The Care and Keeping of You 2 American Girl by Cara Natterson is an American Girl book about puberty and growing up for slightly older tweens.
This is the next book from American Girl and is for girls who are starting to show some signs of puberty (the first book, The Care and Keeping of You 1, is for girls who have yet to experience changes to their body). This book covers new questions that girls might have about periods, their growing body, peer pressure, personal care, and more!
Being an American Girl book, sex and sexual feelings are not talked about, so if you are looking for a puberty book that doesn’t talk about sex, then this is a book to consider.
Sexual intercourse is NOT talked about in this book.
The Care and Keeping of You 2 (American Girl) by Cara Natterson is ideal for children between the ages of 10 – 12 years of age.
