Ready, Set, Grow!

In her uniquely warm and funny style, Lynda wrote this entirely new book especially for younger girls to give them what they need to know to celebrate and accept the new and exciting changes that are happening to their bodies during puberty.

Illustrated with delightful drawings, Ready, Set, Grow! is the sixth book in the popular Madaras "What's Happening to My Body" series of growing-up books for girls and boys. Praised by parents, teachers, nurses, doctors, and especially kids, the bestselling "What's Happening to My Body" books for older girls and boys are on the "Best Books for Young Adults" list from the American Library Association, and have been translated into 12 languages. Over 2,000,000 copies of the "What's Happening to My Body" series are in print.

A note from the author: Hi, I'm Lynda Madaras
What's happening to me? puberty is about change
Buds, boobs, and bras: your growing breasts
Hair, there and everywhere: all about body hair
You grow, girl! the height spurt
Bigger Is beautiful: the weight spurt
BO and zits: a survival guide
What's up down there? a look at your private parts
The inside story: changes you can't see
That time of the month: all about getting your period
Yours alone: respecting and protecting your body.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "\f2\froman\fcharset1 TimesNewRoman; Gr. 2-5. In her revised edition of The What's Happening to My Body? Book for Girls (2001), Madaras notes that girls are reaching puberty at a younger age than in the past. In this small, square volume, Madaras offers a spin-off guide directed to the youngest girls who are anticipating or undergoing the body's first changes. Goofy cartoons illustrate the upbeat, reassuring chapters about menstruation, breast development, and the reproductive organs as well as grooming issues, such as skin care, body odor, and shaving. There are medical tips just for the girls in this age group, who, for example, need to treat cramps differently from older young women or adults. The short chapter about sexual harassment is somewhat vague, but it offers solid advice in firm language: "Don't accept excuses like 'Boys will be boys.'" Parents and kids seeking information about sex and birth control will need to consult another guide, but this one is a friendly, accessible introduction to puberty that young girls can read alone, not just with parents. --Gillian Engberg Copyright 2003 Booklist"
