        Comments about Secret Girls' Business:

        I am a therapist and have found this an invaluable resource for girls starting puberty. I give them a copy of their own to read in their own time and home and we will go through sections of the book in subsequent sessions and it really helps initiate conversations around puberty. All the young girls I have used this with have LOVE it and the pictures and simple wording really helps ease them into understanding the changes the occur with a positive attitude. My only criticism is the title - this shouldn't be "secret" girls business, everyone should know about the changes that occur in both boys and girls.

                I purchased this book to help inform my 8 year old twin girls about puberty. It really is a great reference to use as it is age appropriate, well written and easy for them to read and understand. Very helpful

                  Really useful in helping to introduce my 9 year old to some of the 'facts of life' clearly and concisely. She is quite capable of reading it herself, but it was great to read it with her and gave an opportunity to talk about some of the information in the right context.
