Booklist Review

Gr. 5^-7. The most obvious change in this revised edition (originally published in 1979 by Volcano Press) is the artwork. The design and the black-and-white line drawings, this time by Chris Wold Dyrud and Marcia Quackenbush, are far more appealing than those in the earlier book. The organization is also much better, with clear subheads setting up answers to questions about such basic, very practical matters as "What do I do when I get my period for the first time?" and "What kind of exercise can I do?" The text has undergone a few changes, too (there's acknowledgement of PMS, for example), though much is the same in its coverage of topics ranging from tampons and cramps to a pelvic exam. New to this edition are a calendar for photocopying and an index (awkwardly positioned before the helpful guide for parents). Unlike Robie Harris' It's Perfectly Normal (1994), the focus here is strictly on menstruation; this is not a book about puberty or an introduction to sexuality. But it's a warmly encouraging book, that tells it like it is for young girls. --Stephanie Zvirin
