Girl to Girl–A Giveaway

GirlToGirl_BookCoverJust in time for back to school, here’s a new book on navigating some of those tricky issues the middle grade years present to girls.

From Chronicle Books: Being a girl isn’t always easy, and growing up is far from a walk in the park. This time of transition is particularly confusing without a confidante to help. Meet Sarah O’Leary Burningham, a real-life big sister here to coach preteens through all of life’s big moments, from first bras to first periods. Filled with letters and testimonials from real girls—as well as confidence-boosting advice from girls who’ve been there and myth-busting sidebars—this fun, accessible book is a must-have for every girl navigating her way through the preteen years.

The up-to-the-minute advice calls on the expertise of leading doctors, nurses, and psychologists, as well as experts in makeup, hair and style, all combined with Sarah’s friendly big-sister real-world experience and charming full-color illustrations and how-to diagrams that make it easy for girls to learn things like shaving their legs and even flossing their teeth.
Topics include:
• Finding the right bra
• How to handle getting your period
• Picking out glasses and braces
• Caring for your skin
• Creating healthy habits
• Body odor and shaving
• Dealing with cramps
• Pierced ears and nail care
• Emotional well-being
• Getting enough sleep
