Is This Normal?: Girls Questions, Answered by the Editors of the Care & Keeping of You (American Girl Library) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

More than two million girls have read The Care & Keeping of You, and many of them wrote to American Girl with concerns about their own changing bodies. In this follow-up book, Is This Normal?, girls can read some of those letters, along with responses that may answer some of their own questions. The book isn't meant to be a substitute for conversations with parents. In fact, the last chapter of the book gives girls tips for talking with parents about puberty and other touchy topics. Armed with the information in this book, girls will feel ready for and excited about the changes ahead.

Review:

"The editors of The Care & Keeping of You respond to girls' letters with topics ranging from hair care to bodily changes to embarrassing situations. The lighthearted tone (the letters are accompanied by illustrations of cartoon girls) treats common dilemmas with rationality and ease: 'Remind yourself... that pads and periods are a normal part of life,' reads one response to a mortified girl's letter. While girls with more complex emotional, psychological or health problems may not find the answers they need (concerning eating disorders, the editors recommend getting help from a parent or professional), the assurance of being 'normal' should put many worried minds to rest. Ages 8 — up. (Mar.) " Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
