Ready, Set, Grow! Young girls before the onset of puberty have a curiosity about their soon-to-be changing bodies that needs addressing in a simpler way than for their older sisters. In Madaras's proven, trust-worthy, friendly voice and style, this entirely new book now brings them the same kind of thoughtful, down-toearth information-but at a reading and comprehension level that's just right for them. Responding throughout to reallife questions and observations from younger girls, Madaras explores the changes that are happening, or about to happen, to them, including: the development of breasts, body hair, and body fat; the changes in their reproductive organs, both inside and out; their first period and all the complex feelings surrounding it; the unwelcome appearance of acne and new body odors; and, perhaps most important, how to respect and celebrate their unique bodies, even when the outside world is not always so accepting. Lively cartoon drawings throughout make the book not only helpful, but fun to read, too.« Less
a "what's happening to my body?" book for younger girls
What's happening to me? puberty is about change
Buds, boobs, and bras: your growing breasts
Hair, there and everywhere: all about body hair
You grow, girl! the height spurt
Bigger is beautiful: the weight spurt
B.O. and zits: a survival guide
What's up down there? a look at your private parts
The inside story: changes you can't see
That time of the month: all about getting your period
Yours alone: respecting and protecting your body
