This fact-filled guide to periods is bursting with positive, honest advice on managing and understanding menstruation. Having a period is an incredible thing - Own Your Period celebrates what the body can do and provides young people (age 9+) with everything they need to be prepared... and empowered.

Includes the fascinating science behind why things happen, with all the details of menstruation through to the menopause. Answers all essential questions like what's a vulva and what does it look like, what do periods actually feel like, and what happens if blood stains your clothes?

Chella Quint's witty text slays superstitions, busts common myths and fights period shame, while providing practical information about menstrual products, tracking cycles and sharing her own personal stories. Funny, insightful and warm illustrations with friendly chatty text makes this an everything-you-need-to-know essential handbook, which pre-teens can refer to before their periods start, and will appreciate when their cycle is more established.
