About the Book:
Ultimately, MY LITTLE READ BOOK is more than a collection of stories. It is a call for a change in attitude, for a new way of seeing periods. In a time when the taboo around menstruation seems to be one of the few left standing, it makes a difficult subject easier to talk about, and helps girls feel proud instead of embarrassed or ashamed. By revealing what it feels like to undergo this experience first hand, and giving women the chance to explain their feelings in their own words, it aims to provide support, entertainment, and a starting point for discussion for mothers and daughters everywhere. It is a book every girl should have. Period.
I grew up with a very open mother so I was not shocked when I got my period. And although we had talked about it it was still only one account of what was going to happen. I think this book is a must read for any woman and a must read for any mother or father that has a daughter. The stories are insightful, and while some are for a more mature audience (opinion) I believe that we can all relate to more than one of them. I applaud the author and wish her well with this book!
