Brave Girls: Beautiful You

Take a quiz to find out whether you have a servant's heart.  Do a crossword based on Psalm 139.  Write a few thoughts on the lines here and there.  It's definitely a reader-participation sort of devotional for your 8- to 13-year-old.  Gracie, Hope and Glory team up again, this time to help Christian girls learn true inner beauty secrets!

The book is super-cute and helps girls to consider how to cultivate a better relationship with God in their everyday lives.  I've got to be honest, though.  I found some of the "tips" to be annoying and impractical.  If your mother promised you some time at the pool, and she brought you home instead and said it was time to clean for her dinner party?   Most girls would not turn on music, do the dishes and chit-chat about who's going to show up... even in a devotional.  Sorry.  Too much.

The book will keep the reader's interest, though, and it's full of interesting little facts here and there and detail about Biblical events with which most girls may not be familiar.  I'd give it about three out of five stars.
