Book Review: A fun story for tweens about puberty in girls.
A short overview of this book
Poppy Pretzel: Passage into Puberty by Debi Slinger prepares girls for puberty by telling the story of what puberty is like for a girl as she goes through it.
Most books about puberty are nonfiction (full of facts) instead of fiction which tells a story. So it is very unusual to find a book that talks about puberty as a story but also teaches. This story does that, with the story of a girl as her first period arrives. The author touches on many of the fears that girls may have eg what to do if you get it at school, will it hurt, the shame etc.
A good book to look at if your tween finds fact-filled books a bit of a bore.
Sexual intercourse is NOT talked about in this book.
