My daughter (9 yrs, turns 10 in Nov) found this bk ON HER OWN at the Library on Friday and her nose hasn't come out of it since. It has opened up conversation betw her and I, where otherwise, I probably would have waited til her first session of "sex ed" coming up in 4th grade this coming year.
She is really interested in it - and has even been better about putting her own deodorant on - flossing her teeth and using mouthwash - and yesterday she said "Mom smell my arms", she said, "I used vanilla lotion!!"!!!
She is missing her fingers on her right hand so putting her hair up in a pony is a bit difficult, I have always done her hair. Yesterday she asked me to use my hair dryer - and she did her hair ALL ON HER OWN!!!!!!!!!!! I was so impressed! She has really learned a lot from this bk!
She's so proud - and for her - a child who hasn't shown a great deal of interest in personal hygeine, it has been a great bk!!
I HIGHLY RECOMMENED! I think I'll actually buy a copy since I have 3 girls.....
