Review: I purchased this book for my (just) 9 year old daughter who is about to join an older class of year 6 pupils and I wanted her to be a bit more informed about her body before she is with the older children. It is perfect as a first introduction to growing up as the book is clearly laid out with diagrams, frank questions and answers, and just the right amount of information. I read the book myself first (just in case of questions later) and when she read it she was happy to ask me a few questions about it without embarrassment, Now her friends know the contraception I use! The book would best be suited to the top end of primary school age, we might need Dr Christian's follow-up book in a few years. Think this book will work equally well for my son in a few years time too. Wish I has been able to read both sides of growing up when I was younger, but then you had books just for girls.

Review: Bought on recommendation from other parents but to be honest I expected more anatomy and physiology content. It has a lot about emotions and body changes such as hygiene/spots etc but I didn’t think it was that good at explaining about periods or the physical changes and there was a lot of random cartoon Dr Christians in it for no reason. (I am a medical person however so maybe just expect more than non medical parents).
