Girlology: There’s Something New About You by Melissa Holmes & Trish Hutchison is one of the few books that teaches girls about puberty through the telling of a story.
This book is a puberty book for tweens that covers a diverse range of topics. The authors use some lovely stories about a group of girls who are growing up. So they tell a short story eg your first period, and then provide information on what a period is and how to manage it. The book talks about all the physical, emotional and social changes that happen during puberty.
Sexual intercourse is NOT talked about in this book.
