So you’d like to speak with your preteen about her body image . . . but what’s the best way to bring such a sensitive topic to the table? Well, you could start by giving her a copy of Body Talk (Maple Tree Press, 2002). Written by award-winning Canadian parenting author Ann Douglas and her 14-year-old daughter, Julie, this book is the latest addition to the popular Girl Zone book series. Geared toward girls aged 9–13, Body Talk offers straightforward information on body image, fitness and nutrition. Its frank but tasteful text describes how your daughter’s body is changing and how she can maintain physical fitness and a positive outlook on life during this turbulent time of transition.
