The Care and Keeping of You Volume 2 by Cara Natterson
American Girl has created a series of books called The Care & Keeping of You. Volume 2 is The Body Book for Older Girls I purchased for my daughter. It helped her understand what she was going through during puberty and answered her questions regarding taking care of her body to cope with changes. As a pre-teen, having conversations about bodily changes with your parents can be difficult, so knowing that she wasn’t the only one going through changes with her body enabled her to discuss puberty openly without embarrassment.

When Girls Grow Up by Niyatii N. Shah
Recently, I have come across this book named When girls grow up. This book totally covers everything and if kids come across this book, then they would learn a lot about puberty and what adolescence means, it covers how to manage things in the future. This book isn’t meant for only girls and anyone could read this.

What’s Going on Down There by Karen Gravelle
The book “What’s Going on Down There?” covers all the bases and more, addressing everything from facts to feelings, with colorful illustrations, easy-to-understand language, and open dialogue. It does a great job explaining to kids how their body works and what changes to expect as they grow up. It also talks about body image, self-esteem, and healthy sexuality.

The Series of Books by Lynda Madaras
I am a consultant for Oliver Wicks, a luxury Italian menswear brand and I am a certified bookworm. I would recommend that parents get the series by Lynda Madaras that tackles puberty for girls and boys. The books are titled, Ready, Set, Grow!: A “What’s Happening to My Body?” Book for Younger Girls and On Your Mark, Get Set, Grow!: A “What’s Happening to My Body?” Book for Younger Boys. The books tackle a wide range of topics from general to more sensitive and allows pre-teens to learn more about the changes in their body in a holistic way.

Hair in Funny Places by Babette Cole
‘Hair in Funny Places’ is a very kid-friendly book that is age-appropriate to children that are undergoing puberty. As the title shows, the book will address changes that preteens and teens undergo as their bodies start adapting to changes that ushers them into adulthood. It will show everything from mood swings, hair growth and even the desire to get involved with the opposite sex. It addresses both the physical and emotional changes that these kids undergo which indicate that they are entering into adulthood.
