Period. A Girl’s Guide

by JoAnn Loulan and Bonnie Worthen
Illustrated by Chris Wold Dyrud and Marcia Quackenbush

Winter 2009 - Volume 13 Number 1

When I first opened the pages of PERIOD. A Girl’s Guide, I was hesitant to revisit the days of my first experiences with puberty. But this book exceeded my expectations and made even the most uncomfortable topic easy to read. PERIOD: A Girls Guide discusses everything a young woman needs to know as her body undergoes various changes. There is nothing left out, from diagrams of a woman’s body to the first visit with a gynecologist.
