Overview

An honest and reassuring guide to puberty for elementary school children

Puberty can be an exciting-and confusing-time for children. In the follow-up to her bestselling Amazing You!, Dr. Gail Saltz navigates the curiosity and confusion that youngsters feel as they start to notice the changes their bodies undergo. She also talks about reproduction and emerging sexuality all with her renowned brand of warmth and candor. This refreshingly accessible picture book also includes an author's note to parents.

My pediatrician told me my 9-year-old was starting to develop enough where I should talk to her about her period. I bought this book, wrote a little note to her on the first page about how she should always proud to be her, and so on, and then we sat together - just the two of us - on the bed and read it together. The illustrations were adorable and made what could be disgusting, very understandable for children. She woke up this morning and wanted to read it again. It's very informative but fun as well. The captions on some of the illustrations are hysterical and really make it seem like an adventure, believe it or not. I would absolutely recommend this book as one you read together while you explain 'the miracles of life.'

For a long time, I searched for a book on human sexuality for my children who are 8 and 10 years old. A lot of the books I found were written to parents. The few that I found for kids were incomplete. But in my opinion, this one was the best by far. It includes a wealth of information in a tone that my children could easily understand, and it led to wonderful conversations between us about sexuality.

I highly recommend this book for use in talking to your kids about sex. It was easy for my 8 year old to understand but, unlike other books I have seen, did not offer too much information. I thought it was a great introduction to a difficult topic.
