I am so happy I read the book and took that attitude with me. When the day it finally came (my first period) I was scared and thrilled all at the same time--I knew just what to do about it, because the book had told me, and I was so pleased that it meant that I was growing up.Read more ›
As everyone has mentioned the text and drawings are very clear. I was afraid I would have to sketch things out for her - but not now since it's all here. The more teenage topic is quickly referenced on two separate pages in this book - but if she asks I will just say it's for a later discussion. I will be using this book along with Nancy Rue's "The Body Book, It's a God Thing". Both of these books are very well suited for a 9 yr old.
I passed on "The Care and Keeping of You" and "Ready, Set, Grow" for adding in too much information that young girls don't need at ages 9 or 10.
This book answers all the normal questions about menstruation, but it also gives great examples about how different every woman's body is and enforces the idea that being different is normal.
I highly suggest getting this book for young women to learn about menstruation.
