Children’s Book Duo Giveaway- Lily Series

What would you like to be when you grow up?

I have to admit that with my children, from my almost-11 year old down, this question brings about a conversation of 30 different careers, all making a million dollars and giving it away to missions.

And that really is no different from the ideas I had as a child. How about you?

Lily Robbins, MD is the second in the Lily series.  My daughter LOVED the first in the series and she could hardly wait for this book to arrive.  Lily, the character in this series, is easy to relate to and the cute story line assists tweens in dealing with issues they often face.

The Body Book is a great little  nonfiction book to accompany Lily Robbins, MD. This  book has all the “girl stuff” young girls have been dying to know about. With encouraging words to embrace the unique body God has given to you, the emphasis of this book is trusting God through the transition of a changing body.

This book is labelled as being designed for ages 7-11.  On the back cover, the term “getting her period” is used.  Frankly, I think age 7 is far too young to introduce this concept and terminology. And really, I think age 8 is even a bit early.  Maybe I’m living in the dark ages.  But however you feel as  a parent about this concept, I wanted you to know before you enter to win these two books for your daughter or granddaughter.  You can always save it for when the appropriate time to discuss the concept arrives. Regardless of this point, your tween will LOVE the storyline of Lily Robbins, MD and The Body Book would be a fabulous resource for you to parent through. To enter, follow the rafflecopter.

    These books look great for my now teenager. She is of a younger mindset, so it is perfect. As for mentioning the monthly at an early age, I believe 10 should be the youngest to start hearing it.

    How adorable!! I’d love to win something like this to gift to one of my best friend’s daughter. My daughter is older so she is past this book. :-(

    I did not grow up in a Christan home. When I was a child I wanted to be a lawyer. I still love all the buildings and the feel of it all. But now that Jesus is Lord of my life, I love the scripture that is etched into so many of our government/courthouse buildings. =) I would love to win this ~ a friend was just asking me for books to help talk to her daughter about her body. God Bless!

    I always knew I wanted to be a social worker. Back in the day I used to say psychologist until I found out about social work!

    I have 3girls! My 11 year old is at a perfect age for these books! We have the beauty book and love it!!!

    I wanted to be a welder. I use to slide under our kitchen table and pretend I was welding. Glad I grew up to be a stay-at-home mom instead!

    I wanted to be a jockey, nurse in Africa or the military, detective, airline stewardess, seamstress, FBI. Basically, if you could be it, I wanted to.

    Thanks for such wonderful giveaways! I wanted to be a nurse when I grew up. Never happened unless you call taking care of sick husband and kid nursing – – that’s as much as I do.

    My answer was always changing, from writer to singer to actor to archaeologist to detective, and so on and so forth.
