Book Overview

Hi. My name is Lynda Madaras. I write books about growing up. I get tons of letters from boys. They tell me just what they're thinking. They ask questions. Many of the things they say are here in this book. Many of their questions are here, too, along with my answers. So boys like you helped to write this book. In her uniquely warm and funny style, Lynda Madaras wrote this entirely new book especially for younger boys to give them everything they...

perfect intro !

this is a great book to introduce & inform little boys about changes which happen to their bodies during puberty and great fun for mom or dad to read with them !It also has some good info on how to properly take care of their bodies. The author and the boys adding thoughts in the book at different stages really make it quite humorous at times and thus easy to talk more about things in as much detail as you want as you go along. My son is 9 & I would highly recommend this book to anyone his age and older !!!

It's not too early to tell the boy what will happen...

I bought this for my 10.5 year old grandson and his parents read this book first--they even learned something. My grandson then read it and although a bit shy about telling me about it, he said it helped him understand a lot about his body and what to expect. He seemed happy to have the information and I was worried it was too early--but it was perfect timing. I plan to give a copy to my next grandson who turns ten next year.

Good timing

I bought this for my 10 year old son but as a mother who had only sisters I read it, too. This book was very readable, good pictures with just the right amount of information for a pre-teen. My son read the whole book in one sitting. The timing was right for him. He then asked a few questions and it provoked some thoughtful discussion. I would highly recommend this book.

On your mark get set grow was a hit.

On Your Mark, Get Set, Grow!: A "What's Happening to My Body?" Book for Younger Boys (What's Happening to My Body?)I purchased this for my godson. He is starting to wonder what will happen to his body next and his mother was concerned because he was trying to look it up on the internet. She is a single parent since his father passed away and she didn't know how to help him learn about his own body. She is very pleased with this book because it provided plenty of information without being too graphic like the books meant for older boys. They have many healthy discussions based around what he has read and they read together also. He is turning 10 this month and is well on his way to understanding his "stage" of development and what is to come.
