From the American Girl line of books I reccomend The Care and Keeping of You as a basic "what's happening w/my body"sort of book. I think that there is an "Our Body, Our Selves" book (forget the exact title) that may fit the bill as well.
Good for you that you are being so on top of this!
I also liked the American Girl "Care and Keeping of You" book. Dd's not really into the dolls all that much (she's 11 1/2) but she loves the books, and after flipping through that book I thought it was a good one for her. She, too, is very self sufficient and she has NO qualms about asking me questions. I mean, none. My mother was very hands off with me and I got easily embarrassed, so I'm doing my best to answer all her questions openly and honestly without making *her* feel embarrassed.
Incidentally I've found conversations in the car to be easier than a sit down/face to face conversation.
