The Beauty Book by Nancy Rue {Review}


Learn with Lily and her friends just what it means to be beautiful in God’s eyes—inside and out!

In a society so focused on the idea that external beauty reigns supreme, it can be difficult for young girls to figure out what “true” beauty is all about. This unique and creative book for girls ages 7–11 answers the common questions girls ask during this often confusing and overwhelming stage in their lives in an inviting and conversational manner.

Filled with fun quizzes, imaginative activities, and cool illustrations, The Beauty Book offers cool, relevant information about everything from great hair styles to tattoos, from skin care to clothes, and much more. Above all, the message that God-confidence is beautiful is highlighted on each and every page.

My Review:

I, felt that this is a great book for our pre-teen, or tween if you prefer, girls to read. It talks a lot about how to keep yourselves healthy and strong and basically about hygiene. Of course it also talks about beauty and the variety of beauty that God has created. It uses scripture and encourages girls to realize that just because they don’t look like the 5’10” straight figured models on the front of the magazines that it’s okay. You are still beautiful. God created you to be you and not someone else. It also teaches young girls that its still important to take care of themselves physically by eating healthy and exercising daily and keeping themselves clean. I think it was a pretty well rounded book. It advises girls to talk to their mom’s and to spend time talking to God.
