Gr 4 Up–So many aspects of the human body are normal, yet rarely discussed, leading tweens to question, “Is this normal?” As a gynecologist and parent, Rodgers is here aiming to help young people understand their body and what is normal. From what makes up the reproductive system to menstruation to how babies are born, Rodgers handles these topics in a manner suited to the target audience. While low in page length, this book packs a heap of useful information. Detailed illustrations add a helpful visual to support the knowledgeable text. The diversity in these illustrations is a bonus. A glossy of terms is another valuable addition. While some may feel embarrassed to read this book, they will feel more confident about their bodies.
VERDICT An accessible and helpful text for tweens and young teens to read independently or with adults.
