Growing up for Girls -

Thanks so much for the reviews. I had seen this book in the library and thought that it was great and one that should be bought for my 9-year-old for reference. I too was shocked that it covered a lot of things that she was not ready for yet so have covered all bases and brought this for when she is a bit bigger and What's Happening To Me for the information that she needs now! You do feel like you are grappling in the dark at this point so great to have advice! Cheers!

A good book but... -

I bought this for my just turned 10-year-old alongside Usborne's What's Happening to Me? As with earlier reviewers, we do not feel our 10-year-old needs to know about STIs and contraception just yet. We found the other book was more age appropriate for her. However this is a very good book for an older child; we will be giving this to our daughter in a year or so.

Usborne is great for education -

I bought this for my 9-year-old, as she is clearly growing up, and with so much to cover, I wanted the two of us to have a sort of checklist to ensure that her development is as supported as possible. The book covers topics like why sleep and a healthy diet are important as well as dealing with emotions and body changes. It is very clear on reproduction and physical relationships, so many parents might not want to give it to a pre-teen. But I have been happy to get to talk about the issues while my daughter is still comfortable asking honest questions - without feeling shy or embarrassed. It is like looking over the path the roller coaster will take rather than trying to figure out where you are once you are on it. Growing Up for Girls is able to help her see where she is going, so she will be better prepared when she gets there.

Growing Up for Girls -

I disagree with the first two reviews... I bought this book for my 9-year-old daughter. I wanted her to have some knowledge, before starting Sex Education in Yr 5!! She has read most of it now and has asked questions along the way. Yes, it is hard as a parent to answer many of those questions. Yet I would rather answer them, than allow my daughter to have absolutely no understanding of the changes that will happen to her. Plus if your daughter is sensible and mature enough, then surely she is ready to learn about her development.

Read it first -

I agree with the first reviewer. I bought this for my nine-year-old daughter and thought I should read it first. It contains far too much information that should be aimed at age 14 plus. The book should be re-labelled to reflect this. Not appropriate for under 14s.
