First Moon: Celebration and Support for a Girl’s Growing-Up Journey
by Maureen Theresa Smith —
Nothing rocks a girl’s world as much as her first period.
Designed to support girls before and during their first year of menstruation, this unique package offers: an informative and fun 160-page guidebook, companion journal, a 13-month flow chart calendar, three sheets of colorful stickers and a reusable keepsake box — everything needed for a fun first moon celebration.
With facts, safety tips, recipes, crafts, meditations and inspirational stories, this kit offers guidance for navigating change with grace.
Emphasizing the empowering connection between a young woman, her community and our natural world, it can boost a girl’s creativity, confidence and body awareness and put a positive spin on making the change from girl to young woman.
