Does anyone know if this is a good book for preteens? i am considering ordering it from amazon.
Is this the American Girl book? If so, we've found it to be decent as a sort of entry level book for puberty topics.
i think it is. thanks for your input. the intro book is what i am looking for!
My daughter has this book and I think that it has been fairly informative for her.
are there any other books out there that anyone would recommend?
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.
There's also It's Perfectly Normal (Harris). Along the same lines, slightly more detailed.
I thought it was the perfect book for my nine year-twelve year old. I recommended that one often.
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.
That's the one I got for my dd. It was definitely a good starter book for her.
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.
