My mom bought this book 4 me before it was on nook. Great way to introduce younger girls without confusing of freaking them out. The only negative i have is that the pictures might be a bit too graphic 4 some girls, depending on maturity. I am 11 and liked this book because it didnt make me feel that awkward about puberty. I used 2 feel self consious because i was much more developed then most girls in my grade and even some of the older girls. This book helped me to get over that fear! I recommend this book 4 ages 8-12, even if they arent in puberty yet. It will definetly introduce them to the whole concept before they start developing. Thx sosososo much american girl! U know how to make girls feel good about themslves.

I recently have this book to my 8 nearly 9 year old daughter.  I thought it was perfect.   It introduced many things that in an appropriate way.   Unlike in my girl days, girls today are beginning their journey to womanhood as early as 8 years old.  It is imperative to open a conversation with them so they feel comfortable coming to YOU to get the right information!  This book is a safe way to start the conversation with them.

Absolutely! Even if you weren't just starting to even wear bras, I would still reccomend this for you, and even for any other girls that haven't even hit puberty yet. I read this book before I did,and reading it now especially helps you so that you are more comfortable and prepared for whats coming up. I think this is the perfect time. Again, I would highly reccomend it for any girl around the age of 9ish. This gets my full five stars(:

This book is a really helpful introduction to puberty, if you have never heard of puberty, this book will teach younger girls a few things to remember as they go on a roller coaster ride known as life. (I reccomend for girls 8-10)

I love this book i completly understood it and i no longer have any questions so now i know what is going to happen there is some pictures that might freak some little kids who are like 8 but i am ten and i did not care because it is just showing what it is or how to do it or just to see what it looks like. But overall i love this book!

This is an overall good book. I read it before it came on Nook? and it had a lot of my questions answered. Thank you American Girl for having this book! It helps with eating, puberty, and more you need to know for entering womanhood. Some of the pictures might seem inappropriate for the younger but they are true and they help. Thank you for reading this review! Ta ta, Rewiewer13

I gave this to my "granddaughter" on her 10th birthday. After rolling her eyes, she started reading it a few minutes later. This book will be a good prop for starting conversations about growing up. It will help her bring up any questions she might have. Totally appropriate for a 10 year old. I recommend it.

I love the level of detail and the appropriateness for my 9 year-old daughter. We've enjoyed sharing a special bond while discussing the changes she can expect in the next few years.

I read this book when I was starting to get discharge in my underwear and growing boobs and its really good it saved a whole lot of akwardness. When you first start getting boobs it gets sore I recomend getting a bra when you can see yoir boobs threw your shirt. Get a bra when your ready. Discharge is a sticky substance that is in your underwear it is white if it is yellow you should see a doctor. If you have any questions im here.

I purchased this book for my 10 year old daughter. We have been reading it together. It is a great introduction to all the changes she will be facing soon. I think the illustrations are simple and not too graphic. I recommend this book to all my mom friends. Is there something similar out there for boys?
