THE BEST book about body changes for pre-teen girls. It talks about body changes without going into the topics of sex and dating, as so many of the books do. I recommended it to all of my friends with pre-teens and they all agreed. I can't say enough good things about it except I wish thay had written an equivalent one for boys.

I had a similar book to this when I was a child. I ordered this to give to my child, and having read through it I know it will be very helpful in teaching her about the changes taking place within her body.
