Vaginas and Periods 101: A Pop-Up Book
Vaginas and Periods 101: A Pop-Up Book is a fun and creative way to learn more about... vaginas and periods! The book uses pop-ups to explain how the female reproductive system works, colorful graphics to normalize anatomy aesthetics and discharge, and describes various menstrual product options. The book is primarily aimed at girls ages 9-12, although we would love to get it into the hands of anyone who has menstruated because this book is both fun, novel, and informative.
As licensed mental health therapists and sex educators, we teach a lot of young people and we saw a need to normalize menstruation and could't believe this book didn't already exist! We want young people to feel comfortable in their bodies throughout puberty and into adulthood. Plus, we know not only girls/women menstruate so we've been very intentional to not use pronouns in the book and to include non-binary characters.
You can pre-order a copy of the book on Indiegogo (along with other goodies like pins by our artist Sara M. Lyons).
