1. Brilliant Questions About Growing Up, Amy Forbes-Robertson & Alex Fryer
Amy and Alex have toured over 200 schools delivering inclusive sex and relationship lessons.
They've taken the toughest and most common questions about puberty from THOUSANDS of UK children and answered them in this simple and empathetic guide to growing up.
From questions about puberty, consent and boundaries to navigating the online world and sexuality, Brilliant Questions About Growing Up is an easy-to-follow toolkit about what 'normal' really means when it comes to growing up (spoiler, it looks different for all of us).
This reassuring read is ideal for 7-11 year olds and offers a non-judgemental approach to all of those difficult, funny and (sometimes) embarrassing questions in a way that facilitates honest and comfortable conversations with children.
2. This Period in my Life, Saskia Boujo
It's a guide book and journal that has been designed to inform and prepare young people for their menstrual cycle. Using ungendered language, This Period in My Life encourages young people to value and understand their periods, as well as connect with their menstrual bleed. Because we all deserve the tools to equip us for one of the biggest chapters of our life.
