Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristi Bernard
Boys often want to know what happens to their bodies as they grow. This quick reference guide provides answers in a straight talk factual manner. The table of contents list details for each chapter covered along with an age time line for quick reference. Each stage of puberty is covered with pictures and terminology so readers can understand the specifics of their changing body without feeling overwhelmed. There are plenty of recommendations for products and foods to help readers keep themselves healthy and groomed. At the end of each chapter readers can take a quick quiz to test their knowledge. Answers to quizzes are there too so the reader can check their accuracy. Readers are encouraged to ask parents and their family doctor questions. Bullying has been a touchy subject in the past; it is covered in a strategic manner to help the reader learn how to handle a bully. Mar and Norwich do a fabulous job of covering this topic from the sensitive to the general. All questions are answered about a boy's changing body and what he can expect at a certain age. Parents and teachers can use this as a guide to introduce boys to their bodies in a manner that won't embarrass or hinder them from asking questions. Reviewer: Kristi Bernard
