Summary: A little over whelmed with the content
Comment: I bought this for my just 10 year old daugther who is very curious about growing up and becoming a woman. I think it would be a great resource for more mature girls but I found some of it unappropriate for my daughter. There is a LOT of detail in the book . . . with anything from how to shave your legs and cleanliness to how to use pads and tampons. Some of the diagrams are graphic. I would not call myself a conservative person. I will hold on to this until my daughter is mature enough for all of its content. I would like to see a version of this book that leaves out some of the more advanced topics that a daughter should learn from her mother.

Summary: a book to make preteen years easier
Comment: This book is for my 8 1/2 year old daughter who is beginning to ask questions about growing up and why modesty is important and such. Physically she's still too young for the book, but mentally she's got questions and this was an easy way to guide our conversations.

I am glad it covers the physical self-care that comes with puberty without getting into the sex talk. I felt comfortable letting her take it to read by herself and then we looked at some of the pages together to answer questions. She is having fun being more "grown up" by washing her face each day, and brushing her teeth more carefully.

Next up: Care & Keeping of Your Emotions.

Summary: Wonderful Pre-teen Book
Comment: I bought this book for my 9 year old daughter after we had "The Talk". She reads it every night and loves it. We sometimes read it together, but if not, I always ask her if she has questions. It is perfect for her age. I'm really glad I bought this book for her. It's just one more way we share time on such very important subjects. She thanked me today for helping her to become a lady. I felt so proud.
