The best puberty books for 9 year olds

Here you will find some puberty books for 9 year olds that won't tell your child more than they are ready for. 

You might have a 9 year old who is showing some early signs of puberty. Or you might have a 9 year old who is curious about what puberty is all about. Whichever it is, it is important to choose a book that can tell them what they need to know without scaring them. 

The puberty books for 9 year olds that are listed here all meet the following criteria:

1. It has to be at the right reading level. 

2. It has to be simple and not overwhelm kids with too  many details.

3. It doesn't talk about sex or sexual intercourse.

Puberty books for 9 year olds need to be simple and not overwhelm kids with too many unneccesary details. At this age, they just need to know about what will be happening to their body. They actually aren't all that interested in sexual intercourse.  We can talk to them about  sex when they are a bit older and actually interested in learning about sex.

To make it easier, I have broken the puberty books for 9 year olds into two parts ie boys and girls. ​
