    My 7.5 year old daughter has started showing signs of early puberty.

    She started growing pubic hair at age 6 and now has underarm hair growing.

    I would like to start talking to her about menstruation so that if it does happen soon she's not unaware. However at age 7.5 I dont want to freak her out either.

    Does anyone have any good book recommendations for teaching a younger girl abut menstruation?

    Yes, I do !

    My all time favorites are the American Girl books.

    Here is the link,

    You can also find them on Amazon or the Library, but passed along the link so you could see how many there are.

    Take care,
