Offers twelve real-life stories about "becoming a woman" through the experiences of different women from diverse backgrounds, cultures, and times.

A baker's dozen short stories, Period Pieces: Stories for Girls, ed. by Erzsi Deak and Kristin Embry . This book would be a wonderful gift for any girl dealing with her own thoughts about puberty and the changes that occur.

A baker's dozen short stories, Period Pieces: Stories for Girls, ed. by Erzsi Deak and Kristin Embry Litchman, focuses on-you guessed it-the facts, the fears and, sometimes, the sheer embarrassment of menstruation. Contributors include Newbery Medalist Linda Sue Park ("White Pants"); Dian Curtis Regan ("Living on Chocolate"); and Rita Williams-Garcia ("Making Do").

A collection of stories about the onset of menstruation by some very well-known female writers for young people. What surprises in this gathering is the overwhelming sense of embarrassment and ignorance about the arrival of monthly courses. Linda Sue Park writes with great wit about her first-and last-pair of white pants, and what happened to them. Cynthia Leitich Smith tells of the kindly cowboy, barely older than she, who rescues her from fear of heights on horseback and from being caught on said horse with no supplies or nearby bathroom.

Girls will undoubtably find at least one story they can relate to. I'm recommending 'Period Pieces' to parents of both boys and girls. My only caution would be to evaluate the maturity of the reader before you just hand it over. It's definitely a book for everyone to read, but I would recommend parents read it too. You'll be better prepared when the questions come.

You may wonder if you're the only girl you know who doesn't have her period. Or you may feel excited about growing up. Are you confused about what's happening inside your body? Or do you feel silly as you giggle with your mom or friends about the pamphlets you're given in school? In these frank and often poignant new short stories, twelve stellar authors explore the anxiety and excitement of "becoming a woman.

Starting the French chapter of the Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators (SCBWI) in 1995, Erzsi eventually ran the international arm of the SCBWI for nearly ten years, developing and mentoring writers, illustrators and publishing programs in 28 countries.

Book Description Girlfriend. That time of the month. Being on the rag. The curse. You might have a different name for it, but all of these words mean the same thing: your period. And the number of nicknames you can make up for your period is nothing compared to the number of ways you can feel about it. You may wonder if you're the only girl you know who doesn't have her period. Are you confused about what's happening inside your body? Or do you feel silly as you giggle with your mom or friends about the pamphlets you're given in school?

A book of short stories about periods. Girls who can't wait to get their periods, girls who think it's gross, and a story about a girl who was wearing white pants when she got hers. Salsabrarian Feb 2, 2016.

Wow! I loved these stories. Told with great humor, although some of the tales are a little old at this point, they have aged very well. This book would be a wonderful gift for any girl dealing with her own thoughts about puberty and the changes that occur. And I'm going to add that it may be appropriate for many boys -- it would be great if middle school boys could be supported in thinking more empathetically about the different life experiences of girls, and what they go through.

As I love many of the authors featured in this collection, I grabbed this copy when I spotted it at my local Indie. I thought I'd have a leisurely read through, but lo and behold my 11 yr old daughter disappeared with it the second she spotted it in my office! Bottomline: we both loved the mix of stories exploring girls and their periods. I would also like to add that I was most impressed with the variety of tales. Sure, some had the sheen of "embarrassing moments revealed," but others approached this life-changing-for-girls event from slanted angles that revealed many rich layers of what menstruation can mean in a girl's life.

I got this book for one of the young ladies in my life, but I doubt she'll enjoy it more than I did. Much more than a collection of stories about impending womanhood, this is a collection of wonderful fiction, spun across the globe through India, Puerto Rico, dining room tables in America, horsetrails in the West... Some of the best youn adult writers (writers period) contributed to this and I'm glad to have found it. I'm sad to find only one review here. I hope parents, teachers and librarians will discover this book and give it the feedback it deserves.

As a mom, a volunteer who mentors girls of all ages and especially as a librarian, I have been looking for a book like this for some time. More often then not, the questions I hear are related to fear and embarrassment, issues that aren't often addressed in titles that are available in libraries and book stores. There are plenty of books on the market to describe the mechanics of menstruation but very few that openly invite conversation about the emotional side. Girls will undoubtably find at least one story they can relate to. These fictional stories are written by authors that the girls are already familiar with and anxious to read again. I'm recommending 'Period Pieces' to parents of both boys and girls. My only caution would be to evaluate the maturity of the reader before you just hand it over. It's definitely a book for everyone to read, but I would recommend parents read it too. You'll be better prepared when the questions come.

I read a copy of this book at my friends house one evening. I enjoyed it so much and know my daughter will too. I am a teacher and shared with the girls in my class a chapter from this book. All wanted to know where to get a copy of this book. I am ordering another copy just to have to share with others.
