Here’s everything you need to know about being a pre-teen, from Kaz Cooke, author of Girl Stuff for Teens. Girl Stuff for Girls aged 8-12 is the fun, friendly antidote to the nasty, hard-sell, negative and sexualised messages that bombard girls.

It’s fun and friendly, especially written for this age group with practical advice backed by experts. It’s full of great cartoon images on a diverse range of topics for girls.

What I’m Liking
Girl Stuff for Girls Aged 8 – 12 is a fantastic little book. It really is written so young girls can understand it.

One of the great features of this book is the real life comments written by young girls scattered throughout. It addresses issues in a fun, but super-informative way, that some girls may be too embarrassed to talk about with friends and family members, such as changes to their body, social issues, and health.

This is a great, factual book packed with a lot of information for young girls, which is easily relatable. I think it’s also a useful book for parents to read, as it offers some useful insights into how to open up a conversation with your children about a range of tricky issues.
