Children today want and need answers to questions about physical changes in puberty and related matters, much sooner than their parents did. They are more sexualized, growing up faster, and entering puberty earlier than ever before. Yet many parents still either avoid sexuality education or miss it completely through their own ignorance or fears. This title is the answer! Written for children between the ages of 8 and 13 in an easy question and answer format, with delightful illustrations to add a fun element, it will double as an invaluable guide for parents so that they can answer their children's questions candidly, with knowledge, sensitivity and humour.

Jou liggaam verander, nuwe emosies verwar jou en jy het honderd duisend vrae wat jy nie weet hoe of vir wie om te vra nie. Jy is skielik fyngevoelig, selfbewus en sommer net moeilik... Maar hoekom? En hoekom is daardie pes van n meisiekind ewe skielik vir jou so oulik? As al die bogenoemde waar is, is hierdie boek vir jou. Want jy is n puber en n nuwe wereld gaan vir jou oop. Selfs nog voor jongmense vir die eerste keer seks en seksualiteit ondervind, wonder meisies en seuns reeds n geruime tyd oor al hierdie dinge. Ouers weet meestal nie hoe om sulke sensitiewe vrae te beantwoord nie en het nie noodwendig tyd om by te hou met wat in hul tienerkinders se koppe aangaan nie. Met die gevaar van ongekontroleerde bronne op die internet vandag, is dit belangrik om die regte inligting van n betroubare bron te verkry, en dis wat hierdie boek poog om te doen. Jan von Holleben het op by kreatiewe en prettige wyse die avontuur van grootword deur middel van fotos daargestel, en Antje Helms gee insiggewende antwoorde op n direkte, maar sensitiewe, manier. Die boek bied antwoorde op allerhande vrae oor puberteit en seks wat jongmense nie noodwendig vir hul ouers wil vra nie.

Boys need to know that prince charmings and brave hunters are not the only role-models

In fact, a whole lot of them out there don't identify with the idea of being a strong, independent, competitive saviour who never cries. As a boy, there is an assumption that you will conform to this stereotypical idea of masculinity, but what if you're the introvert kind, what if you prefer to pick up a book rather than a sword, what if you're very sensitive, what if you like the idea of wearing a dress?

As statistics keep showing that there is an ongoing crisis with regards to young men and mental health, with unhelpful gender stereotypes contributing to this malaise, Stories for Boys Who Dare To Be Different offers a welcome alternative narrative. It is an extraordinary compilation of 100 stories of famous and not-so-famous men from the past to the present day, every single one of them a rule-breaker and innovator in his own way, and all going on to achieve amazing things. Entries include Frank Ocean, Salvador Dali, Rimbaud, Beethoven, Barack Obama, Ai Weiwei and Jesse Owens - different sorts of heroes from all walks of life and from all over the world.

A beautiful and transporting book packed with stories of adventure and wonderment, it will appeal to those who need the courage to reject peer pressure and go against the grain. It will educate and entertain, while also encourage and inspire.

Your favorite YA authors including Ellen Hopkins, Maureen Johnson, and more recount their own experiences with mental illness in this raw, real, and powerful collection of essays that explores everything from ADD to PTSD.

Have you ever felt like you just couldn't get out of bed? Not the occasional morning, but every day? Do you find yourself listening to a voice in your head that says "you're not good enough," "not good looking enough," "not thin enough," or "not smart enough"? Have you ever found yourself unable to do homework or pay attention in class unless everything is "just so" on your desk? Everyone has had days like that, but what if you have them every day?

You're not alone. Millions of people are going through similar things. However issues around mental health still tend to be treated as something shrouded in shame or discussed in whispers. It's easier to have a broken bone--something tangible that can be "fixed"--than to have a mental illness, and easier to have a discussion about sex than it is to have one about mental health.

Life Inside My Head is an anthology of true-life events from writers of this generation, for this generation. These essays tackle everything from neurodiversity to addiction to OCD to PTSD and much more. The goals of this book range from providing home to those who are feeling alone, awareness to those who are witnessing a friend or family member struggle, and to open the floodgates to conversation.

Participating writers include E.K. Anderson, J.L. Armentrout, Cyn Balog, Amber Benson, Francesca Lia Block, Jessica Burkhart, Crissa Chappell, Sarah Fine, Kelly Fiore, Candace Ganger, Meghan Kelley Hall, Cynthia Hand, Ellen Hopkins, Maureen Johnson, Tara Kelly, Karen Mahoney, Melissa Marr, Kim McCreight, Hannah Moskowitz, Scott Neumyer, Lauren Oliver, Aprilynne Pike, Tom Pollack, Amy Reed, Cindy Rodriquez, Francisco Stork, Wendy Tolliver, Rob Wells, Dan Wells, Rachel Wilson, and Sara Zarr.

Author Rachel Hruza has firsthand experience of wearing a back brace as a teen, bringing the knowledge and understanding necessary to tell Truth's story in a believable and sympathetic way. #WeHaveDiverseBooks: this story addresses living with a physical disability and the mental and social pressures and difficulties associated with it in an accessible and relateable way. Children and teens are familiar with scoliosis and many may know someone affected by it: Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine that affects two to three percent of the population, or an estimated 7 million people in the United States. Most are diagnosed with scoliosis between the ages of 10 and 15. (Source: National Scoliosis Foundation, www.scoliosis.org). Story also hits on themes common to all tweens: friendship issues; first crushes and relationships; school pressures; not judging others by their appearance; and figuring out morals, values, and how to be true to yourself. Though it addresses a serious topic, the upbeat tone and humorous voice make this a fun read.

In the wake of a destructive tornado, one girl develops feelings for another in this stunning, tender novel about emerging identity, perfect for fans of The Thing About Jellyfish.

When a tornado rips through town, twelve-year-old Ivy Aberdeen's house is destroyed and her family of five is displaced. Ivy feels invisible and ignored in the aftermath of the storm--and what's worse, her notebook filled with secret drawings of girls holding hands has gone missing.

Mysteriously, Ivy's drawings begin to reappear in her locker with notes from someone telling her to open up about her identity. Ivy thinks--and hopes--that this someone might be her classmate, another girl for whom Ivy has begun to develop a crush. Will Ivy find the strength and courage to follow her true feelings?

Ivy Aberdeen's Letter to the World exquisitely enriches the rare category of female middle-grade characters who like girls--and children's literature at large.
