The Care & Keeping of You: The Body Book for Girls by Valorie Schaefer

When we were little, American Girl publications were a pretty big deal in our house. I had a subscription to the magazine and my sister and I had dolls and books that corresponded with those dolls. Of course, as I started to grow up the American Girl phenomenon was no longer something I was interested in, but this book was still really really helpful. My mom bought it for me and left it on my bed when I was at school. She understood that some of the issues of being a pre-teen (or just hitting the teenage years) was something I would be uncomfortable talking to her about.

Learning about some of this stuff through a book that I trusted was a lot easier than asking my mom about the pros and cons of tampon-usage and what type of product I should use when my armpits smell.

I love that this book doesnt give really heavy advice that could misinform girls about eating disorders and emotional turbulence. I like how they always provide the advice of talking to a parent, teacher or other trusted adult when needed.

Im glad that American Girl was there for me and I hope it will still be around for girls for years to come.

I first learned about periods from a cartoon. Just before I started middle school, my mom handed me a large white book with three cartoon girls on the cover, each wrapped in a towel, dripping wet, as though fresh out of the shower. Each page featured smiling cartoon girls of all races and sizes demonstrating everything from how to shave your legs to how to shop for a first bra.
