I bought this for my god-daughter. It's full of good information for young girls and is presented in an easy to read format. She is only 7 right now and their is defiantly some information she is not ready for but there is lots to get her started on being responsible with the care of her body. ( )

body book for girls just got even better! With all-new illustrations and updated content for girls ages 8 and up, it features tips, how-tos, and facts from the experts. You'll find answers to questions about your changing body, from hair care to healthy eating, bad breath to bras, periods to pimples, and everything in between. ( )

This is an excellent book for girls age 9+ who are (or are about to) experience many changes in their growing bodies. Friendly and easy to read, it addresses personal care, menstruation, healthy eating and the like in a way that is both practical and comfortable.

This is part of a series from American Girl that gives sound advice on topics ranging from hair styles, to success in middle school, to relationships. They can be very helpful to preteens and can be helpful to parents when they want to chat with their daughters on these topics. ( )
