I loved everything about this book! It was great!!!!! i am 12 going on 13 and a late bloomer. This book informed me about all of the embarrassing stuff that no pre teen girl wants to ask. i got this book when i was 12 years old along with my FIRST BRA! this book showed me how to wear it and everything. it also gets you prepared for not getting embarrassed when you have 'THE TALK!' in seventh grade! every girl should read this including teachers and other adults!

this book was amazing. i am 12 going on 13 and i first read this book in 4th grade and didn't really understnd it. Then, for my 12th birthday, my mom got it for me, along with my FIRST BRA!, and i got really embarrased. then after reading it with her and understanding that every preteen and teen goes through the same thing, i learned to understand it better. I felt more comfterable talking about this stuff when i was in 5th grade and having 'the talk' with my teacher and my peers. This book is good for every girl wanting to know about her body!

This was a REALLY good book. It was kinda weird and embarassing when my mom told me to get it, but it explained a lot. The drawings helped

Well it isnt all bad to srat ur period it doesnt hurt but if u r 11 i reccomend using pads and it is totally normal to ask ur mom it happened to her too and dont get freaked out about getting pithair just tell ur mom u get this stuff called discharge in ur under wear it doesnt hurt u can be sleeping and have ut come out. And bras dont hurt either just they are tricky to get on if it has a clasp but u dont feel it at all.

You shouldnt be embarrased about your peroid. Its just something us girls go through in life! Dont be afraid to ask your mom abou this sort of stuff. Trust me when i say you can always trust her because she has been in the same place as you! Also, dont wait to ask because you want to be prepared for when that special gift from mother nature visits you for the first time! You have to know what to do, so just ask your mom... she would gladly explain! I remember my mom explaining it to me and i had nothing to worry about! She got me stocked up and prepared - which is very critical to survive life as a woman! Also, your first period might seem bad, but trust me it gets a lot worse!!!!!! Good luck!

This book was a wonderful help to my young daughter. It helped her understand some of the things I couldn't explain to her.

After seeing this book, I gave it to my friends daughter (12 1/2) to read and she couldn't put it down! It answered a lot of questions for her and then they had the chance to talk about it together. Great mother/daughter moment. Buy the book!

I received this book as a gift and it answered alot of questions I had about my body. I know the right way to shave now and even though I haven't had a period I know all about it.

You develop when you develop! That could be nine or ten, or fifteen for someone. And personally wearing bras isnt all that great and periods are a pain. Enjoy being a pre-puberty girl !
