The Period Book

Great Book, my daughter is 8 and cant read it fast enough. In our family open communication is a must, and this book opens the door for any questions that a girl may have.

Why didn't they have this when I was a girl?

This seems like a great, informative book, especially good for the girl who doesn't want to discuss ANY of it with you, even though you've offered and made yourself available! :P I read it all, cover to cover, before bestowing it on a 12-year-old who would rather eat glass than discuss anything personal with anybody, and she was immediately engrossed!

As a mom of 5 daughters...

I wanted something that would help me to explain the real situaion without going into sexuality. (I beleive there is one mention of why we have a period is that if you haven't had intercourse and gotten pregnat then the lining of the uterus will shed). At first I was a little put off by the drawing (cartoony) about tampon use... but then realized, you know, that is what they really are thinking and feeling and wondering about. I know I was way back when. I read the whole thing first then gave it to my oldest daughter at about 10/11 yrs old. She read it and we had some very open communication about things. It was a great way to open the door for conversation. I have loaned it to several other friends with daughters approaching that age. It was very helpful with information about breastbuds, and how it's 'normal' to not develop at the exact same rate and size... (I wouldn't have thought about telling her that!), and gave good practicle information about what to do if you start in public and having nothing with you, or various other situaions. The author and her neice did an excellent job of giving good practical information that girls really do need to know, and are probably wondering about. Make sure your daughter is at the stage where she can handle the information... I am not sure when to give it to my next (less mature) almost 10 yr old daughter... one day she'll need and be ready for the same information. A very good book! We also bought 'Period. A girls guide' it was a little more basic, but also a good first book.

Perfect book when giving "THE TALK"

When it comes down to giving the talk about growing up and lifes changes make sure you have this book in hand. I took this book to work to show the women at the office and now all of them are going out to buy it for thier girls.

Excellent, Wonderful However you want to put it.

Every young girl who is worried or just curious about her period should have this book. It explains what happens to your body during puberty, the what ifs and freaquently asked questions from many girls.Parents- if you are looking for a book on this type of thing, this is the book you are looking for. "It's A Girl Thing" by Mavis Jukes is great, too.
