Abstract
In French, this booklet is designed for girls who are starting their pubertal development at the early end of the normal range, about 8 years or so. The booklet describes the normal physical events of puberty, and it addresses the range of normal timing of puberty in girls. It discusses some reasons why some girls may start their puberty earlier than others, and it describes what might happen if a girl with early puberty visits a Pediatric Endocrinologist. Many practical pieces of advice and answers to commonly asked questions are also offered. The final page lists a few resource books on puberty which parents and girls may find helpful.

Abstract
When Natalie's little brother Evan Earl is born prematurely, he's earns the nickname Evan Early. No one can say for sure when Evan will come home from the hospital. To help her with this uncertainty, Natalie's father gives her a calendar to keep track of the days - each day that Natalie colors in is one day closer to the day Evan can come home. Natalie visits Evan in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and talks to the nurses about what they do, and her Mom explains how the tubes and machines are helping Evan to breathe and eat. As the days go by and become 'rainbow weeks' on Natalie's coloring calendar, she gets lonely and a little scared; her parents spend most of their time with Evan in the NICU. She finally gets upset by their neglect. Her Mom reassures her that they haven't forgotten about her. Natalie learns that, although her brother might always need special help and lots of attention, she can be a big help and teach him family traditions.

Abstract
Children spend a lot of time debating with each other over what makes a boy a boy and a girl a girl. It's a time of choices. It's a time of creating themselves. It could be a time for blending and embracing the many ways they express themselves, but it is too often a time of narrowing the possibilities of who they can be. This book enters into this conversation and opens it up. It is the story of a child thinking through who she is, a child learning through her mother's love how to be both strong and soft.

Abstract
This updated edition of Joan Jacobs Brumberg's "Fasting Girls", gives a history of women's food-refusal dating back as far as the sixteenth century. The book tells of medieval martyrs who used starvation to show religious devotion, "wonders of science" whose families capitalized on their ability to survive on flower petals and air, and silent screen stars whose strict "slimming" regimens inspired a generation. It also looks at how the Industrial Revolution produced a disorder that continues to render women helpless. The book offers understanding to victims and their families, clinicians, and all women who are interested in the origins and future of this complex, modern and characteristically female disease.

Abstract
A collection of materials that guide families through children's early experiences which lay the foundation for literacy. This is aimed at children will learn to read Braille. The Program has been designed for children with visual impairments, ages birth to eight years old, and the parents, families and professionals who care for them. It is equally valuable to older children with multiple disabilities, as well as to adults with visual impairments for use with sighted children.
Notes
The Perkins Panda Early Literacy Program consists of three packets, each containing a storybook, cassette and activity guide that are designed to support each other but also to stand alone:
Storybooks: Large print, uncontracted braille, and high-contrast illustrations. Belly Button is a tactile board book. Renowned musician and storyteller Odds Bodkin created the character Perkins Panda and wrote all the storybooks in collaboration with Perkins School for the Blind's Early Literacy Program Committee.
Cassettes: Songs and new stories to complement the storybooks. Written and performed by Odds Bodkin.
Activity guides: Suggested hands-on activities and songs that support each packet’s learning goals. Each has four sections: songs, daily activities, play and stories.
Families may view in SHERC if interested in purchasing their own.

Abstract
Puberty is a time of huge change in the physical body, in emotional experience and in social relationships. Having an understanding of these developments and learning how to deal with them is essential, and for people with Asperger's syndrome it can be a challenge to get to grips with the social and emotional aspects of puberty, sex and relationships.This book is ideal for those who need clear, detailed explanations and direct answers to the many questions raised by puberty and sexual maturity. Sarah Attwood describes developments in both the male and female body, and explains how to maintain hygiene and personal care, and to promote general good health. She examines emotional changes, including moods and sexual feelings, and provides comprehensive information on sex, sexual health and reproduction. She looks at the nature of friendship, how it changes from childhood to adulthood and its importance as a basis for sexual encounter. She also offers coping strategies for different social experiences, from bullying to dating, and includes essential tips on the politics of mature behaviour, such as knowing the difference between public and personal topics of conversation. Making Sense of Sex is a thorough guide written in unambiguous language with helpful diagrams, explanations and practical advice for young people approaching puberty and beyond.
