Puberty is a time a girl’s precious body image is at stake. My Body’s Superpower shows girls just how amazing and powerful their changing bodies are so they will want to take care of themselves.
Each chapter utilizes the Superpower Formula: understanding what is happening inside the body (Super Knowledge), decoding body signals (Body Talk), and learning how to “time travel” to the future when making decisions. Whether it’s the different stages of puberty, the reason behind intense hunger and weight gain, or feeling emotional and unsure about friends, this book has it covered.
The book is divided into three parts that cover 9 superpowers:
- Physical Powers: Understanding physical changes during puberty and giving the body what it needs to thrive.
- Emotional Powers: Tuning into the inner world of feelings, choosing the best super friends, and taking time to discover more about yourself and what excites you.
- Outside Powers: Learning how to critically think about media messages and reduce pressure in both the “virtual” and “real” worlds.
The book is even better when read alongside a trusted female adult. So it has the potential of bonding time, sharing stories, and helping both girls and women appreciate their bodies. It’s available in hardback, paperback, and e-book.
