FROM GIRL TO WOMAN cover image
Definitely a topic kids are sensitive about. Eleven-year-old girls commented: "It shows what to expect when I get my first period. I'm not as fearful or confused now. It's a normal part of becoming a woman." They enjoyed seeing how other cultures celebrate this rite of passage, and loved seeing how Indian girls are feasted and given gifts in their honor.
Very open and informative discussion about menstruation. Probably best watched with an adult. Points out how every girl is unique in terms of timing and physical attributes, gives proper names for anatomical parts, and offers a look at rites of passage ceremonies worldwide. Doesn't discuss conception of a baby at all. Sticks to topic on hand.
