My Body's Changing: A Girl's Guide to Growing Up Summary

My Body's Changing: A Girl's Guide to Growing Up by Anita Ganeri

A simple and reassuring introduction to periods and body changes for young girls aged 7 and up.

This easy-to-understand, straightforward book gives clear advice for young readers who want to understand more about the changes in their body that happen during puberty.

The clear, friendly approach explains what puberty is, what changes might happen from getting hairy to growing breasts, as well as explaining all about periods. The book answers the many questions girls might have about periods, such as: how long do periods last; what are period pains; how do I use sanitary products?

The book focuses purely on the changes happening to a girl's body during puberty with no mention of sex, which some younger children aren't ready to learn about.

There is sensible advice about heathy eating, exercise and keeping clean, as well as how to tackle any emotional ups and downs and tips for boosting self-esteem.

Questions and answers throughout will help dispel any myths and give gentle advice.

Suitable for all ages, and in particular for any young girls experiencing early puberty.

About Anita Ganeri

Anita Ganeri is an award-winning author of children's information books. She has been a writer for 20 years, after working in-house for Usborne Publishing and Walker Books. She specialises in the natural world, religion and mythology but is always looking for new challenges. Among her many titles are the best-selling 'Horrible Geography' series for Scholastic Children's Books which won the Blue Peter Book Award for the Best Book with Facts in 2009 and the Tivy Education Medal from the Royal Scottish Geographical Society for an outstanding contribution to geographical education. Anita lives in northern England with her husband, children, dogs and cat. She enjoys reading, walking the Moors, playing tennis and dreaming of winning Wimbledon. During her early childhood, Teresa lived in a small town north of Mexico, playing in the river, walking with the cows, and feeding the neighbor's pigs. When her parents decided to move to the city (Monterrey) to give Teresa and her brothers a better education, she spent these later years missing that quiet life. Teresa was a very shy girl at school, and drawing helped her connect with other kids. There was no career for Illustration in Mexico in those days, so Teresa decided to study Graphic Design and spent many afternoons reading books on art in the university's library. She also took many painting courses and even went to Italy for a short course at the Leonardo Da Vinci School (Florence). Eventually, she started working as a children's book illustrator and been doing that ever since. Now Teresa lives in Puerto Vallarta, drawing for kids (as she did in her school). Every other day, she gets to see the cows outside her house. And that makes her happy.
