The world we live in compares us, but who are we supposed to follow?”
This book is written with 7-11 year old girls in mind, and is an encouraging reminder of where young girls (and moms) need to fix there eyes. I shared it with my (beyond her years) 11 year old girl and she really liked the tips for hair, skin and nails. I confess, I was a bit convicted about my own bad nail biting habit as I read and newly inspired to tackle quitting the nasty habit.
Nancy tackles beauty, personal hygiene and relevant tween topics with scripture, thoughts to ponder and self-reflection. Each section ends with a Journal Box called Lily Pad which poses a question and leaves room for writing (journal style with reflection).
Some are creative: “Describe your dream outfit…make it an outfit God would love!”
Some silly and fun: “If you had to name each of your fingers and toes, what would their names be?”
And others are a bit deeper.
Throughout the book, Nancy encourages going to God in prayer about so many of the challenges, changes and issues that come about in this age of becoming young women.
Interactive and scripture focused, this read makes for a wonderful addition to a young girl’s library.
Quizzes, Fill In’s and whimsical drawings make this appealing to a wider age range but don’t let the cuteness fool you; the information presented is both practical and useful.
