Before She Gets her Period by Jessica B. Gillooly is a book that will help parents to prepare their daughter for her periods (menstruation).
This book focuses 100% on periods and is a really good book that is filled with lots of helpful information, and suggestions on how to get talking, whether your daughter wants to talk or not.
It is filled with lots of exercises and activities that will help you to get talking. And shares lots of stories, which are always interesting to read!
This is an older book that was published in 1998, but it hasn’t really dated, as not a lot has changed with periods. We now have period pants, and talk about gender differently, and girls can now chart their period with an app on their phone, but other than that, not a lot has really changed!
So if you’re looking for a book that will help you with chatting about periods, and you don’t know where to start, then this is the perfect book for the job!
This is a book for parents, rather than for kids.
