Has all the answers kids do not wish to hear from their embarrassing parents! Pop on the bench or bookshelf and each child reads in their own time and eventually come to you with any further questions. Complete information without ambiguity, leaving little left for the kids at school to fill in the spaces with incorrect info. Great for boys to understand what happens with girls and for girls to understand what's going on. Total recommendation for parents with either gender and various ages. Good for kids who don't want to hear all the gross bits from Mum or Dad, just confirmation of information in the book.

A great book for my daughter aged 11 who needed to hear from a source other than Mum that all was normal and there was indeed a sense of humour which could be attached to an otherwise potentially stressful time for young girls. A handy reference and reinforcement and tonnes of help with some of the tougher questions for Mums and Dads too. Great to have on hand from aged 10 up..because suddenly that day arrives and we all need to be prepared.

A well written book with all the facts about puberty and everything that goes with it. Essential for those girls who don't want to talk about 'IT'.
