Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 5-8 - These accessible guides are nearly identical in the treatment of several subjects, such as healthy eating, exercise, and skin care, and the chapters on feelings, relationships, and sex. The information is presented in a straightforward manner without judgment, which may be comforting to preteens who are finding the road to adulthood a somewhat frightening path. The focus is on physical changes and some of the accompanying feelings. Sexual activity is mentioned, but readers are encouraged to wait until they are older, and contraception is not discussed in detail. Good, sound primers.-Elaine Baran Black, Gwinnett County Public Library, Lawrenceville, GA
