The Period Book by Karen Gravelle is a book for older girls that tells them everything they need to know about puberty, periods and growing up.
It was updated mid 2017, and now includes extra information on pornography, sexting and social media. It provides really good age-appropriate information on love, sex, relationships, consent, STIs, contraception and much more.
Sexual intercourse is talked about in this book.
The Period Book by Karen Gravelle is ideal for children between the ages of 12 – 14 years of age.
