This could be used for the early teens- so doublelist it for 12-15 as a simple, straightforward account of the story of human birth, adolescence and maturity. Adapted from the film Human Growth, that has been shown to hundreds of school and parent groups the country over, the book retains the same direct, unemotional approach that made the film an outstanding success with both young people and adults. Essential facts are explained with a minimum of medical terms. The illustrations are admirably clear without being so literal as to shock an oversensitive adolescent. The question and answer sections round out the subject in an informal way. Definitely recommended.
