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.
