Books to Buy When Puberty Is ‘Nigh — for You and Your Kid

by Laura Lambert

The Change. The Talk. Down There. It all sounds so ominous. But it doesn’t have to be. Depending on your own comfort level with the topic of puberty — which can sometimes segue into discussions of sex and sexuality — there are plenty of books that will help you and your tween daughter or son muddle through armed with facts, funny anecdotes, and a good dose of tender loving care and reassurance. (In general, these books are meant for girls and/or boys ages 8 to 12 or so, unless otherwise noted.)

What other books have been great resources for you and your family?
