Review: The Beauty Book by Nancy Rue


SUMMARY FROM NETGALLEY.COM:

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 TAKE:

There are a lot of books that offer beauty advice to young girls, but I don't think any of them are like this.

The Beauty Book is sort of a companion book to the Here's Lily book and series. It contains tips and tricks and step-by-step guides to enhancing your God-given looks. There are also activities, like fill-in-the-blanks, and Bible verses and reflections that explain how each lesson relates to God. If you've read Here's Lily, you'll be familiar with the girls in the Girlz Want to Know sections.

This is a useful guide for young girls who are just learning to love their body and make themselves prettier.

Thanks to NetGalley and Tommy Nelson for the e-ARC. Publication date for The Beauty Book is on May 1, 2012.

THE GOOD:
  1. It has step-by-step guides.
  2. Moms will find this a great help when teaching beauty and hygiene to their daughters.
  3. It's easy for young girls to understand.
THE BAD:
  1. Some of the Bible verses does not fit the topic exactly so they seem just a tiny bit forced.
FAVORITE QUOTE/S:

Does that mean somebody who was beautiful forty, fifty or four hundred years ago wouldn't be beautiful today? How much sense does that make?
READ IT IF:
  1. You have a daughter.
  2. You are trying to balance the idea of being pretty and not being vain.
  3. You like books that apply Bible verses to modern life.
