The Woman Doctor’s Diet For Teen-Age Girls Edelstein 1980 I could tell the year this was published just by looking at the cover and book design (one of the side effects of blogging about weeded books). I didn’t find anything
Venereal Diseases Morton 1966 Nowadays we call them sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). When I was a teen, it was called the clap or just the generic term VD. I have also heard it called a social disease or the drip.
The Over Weight Child Promoting Fitness and Self-Esteem Pitman and Kaufman 2000 I always cringe when I see books that are aimed at these types of problems. From the parent perspective, it is difficult to see a child struggle with
Girl’s Guide to Becoming A Teen: Getting Used to Life in Your Changing Body
American Medical Association
Submitter: Overall, it really isn’t a bad book. It has good information and covers the facts. However, no school in our area has a school nurse to go to as the book says to do. The biggest issue is the suggested websites to visit for more information. Okay, some are dead links, that happens.

American Medical Association printed and approved, but it is no longer on this library’s shelf.

Making Love During Pregnancy
Bing and Coleman
This book is the pregnancy version of the Joy of Sex originally published back in 1972. I couldn’t put in the illustrations since they were pretty graphic. In addition, they were penciled so light that you had to look carefully to see what was going on. (Maybe that was the point.)
I did include a couple of absolutely ridiculous charts that attempted to graph desire. Big surprise: some couples feel good about sex while pregnant and others not so much. I spent most of my pregnancies barfing, so feeling sexy wasn’t particularly front and center in my brain.
Asperger’s and girls : world-renowned experts join those with Asperger’s Syndrome to resolve issues that girls and women face every day! Attwood, Grandin, et. al. 2016 Submitter: I’m autistic, and this book (which I found in the public library where
