Trusted by families for over 20 years The Puberty Book is the classic puberty book for girls and boys aged 9–14.
Children and teenagers usually have lots of questions about what happens to them during puberty.

It answers commons questions asked by boys and girls aged 9-14 such as:
What does it feel like to have a period?
How are sperm made?
Does sex hurt?
What’s a wet dream?

This bestselling book was inspired by the authors’ real work with real kids and real parents in real situations. This book is suitable to be given to your child so they can read it alone, and it can also be used as a valuable resource for parents.
