There is one thing that puzzles Samira ... PERIODS! She has heard people talking about them, but has no idea what they are. With the help of this book and her family, she learns all about that time of the month! This friendly and reassuring book about periods for young girls follows the story of Samira as she finds out from her mum and dad all about when a first period arrives. It clearly explains why girls have them, what happens in the body to make periods and what the first signs of getting a period are. This book demystifies periods, eases worries and provides reassurance that periods are a healthy part of growing up. The author, Rosie Kessous, works for Days for Girls (DfG) UK. DfG is an International Charity providing women's health education, alongside washable sanitary towels produced by volunteers in developed countries for those in need. Rosie's training as an Ambassador of Women's Health Educator and subsequent distribution of washable sanitary pads on a trip to Kenya inspired 'That Time of the Month'. Rosie realised the need for a comprehensive, accessible and engaging book for young girls about menstruation. Rosie is currently working to facilitate a curriculum to be taught in schools in the UK through Days for Girls. Arianna Vettraino (Illustrator) Arianna is an illustrator based in Edinburgh. She believes deeply in the powerful role children's books can play in helping to educate, inform, and inspire young people; and hopes to use her illustrations for this purpose. 'That Time of the Month' is her first children's book which she created whilst studying at university. After reaching out to the charity Days For Girls (UK), expressing her desire to create a book on periods, Arianna was put in contact with Rosie (the author), who shared the belief that a picture book aiming to demystify and encourage openness about periods was needed.
I just wanted her to understand that everything sucks, and I don't need her to fix it; I just need her to get it. Adults can minimize lots of things in girls' lives, from relationships to school pressures, to puberty and periods.

"How can I prepare her for this new phase? I wanted to find a resource that can explain the details of this special stage while also integrating the important aspects of it from the Islamic religion. Being from the West, most books I found only explained the physiological changes. But I found that Muslim girls, especially ones from Western countries, need to know more about the religious implications of this stage. So I decided to write this guide to help young girls understand the basic things a Muslim girl should know about puberty, including the religious aspects that come along with it. However, this guide is just a starter to the journey ahead. I encourage parents to talk with your teens and pre-teens about this important stage of life to have a full and thorough understanding." - Natalia Nabil Includes: What is puberty and its stages. Hygiene tips. Religious duties to perform. And ones to stay away from. And much more

Puberty, Sexuality and the Self considers the effects of puberty and teenage sexuality on adolescents. By analyzing interviews with 55 teenagers, Karin Martin finds that girls' self-esteem drops significantly more than boys' does at adolescence. While this finding is supported by previous studies, Martin picks up where these earlier studies leave off by focusing on girls' development and considering different experiences of puberty and sex as an explanation for girls' greater drop in self-esteem. Puberty, Sexuality and the Self examines voice change, breast development, shaving, expectations of sex, the decision to have sex, experiences of sex and how boys and girls manage their emotions and selves throughout all of these new experiences. Comparing boys and girls at adolescence, Martin takes a qualitative look at puberty and sexuality, supporting her theory in the words of the adolescents themselves.
When most people talk about puberty they think of a girl starting her periods, or a boy whose voice has just broken. ... and oestrogen in the case of girls. All the different changes associated with puberty will last about two years.

“Here’s a handbook to teendom that wins its hipness the hard way: by using good humor and the wisdom of a 2,500-year-old man.” —Booklist A guide for navigating the teen years, Buddha in Your Backpack is for young people who want to learn more about Buddhism or for those who simply want to understand what’s going on inside themselves and in the world around them. Buddha in Your Backpack tells Buddha’s life story in a fashion teens will relate to, describing Buddha as a young rebel not satisfied with the answers of his elders. It then introduces Buddha’s core teachings with chapters like “All About Me” and “Been There, Why’d I Do That?” The author presents thoughtful and spiritual insights on school, dating, hanging out, jobs, and other issues of special interest to teens—inviting readers to look inside themselves for answers. “Flush with good advice, sensibly given. As such it should prove useful both to students interested in Buddhism and to others who simply need good counsel. In fact, Metcalf’s approach is so down-to-earth and inviting that many adults may sneak it off the shelves for themselves.” —School Library Journal

Ethnographers of religion have created a vast record of religious behavior from small-scale non-literate societies to globally distributed religions in urban settings. So a theory that claims to explain prominent features of ritual, myth, and belief in all contexts everywhere causes ethnographers a skeptical pause. In Ritual and Memory, however, a wide range of ethnographers grapple critically with Harvey Whitehouse's theory of two divergent modes of religiosity. Although these contributors differ in their methods, their areas of fieldwork, and their predisposition towards Whitehouse's cognitively-based approach, they all help evaluate and refine Whitehouse's theory and so contribute to a new comparative approach in the anthropology of religion.
