Reviews

These attractively illustrated books, with their clear, anatomically correct pictures and simple, unambiguous text, deal bravely with the aspects of sexuality that are challenging to teach and will facilitate discussion and learning. They will be a very welcome addition to the bookshelves of families who have an adolescent on the autism spectrum. -- Sarah Attwood, author of Making Sense of Sex
This series is perfect for use in sex education classes. An excellent and very helpful choice for professionals working with people with ASD! -- Ioannis Voskopoulos-Labrini Ioannou, psychologist
In very simple, unambiguous text and quite graphic pictures, we see Ellie beginning to grow up and the signs that she notices as she does so - hair in unusual places, spots, enlarging breasts, larger hips, and periods...while meant for girls on the autistic spectrum, this could be of real use to any young girl facing the challenges of growing up. -- HealthyBooks
