A Time to Celebrate shows the menstrual cycle as a gift and a healthy function of the female body. It is a book and journal a mother, father, sister, aunt, grandmother, friend or mentor can give to a girl to celebrate her first menstrual period. This momentous time in her life should be recognized like all other occasions and her transition from girlhood to womanhood honored.
This book portrays a positive picture of menstruation which helps empower girls and teaches them to love, care for, and respect their body. The more a girl knows about her body, the more she will take control of it and make the right choices for herself.
Included in the book are charts for keeping track of her period and feelings, and a journal for writing her thoughts and creative expressions.
It is never too late to celebrate this time and make it a special rite of passage. Every girl should have a copy of this book even if she has already started her period.
