American Girl has partnered again with pediatrician and New York Times bestselling author, Dr., on a new go-to guide for moms and daughters. The new three-book set, The Care & Keeping of Us: A Sharing Collection for Girls and Their Moms, provides the tools to get the conversation going on topics most top-of-mind for growing girls’from body basics, hygiene, and healthy habits to friends, social media, clothing, and more. The new advice series is a follow-up to Natterson’s 2013 American Girl bestseller The Care & Keeping of You 2: The Body Book for Older Girls, which has sold over 400,000 copies to date.
“I’m thrilled to build on the original Care & Keeping of You Advice series with an all-new set of books that focuses on helping girls and their parents start to talk about the issues surrounding puberty that can often be difficult to address,” says Dr. Natterson. “It is my deep hope that families will use the advice in these books to start meaningful and ongoing conversations about everything from physical changes to friends, sleep and safety.”
The collection, featuring two books’one for tween girls, one for moms’is filled with talking tips, conversation starters, and how-to-say-it scripts on a range of issues adolescent girls face growing up. The books are designed to inspire meaningful discussions and help build close, trusting relationships at a time when girls need it most. The Care & Keeping of Us also includes a hardbound keepsake journal filled with sharing tips and activities, as well as simple prompts to keep the dialogue open. The journal also has space for photos and mementos, and two bookmarks to mark important pages the other reader needs to see.
