Abstract:

To help girls realize that they are not alone in their concerns as they go through their transformation to womanhood, they need information, and this is the best book to give and share with them. This bestselling classic, written by an experienced educator with her daughter in a reassuring and down-to-earth style, has sold over 400,000 copies and been translated into 12 languages. The introduction is for the parent, the book for the young girl. Readers will be comforted with honest, sensitive, non-judgmental straight talk on the body's changing size and shape, breasts, the reproductive organs, the menstrual cycle, body hair, puberty in boys, and much more. This expanded Third Edition addresses questions raised in the thousands of letters sent by kids to the authors over the years. Material new in this edition includes advice on "female athletic syndrome," on how to handle "unwanted attention" because of early development; information on body types, eating right, exercising, anorexia and bulimia; expanded sections on when a girl will begin puberty, more detail about the stages of development, and crucial information on AIDS, STDs, and birth control appropriate for this age. Filled with illustrations, anecdotes, and stories of real-life experiences, The What's Happening to My Body? Book for Girls is a comprehensive puberty education and health book for all young girls from ages 8 to 15.
