A friendly and reassuring book about periods for young girls
There is one thing that puzzles Samira ... PERIODS! She has heard people talking about them, but has no idea what they are. With the help of this book and her family, she learns all about that time of the month!
This friendly and reassuring book about periods for young girls follows the story of Samira as she finds out from her mum and dad all about when a first period arrives. It clearly explains why girls have them, what happens in the body to make periods and what the first signs of getting a period are.
The book aims to demystify periods, ease any worries and provide reassurance that periods are a healthy part of growing up.
The author, Rosie Kessous, works for Days for Girls (DfG) UK. DfG is an International Charity providing women's health education, alongside washable sanitary towels produced by volunteers in developed countries for those in need. Rosie's training as an Ambassador of Women's Health Educator and subsequent distribution of washable sanitary pads on a trip to Kenya inspired 'That Time of the Month'. Rosie realised the need for a comprehensive, accessible and engaging book for young girls about menstruation. Rosie is currently working to facilitate a curriculum to be taught in schools in the UK through Days for Girls.
