Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A Girl's Guide by JoAnn Loulan and Bonnie Worthen, first published in 1979 and newly revised and updated, thoroughly covers questions about puberty and menstruation. The authors emphasize the positive (e.g., "Being comfortable with your own body is important") and use diagrams to familiarize readers with the inner workings of their bodies, including what happens during menstruation. A question-and-answer format in the last three chapters allows girls to locate easily the information they seek. A parent's guide bound into the back suggests how to begin a conversation about puberty, what to cover, etc. A thoughtful approach for young women facing changes. ; Jan. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

    This is THE book to give your daughter!

    This is absolutely the best book for your daughter. My sister gave it to me after she used it as a tool to help her daughter and I passed it to my daughter and then to my neice. It covers all those difficult questions we couldn't ask our moms. A must have for moms of daughters.
