My mom bought this book 4 me before it was on nook. Great way to introduce younger girls without confusing of freaking them out. The only negative i have is that the pictures might be a bit too graphic 4 some girls, depending on maturity. I am 11 and liked this book because it didnt make me feel that awkward about puberty. I used 2 feel self consious because i was much more developed then most girls in my grade and even some of the older girls. This book helped me to get over that fear! I recommend this book 4 ages 8-12, even if they arent in puberty yet. It will definetly introduce them to the whole concept before they start developing. Thx sosososo much american girl! U know how to make girls feel good about themslves.

    I recently have this book to my 8 nearly 9 year old daughter.  I thought it was perfect.   It introduced many things that in an appropriate way.  
    Unlike in my girl days, girls today are beginning their journey to womanhood as early as 8 years old.  It is imperative to open a conversation with them so they feel comfortable coming to YOU to get the right information!  This book is a safe way to start the conversation with them.

    Appropriate 10th Birthday Gift

    I gave this to my "granddaughter" on her 10th birthday. After rolling her eyes, she started reading it a few minutes later. This book will be a good prop for starting conversations about growing up. It will help her bring up any questions she might have. Totally appropriate for a 10 year old. I recommend it.

    Book

    This is an overall good book. I read it before it came on Nook? and it had a lot of my questions answered. Thank you American Girl for having this book! It helps with eating, puberty, and more you need to know for entering womanhood. Some of the pictures might seem inappropriate for the younger but they are true and they help. Thank you for reading this review!
