Detailed information is presented in short sentences, with clear messages in a visually uncluttered way. Practical tips and euphemisms of speech are explained (e.g. voices breaking) and accompanied with related illustrations.
Topics: hair, voice changes, bodies, anatomical changes, hygiene, clothes, skin, crushes, emotions, friendships, the internet, safety etc. There is also a section for advice on professionals. We have an equivalent book written specifically for boys in this series (56503).
