    WAY too advanced for a pre teen!!! (age 11)

    I was extremely disappointed when I received this book. It was not at all what I expected. It is WAY too graphic for a child just beginning puberty. I was looking for the 'basics' and I do not consider male genitals to be basic for female puberty. Explaining male erections, ejaculations, and sperm just does not apply here. I am an OB/GYN sonographer. I feel pretty 'experienced' when it comes to explaining the female reproductive system to my daughter. But she loves to read and comprehends things a little better if she reads it, so I thought this would be a nice supplement for our conversations. This may be more appropriate for the older teen, but far too much exposure for a pre teen. I will be sending this book back first thing tomorrow!!

    BEWARE_ VERY GRAPHIC FOR YOUNG GIRLS

    I was looking for an easy book for my 10 and 11 year old girls in my Girl Scout Troop. We are learning about early body changes. I BLUSHED when reading this book. I can just say, its for the very advanced readers and maturity levels. THEY are ALL being returned tomorrow!!

    A reviewer

    This is a great direct and honest approach to the education of pre-teens. In the world today we all hope and pray our kids don't need to know this stuff too soon but the fact is if they don't learn the truth, at home, in a clear way they WILL certainly learn it somewhere else. This was a great addition to our conversations as my little one ventured into womanhood and through middle school into high school. The key in was making sure to use this as an companion to open dialogue so that our daughter could explore and learn at her own pace. For those more reserved parents- this may not be the ideal book- it has drawings of genitals (male and female) and clearly explains sex, contraception, etc in simple to the point terms. For us it was a perfect solution for a bookworm child who was becoming a woman. Thanks!

    A little over the top but OK

    Even though it was very describing, i believe that its good to know ahead of time so it wont be a big surprise in the end. Me, as an 11 year old, believe this book was good.

    A lifetime of useful information

    I am a 34 year old woman who got this book from her mother around 11-12 years old. The information in this book was and still is invaluable. It's a tricky subject for any parent to discuss with their child and this book provides a groundwork of good, clear, clinical information. I still reflect on it to this day. If all kids had such a clear understanding of their bodies and such a demystifying look at the opposite gender, it could help clear up many misconceptions. I know adults, both male and female, who still do not understand female reproduction, etc. There will always be things kids don't discuss with their parents. This book answers many of the questions I, as a pre-teen, was too shy to ask.

    Great!

    This is a great book but parents please note that there are illustrations of body parts in this book so you might want to take a look through it first to decide if you think its suitible for your child or not before they read it. Very good book for 10 year olds and up! (As i just said it still could be good for younger children)

    Good source of info with excellent illustrations. I did not share with my daughter page by page (TMI). However, it helped me through some technical aspects of what's happening to her body.

    Advice on girls for boys

    Hi im a girl. To get a girl you need to show her you care. You need to be nice to her. If you have a friend ask her to o out with you or to know if she likes you thats a big mistake. Girls like it when boys come up and ask themselves. Play hard to get but not to hard. Dress better. Dont eat like a slob. And if you see that someones being mean to her then stand up for her and defend her. They like it wjen the man is tough yet sensitive. And not afraid to watch a chick flick. Hope this info helps with the love life you got anymore questions then just put your headline as actressinheart girl help

    Having your period for sure no fun. If a period is really bad, for me, I gotta change mine every half hour.

    Plz read this

    To all who have made coments on this book, if you are 12 and under, do NOT read this book. I find this book amazing and extremely helpful. The pictures are only to help u understand certain things. Gals, if you are having a hard time with puberty and have questions, this book will tell you all there is to know. If you still need to talk to someone still, talk to ur aunt, grandmother, godmother, or ur friends/ best friends mom. This is only if you fo not have a mom or you are extremely uncomfortable talking to ur own mom. Hope this helps!
