Details: Product Description Becoming a teen is an important milestone in every boy’s life. It’s even more important to get answers and advice to the most common health issues boys face from a trusted source. The American Medical Association Boy’s Guide to Becoming a Teen is filled with invaluable advice to get you ready for the changes you will experience during puberty. Learn about these important topics and more: Puberty and what kinds of physical and emotional changes you can expect―from your developing body to your feelings about girls The importance of eating the right foods and taking care of your body Pimples, acne, and how to properly care for your skin Your reproductive system―inside and out Thinking about relationships and dealing with new feelings From School Library Journal Grade 5-8–These accessible guides are nearly identical in the treatment of several subjects, such as healthy eating, exercise, and skin care, and the chapters on feelings, relationships, and sex. The information is presented in a straightforward manner without judgment, which may be comforting to preteens who are finding the road to adulthood a somewhat frightening path. The focus is on physical changes and some of the accompanying feelings. Sexual activity is mentioned, but readers are encouraged to wait until they are older, and contraception is not discussed in detail. Good, sound primers.– Elaine Baran Black, Gwinnett County Public Library, Lawrenceville, GA Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. From Booklist Gr. 4-7. Published in conjunction with the American Medical Association, this guide addresses puberty's changes clearly, and many of the seemingly male-oriented topics covered here could also interest girls: weight-lifting, for example, and handling arguments that escalate into physical fights. Cartoon drawings of too-perfect teens illustrate, but as in Girl's Guide to Becoming a Teen (2006) by the same author, the text's approach is straightforward, accessible, and nonjudgmental, whether the topic is same-sex attraction or divorcing parents. The volume closes with an extensive resource section, including hotlines. Gillian Engberg Copyright © American Library Association.
