Ob-gyn Melisa Holmes, M.D. and pediatrician Trish Hutchison, M.D. (both of whom are also mothers) present Girlology's There's Something New About You: A Girl's Guide to Growing Up, the third book in the Girlology series. There's Something New About You is especially for young girls age 8-12, facing the bodily changes of puberty - not just the development of breasts and the onset of menstruation, but also learning how to manage new and sometimes uncomfortably strong emotions, getting proper nutrition, acne do's and don'ts, and much more. A handful of color illustrations enhance this down-to-earth, user-friendly guide that doesn't talk down to young girls confronting a challenging phase in their lives. Highly recommended, both as a gift to any young girl and for school and public library collections.
