Word! Hormone

Hormone

Say: hor-mone

Hormones are special chemicals your body makes to help it do certain things — like grow up! Hormones are very important when you start to go through puberty, which is when you begin growing and developing into an adult. During this time, you're loaded with hormones that tell your body that it's time to start changing. Ready, set, grow!
