Puberty can be a difficult time for a young girl—and it's natural not to know who (or what) to ask. Celebrate Your Body is a reassuring puberty book for girls that encourages them to face puberty and their body's changes with excitement and empowerment. From period care to mysterious hair in new places, this age-appropriate sex education book has the answers young girls are looking for—in a way that they can relate to.

Covering everything from bras to braces, this body-positive puberty book for girls offers friendly guidance and support for when it's needed most. In addition to tips on managing intense feelings, making friends, and more, this book provides advice on what to eat and how to exercise so your body is healthy, happy, and ready for the changes ahead.

  • PUBERTY EXPLAINED: Explanations on what happens, when it happens, and why the body (and mind) is amazing in every way.

  • SOCIAL SKILL DEVELOPMENT: Help your young girl discover how to use her voice to stand up to peer pressure, stay safe on social media, and keep the right kind of friends.

  • SELF-CARE TIPS: This body book for girls 9-12 helps them discover how to choose the right food, exercise, and sleep schedule to keep their changing bodies at their best.

Praise For…

"The last thing I expected to do while reading this colorful and celebratory book for youth was cry, but as I went through each page I found myself with tears streaming down my face. Tears for my "past pre-teen self" who finally, after twenty years, felt seen... and tears for the next generation of amazing humans who will have this extraordinary guidebook (and Sonya) to hold their hand while explaining how their bodies are undeniably remarkable in every way."—Jes Baker, Body Positive Activist, author of Things No One Will Tell Fat Girls? and Landwhale

"Celebrate Your Body is a wonderful book full of wisdom and affirmation for young girls at a time when their lives are fraught with change. Thank you, Sonya Renee, for writing a book about puberty that is both informative and joyous! What a gift! A must read for the tweens in all of ourlives."—Deb Hauser, President, Advocates for Youth

"This book exemplifies the love and care that is necessary to help young people grow into healthy adults. As an educator, I am privy to unfortunate outcomes of miseducation when talking about puberty. Sonya has managed to create an experience of celebration through her thoughtful approach to delivering the facts about puberty in a way that can help girls feel proud of their bodies and the puberty experience."—Patrick Smith Director of Education, Equity & Inclusion, Planned Parenthood Southeastern Pennsylvania

“Taylor’s book unapologetically leads with the positive, focusing much more on what bodies can do rather than what they look like. Even with that focus, Taylor manages to hammer home that all bodies are beautiful, that it’s possible to be healthy at every size, and that each body progresses at its own rate…”—Rachelle Hampton, slate.com
