There is one thing that puzzles Samira ... PERIODS! She has heard people talking about them, but has no idea what they are. With the help of this book and her family, she learns all about that time of the month!

This friendly and reassuring book about periods for young girls follows the story of Samira as she finds out from her mum and dad all about when a first period arrives. It clearly explains why girls have them, what happens in the body to make periods and what the first signs of getting a period are.

This book demystifies periods, eases worries and provides reassurance that periods are a healthy part of growing up.

The author, Rosie Kessous, works for Days for Girls (DfG) UK. DfG is an International Charity providing women's health education, alongside washable sanitary towels produced by volunteers in developed countries for those in need. Rosie's training as an Ambassador of Women's Health Educator and subsequent distribution of washable sanitary pads on a trip to Kenya inspired 'That Time of the Month'. Rosie realised the need for a comprehensive, accessible and engaging book for young girls about menstruation. Rosie is currently working to facilitate a curriculum to be taught in schools in the UK through Days for Girls.


Arianna Vettraino (Illustrator)
Arianna is an illustrator based in Edinburgh. She believes deeply in the powerful role children's books can play in helping to educate, inform, and inspire young people; and hopes to use her illustrations for this purpose. 'That Time of the Month' is her first children's book which she created whilst studying at university. After reaching out to the charity Days For Girls (UK), expressing her desire to create a book on periods, Arianna was put in contact with Rosie (the author), who shared the belief that a picture book aiming to demystify and encourage openness about periods was needed.
