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 was a little disappointed as the book was very thin, I was expecting more for the price I paid.
The children read it and we're comfortable with reading the information out loud to me. My 9 year old understood everything. She kept bringing the book out and reading it. I think she was searching for more information as she has asked me if I could get more books about puberty from the library.

      This is a great book for mums to help teach a young child who is about to, or is already experiencing changes in their body, it is very easy for the child to use as a reference too.

            Great book to purchase for girls. Gives them the correct information on all difficult topics. Especially good to read before doing "sex education " classes at school.

                Such a great first book for girls to understand what changes their body will go through without going into the more grown up concepts.

                  Pitched at the right age. Two daughters emerging into teenage years and this and its companion "More secret girls business" have proved to be extremely helpful. It's there on our shelf for our girls to look at when they have a question. Part of our strategy so not a total solution, but an important element.

                    This book certainly answered the questions that my daughter was starting to ask. We read it together and we discussed things along the way, and now she is ready and prepared for when things start happening for her. Highly recommend.
