In a society so focused on the idea that beauty matters, it can be difficult for young girls to figure out what ‘true’ beauty is all about. Well, in this unique and creative new book just for girls ages 8-12, Nancy Rue answers common questions girls ask in this often-curious stage in their lives. Filled with fun magazine-type quizzes and imaginative activities, The Beauty Book offers cool information about everything from great hair to tattoos, plus much more. But most important, the message that God-confidence is beautiful is highlighted on each and every page.
I would highly recommend this book - even for girls older than 12 who may be "late bloomers". The author covers all kinds of topics - skin, hair, self-image, confidence, God's love for each of his individual children, etc. At the end of each chapter there is a self-quiz to help girls with understanding how they feel about themselves with each topic. The book is written to show that we are all different, we are are beautiful, we are all God's children. I think it is a great tool for helping girls feel better about themselves. The book is not too long and is a very quick read as well so girls who don't like to read won't feel overwhelmed. I give it a five out of five stars!
