Just 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.

This would be perfect, to help me talk (explain) to my young daughter and answer any questions she may have. She has had a tough time the last couple of years and I hope to help her through everything.
