The Care and Keeping of Us is a mother/daughter set of books from American Girl that provide an opportunity for talking and learning about puberty together.
This is a set of 3 books that provide information but also questions. So it provides both you and daughter with information about growing up. As well as many questions that you can ask each other, to keep the conversation going. There is also a journal that provides some structured content that you can work through together, strengthening your connection with each other. A good alternative to the other American Girl books but it talks more about growing up than the changes associated with puberty.
Sexual intercourse is NOT talked about in this book.
The Care and Keeping of Us (American Girl) is ideal for children between the ages of 11 – 13 years of age.
