Hi, today we are looking at a book called 100+ Answers About Puberty by Interrelate. Now, the edition I am currently looking at came out in 2010. There has been a more recent update, but I have checked it out in the library, and it is not too different. I do not plan on buying it since my edition is very similar to the modern one.

So, what does this book talk about? While the book itself is not very big, being only 28 pages long, it has loads of information on puberty.

An example of this would be getting your period. However, the range of topics it covers is massive. Some of the other topics include; what is puberty, what makes it happen, what is it like, what happens to girls, what happens to boys, how to look after ourselves, and sexual intercourse.

Everything this book talks about it age appropriate. Even while it covers topics like STIs and keeping safe, it is written in a way ten to twelve-year-olds can understand.

This book is useful. It is the sort of book you can have on your shelf and, if any questions arise, you can just pick it up and flip through it. Maybe your child asks,
“Why does puberty happen?” You can pick the book up and say,
“Well, let’s see if we can find an answer out in here.”

Not only is the book useful in that regards, but the book is extremely reliable. The agency that wrote this book runs a sex education workshop for children. By using this, they can gather real questions asked by kids and have professionals answer them.

Okay, I hope that helps. Cheers.
