Reviews

'Time after time, Growing Up manages tricky subjects without fuss... The text is sanely direct ... in everything it covers, the book will inform, relieve anxiety and ... it will teach one sex about the other with graphic clarity' - Times Educational Supplement; 'A shining example of how lively an information book can be... highly recommended for teenagers who know someone expecting a baby, and for those considering a career in childcare' - Woman and Home; 'One of my favourite books is Understanding the Facts of Life. It covers everything from puberty, changes in the body and periods, to how babies are made and grow. It's a nice book to go back to (don't expect to get the subject over in one sitting), and while it's scientific and uses proper words for things (I think this is important), it's accessible. When your daughters are older - although there's no reason why they can't read it whenever they want to - there's also What's Happening to Me?' - The Guardian'
