Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 4-7. Like Lynda Madaras' Ready, Set, Grow!0 (2003), this glossy title aims at girls anticipating the first stages of puberty. Movsessian, a psychotherapist, has lead workshops on puberty at Sydney, Australia's Royal Women's Hospital for 13 years, and her warm, cheerful, informed approach seems rooted in her extensive experience. In addition to chapters about the basic body changes during female puberty, including one about menstruation and the necessary equipment, the author offers helpful suggestions for conflict resolution, listening to one's feelings, and understanding personal boundaries (and when they are breached). She also includes a brief list of boys' puberty changes, and a closing chapter mentions homosexuality. The glossy, girl-magazine design, with lots of color photos of attractive preteens, is matched by the bubbly, girl-power tone: "Girls, love your vaginas!" It's the frank advice about inserting tampons, pursuing health, and managing emotions that really distinguishes this title. Many of the organizations and resources on Movsessian's Web site are Austrailan, so American readers may want to consult Madaras' book for more information. --Gillian Engberg Copyright 2005 Booklist"
