When she starts to "develop": books to read
Along with changes in scent come changes to the body. Back when I was a young girl, there were pamphlets describing your ovaries, eggs traveling down tubes, then a monthly shedding of the endometrium. It was all very clinical in all of its two pages.
Now that my girl is starting to go through the changes, I want to collect reading material that answers some of her questions. I also want reading material for myself, from the mama perspective.
Years ago, we received a copy of Cycle Savvy, "The Smart Teen's Guide to the Mysteries of her Body". It really is geared toward the 13-18 year old set. I'm looking for books more geared toward the 8-13 year old set, to prepare girls for these changes.
Our doc recently recommended a series that talked about the changes, both emotional and physical. But should couldn't remember the title! Suggestions, please - both for girls in the pre- or early-pubescent range & their mamas....
