I often agree to doing reviews for books I think my children would like. So, when the opportunity arose to review Hello Stars, I immediately thought of my daughter. Truth be told, once I started reading the book, I found myself drawn into the book---me, an adult! Even though the audience is clearly young girls (likely tweens), I was personally blessed by this book.

I recently had the privilege of reviewing an absolutely wonderful devotional for girls called Brave Girls: Beautiful You. Although this was my first time reading anything from the Brave Girls series, I'm certain it won't be my last. Devotions in this little gem of a book are told from the point of view of one of three different girls: Gracie, Hope, and Glory.

I am always looking for a good devotional for my children. Rick Warren's The Purpose Driven Life Devotional for Kids definitely fits the bill. This 365 entry devotional is a perfect way to start out the New Year with the kids. The layout is aesthetically pleasing because it stays simple--without the busyness often found in children's books.

Initial Thoughts: I decided to review the NKJV FaithGirlz Bible because I wanted to see if it was something young girls like my daughter might like. Not only do I think that they would like it, but I also personally enjoyed looking through this Bible. The colorful "girly" pages with occasional splashes of pretty light pink, purple, or fuchsia were fun.

Nature Girl: A Guide to Caring for God's Creation by Karen Whiting and Rebecca White is a great resource for girls who are interested in knowing how to take care of various aspects of God's creation. The beginning of the book states that "Going green is about making God's earth a healthy place to live" (9). I like the authors' practical advice that "It's really just about making smart choices" (9).
