101 Things Every Girl Should Know by Zonderkidz. This book is based on expert advice on stuff big and small from the Editors of Faithgirls and Girl's Life Magazine. I have to say that I wasn't sure if I was going to like the material in this book because I am very picky on what my girls are reading when it comes to advice for their lives. I was not disappointed with this book for a few reasons. The topics are very light and not heavy. They discuss simple things such as being nervous, taking better notes and how to handle a stressful week. It would have been nice if the book were more biblical based, it does not use versus from the Bible to make any points. Its a really simple, magazine style book with simple advice. The book has 102 tips for girls and I only didn't like a couple of them and it was mainly because of personal preference. I felt like the advice given was simple for example, being a good babysitter was mainly to pay attention to the children your watching instead of watching TV. I don't think that it was the best advice book out there but I think it was fun for my girls and was simple enough that I didn't have to worry about the world teaching my girls things I am not ready for them to learn yet.
I let my 14 year old daughter read through the book before I wrote my review and she thought the book was ok. She felt like a lot of the tips were not useful. She said she would give it only 3 stars out of 5. She did like the pictures and how the book was set up. She said it was fun to read even if the tips were not useful. It had recipes which she liked and some good tips such as how to stay safe.
I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
