As young girls, the process of growing up can be confusing, especially when our bodies are changing in many ways! All girls go through puberty, starting as young as age eight, but this doesn’t have to be a scary time.
Kaitlyn & Zoey’s Guide to Growing Up! is a simple yet informative guide to these changes. Young girls will realize when they read this book that they are not alone in this very important time in their lives – and that growing up is just a natural part of life!
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
A bookkeeper at Power Transmission Services in Middletown, Delaware, Andrea Russell was inspired to write this book when her ten-year-old granddaughter with autism started going through puberty, and she wanted her to be able to relate to a text more geared toward younger girls that was simple and easy to understand.
Andrea and her husband, Rick, have three daughters: Kelly, Jennifer, and Erica. Her two granddaughters – Kaitlyn and Zoey – are the stars of her book! She is a member of the Autism Society of Delaware and the Special Olympics. She also loves to cook, sew, go to the beach, and spend time with her wonderful family.
