Vaginas and Period 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 and colorful graphics to normalize anatomy aesthetics and menstruation. It also describes various menstrual product options beyond just tampons and pads. We want all young people to feel comfortable in their bodies throughout puberty and into adulthood!
The book is primarily aimed at girls ages 8-12, 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 couldn'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.
