Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great resource for younger girls This book is age appropriate for 8 year olds, it gives enough information to answer questions but not enough to frighten. Highly recommend, great to read together or for girls to explore independently, my daughter really likes this book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Young Girls! I bought this book for my younger sister when she was in fourth grade and had her first classes about puberty to supplement the stuff taught in classroom. She learned a lot more from this book than she did from the health nurse! She loves how it explains things in a way that young kids can understand

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Book!!! I bought this book for my 9 year old daughter and read it together with her. It helped introduce many necessary topics in a very informative, matter of fact manner. It really helped my daughter understand what is happening and will happen to her body in a very clear age appropriate way. It opened up discussion between us and helped me find the right words. I recommend this to any parent raising a young girl... I wish there was a book for boys as comprehensive as this one!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely Recommend! I purchased this book for my daughter as a Christmas present, she and I have been reading it together and not only does it house a great amount of relevant information, it has sparked her to ask more questions, and speak to topics that she might not have been comfortable enough to talk about before. It is definitely well written for young girls (my daughter is almost 9, and she has an easy time reading and understanding most topics), and I look forward to eventually getting the next book as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good book for young girls My twin nieces age 10 just started this book and loved it. They would read a bit, put it away, read some more, put it away, read some more. Very informative for them. I'll give them volume 2 in the next year or so after they digest this information. A really great resource for young girls.
