Re: Good book for puberty talk?
Theres a book called "deal with it. A whole new approach to your body, brain and life as a gurl"
It may be a little too much for her at her age. But its more of a reference book, and theres a lot on puberty and essential female must know things about infections, periods, emotions and such in relation to periods. What to do about certain bad situations (rape, etc) It explains boobs. It does include things about sex, and masterbation (and though I feel girls should learn about masterbation, at around the age of your daughter, thats totally up to you. I just wish someone would have told me it was O.K to do, gets rid of a lot of guilt and feeling like a freak in your teenage years, but that all depends on you and your ideas) It isn't a book you'd read front to back. It's in sections, and it tells you how to shave and things like that. A lot of it may be too much for her right now, but its definately something I'd keep in mind for later, and maybe even get now and use it as you can, so that she will have access to it when she gets older if she turns into one of those typical teens/tweens who doesn't feel comfortable talking to her parents about her body and whats normal and what isnt.
Theres also a book called "whats happening to my body? a book for girls" A book called "whats happening to me" it explains puberty for boys AND girls (which may help her understand when the guys start getting squeaky and such in a year or two) and "the period book" and "ready, set , grow!" which is the "whats happening to my body? book for girls" but for younger girls. Im not sure of the ages, so that one might be more appropriate.
Might be worth it to check a few out first and find the one you like the best. The first one might be a little too much, but might be a good idea to havei t around incase she asks questions in the next year or so that arent covered by books for younger girls.
