Overview

For more than twenty years, the internationally bestselling team behind Where Did I Come From? has helped millions of parents and children talk about the facts of life in a straightforward yet lighthearted way that is respectful of young people’s natural intelligence.  Warmly and relatably illustrated throughout, What’s Happening to Me? creates a safe space where families can talk about the physical and emotional changes that happen during puberty and adolescence, answering the questions that kids ask most often.
 
Why is my chest getting bumpy? What's a wet dream?
What's a period?  Why is my voice acting so funny?
Why do I get pimples? What's an erection?
Why am I getting hairy? Why is mine not like his?
 
This book answers the big questions, and explains the big changes. One look at the illustrations will tell you that this is not a dull medical textbook but rather it presents the facts of puberty, and it presents them with honesty, sympathy and a sense of humor. If you’ve been wondering how to have this talk with your children, look no further for a trusted resource that will give you the tools you need to share this critical information sensitively and factually.
 
“You can't deny Mayle's talent for translating adult experience into child-level concepts.”
