The Beauty Book by Nancy Rue is one of the books in the Lily Series. The book is geared towards young girls who are approaching puberty. It covers a lot of tips on how to survive at school while changes are happening. It relates all the issues to the bible in a section called “How is it a God thing?” and teaches girls to not compare themselves to others or put others down in order to make themselves feel better about themselves. To God, everyone is beautiful and that is what we should remember.
There are questions from girls which are answered honestly and openly and I really wish there was a book like this floating around when I was in elementary / middle school to answer these questions for me. (Many can be embarassing to ask your parents about – but the book has tips on how to approach your parents about shaving your legs, getting piercings, etc which would have been very helpful to myself and my peers at this stage in our life)
I definitely recommend this for girls 7-11 who are approaching puberty – there are quizzes and exercises that I think will help girls feel better about themselves even though they may be approaching an awkward stage in their life.
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.
