The girl who became a moon
In many traditions, Menarche is considered a rite of passage, the moment when a girl becomes a woman. This book, “The Girl Who Became Moon,” comes to tell us ancestral wisdom – ancient memories, long forgotten and silenced – from a time when we felt the honor, power and pride of inhabiting a female body. .
It is a children's and adolescent book about a girl's first menstruation, but it offers wisdom for all bodies: those who are close to that moment, those who have just gone through it or already did it a long time ago, those who want to understand more about the universe of cyclicity from a language adapted to all audiences 🩸.
This book is written by Morena Cardoso and illustrated by Julia Vargas. Originally in Portuguese, we now also have it available in Spanish, Basque and English.
