I have been a huge fan of Christiane Northrop for some time. Northrup's books and talks on women's health are wonderful - well researched, detailed, informative and empowering. So, I was pretty excited to discover that she had written a book for young girls.
'Beautiful Girl: Celebrating the Wonders of Your Body', has been written for little girls aged 2-5. This is not a 'where-do-I-come-from' book, it is a book about developing a positive attitude towards being a girl and having a girls body. The book is filled with opportunity for all sorts of discussion with your little girl.
A garden is filled with delicate plants and tiny creatures.
As you walk among them, you are careful with them.
You should be just as careful with your own body.
Treat it gently and make sure that others treat it gently too. (Beautiful Girl, Northrup. C, 2012)

Lilli gave the book 4/5 (she is a little bit older than the age group it is aimed at and not old enough to appreciate it from an adults perspective). I gave it 5/5.
