In brief: Puberty is normal.
Every girl's body changes when she transforms for a girl to a woman.
Changes are normal and will involve increase in body hair, breast enlargement, and monthly vaginal bleeding. It is very important to emphasize that at this time, she is capable of becoming pregnant-if you aren't comfortable talking with her about this, then refer to a pediatrician or gynecologist who can. Education=better health.

In brief: With a happy smile!
Children are very perceptive.
If a parent seems nervous, worried, upset, or avoids talking, then a child may think puberty is a bad thing, that there's something wrong about puberty, or there's something wrong with her own body. A couple of popular books for children and their parents are "sex, puberty, and all that stuff" by bailey, and "what's happening to my body? Book for girls" by madaras.
