The Care & Keeping of You 1

The Care & Keeping of You 1

Welcome to the updated version of American Girl's best selling body book. The original TCKY came out in 1998 and currently has more than 4 million copies in print. Its success is credited to word-of-mouth: parents telling other parents, girls telling other girls, and doctors telling families in their practices. The updated version dives deeper into basic health – nutrition, exercise, sleep, hygiene, and screen time – giving tween girls age-appropriate and highly useful information. It also covers basic information about the body changes in puberty, and emphasizes the importance of talking to a parent when there are worries.
