Girls Only! All About Periods and Growing-up Stuff
"Girls Only!" focuses on the practicalities of periods, the social and personal implications of starting your period, and the physical and emotional developments in puberty.

It's the perfect first book about periods for girls of primary school age as it provides information at the right level. The tone is positive and reassuring and complemented by quirky illustrations throughout.
