Does anyone know if this is a good book for preteens? i am considering ordering it from amazon.
I think American Girls' The Care and Keeping of You is a GREAT first book! I buy it for each of my daughters when they turn 8. I thought we could pass it along (my girls are four and almost three years apart) but each girl wanted to keep her copy.
Just another thumbs up for Care and Keeping of You. I was completely comfortable with it, and my daughter and her friends all loved it.
We love that book at our house.
What I particularly love about it is that it keeps the focus on the girl and what is going on with her and steers clear of the trap of focusing on dating and "getting the guy" like a lot of other books like this fall into. Also the drawings are of a really wide range of body sizes/types, girls that age need to see that and sadly dont get that sort of positive imagery very often.
and yes, I blog.
