Be forewarned! "She wrote about the changes to her body during puberty, and sometimes she thought about sex." This is direct quote from this book! Why is that second phrase even included in a book recommended for 8 year-olds? As a parent and a public school teacher, I am shocked that the editors at National Geographic let this one pass. I will not be able to keep it in my fifth grade library with that content!
