When I was approaching the age of menstruation, I remember being confused and frightened by what I read in books and pamphlets provided by school. They pictured women wearing these wonky belts to hold pads in place. Tampons scared me. Toxic Shock Syndrome!
When I learned to sew in high school, I started sewing my own pads from scraps of fabric. These pads had to be safety pinned into place, and they often did not work well or shifted around. Fortunately, there are reusable, cloth pads now on the market for women and girls.

One of the best things about using reusable pads is that once you have enough, you never run out. I hate having to make a special trip to the store because it is that time of month.
Lunapads are essential when backpacking too!
If you are looking for a good resource to teach your young girl about her body, the best book is still the old standby Our Bodies, Ourselves: A New Edition for a New Era. We’ve had many conversations in our family, but I think having a resource to refer to is also essential.
