For many years, Christiane Northrup M.D. has taught women about health, wellness and the miracle of their bodies. Known for her book Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom, she has recently published her first children’s book. In her new book, Beautiful Girl She sends a message to young girls and shares her wisdom of the female body. Her way of presenting is relatable to a young girl and teaches her to love and accept the beautiful gifts her body gives her each month. The poetic and creative nature of the book captures the reader in a way in which internalizes the wisdom of the body in childhood as to set the stage for adulthood . This book leaves young girls feeling positive about their bodies rather than beating them up and not accepting its sacred wisdom.
I suggest this book be read to young girls at least 8 yrs old. Parents, teachers, therapists, counselors etc.. this is a great resource to bring into your existing work.
You have a special strength inside of you. It is there to help with all of the important things you will need to do in your life. Know that you are like a magnificent tree-your roots hold strong in any weather, and your branches and leaves are a shelter for those you love.
