Review of Here's Lilly & The Beauty Book by Nancy Rue

Here are Two great books from The Lilly Series by author Nancy Rue

Here's Lilly:

Grow with the spirited, sometimes awkward, but always charming Lily as she learns what real beauty is.

In this fun, entertaining story, readers meet awkward sixth grader Lily Robbins who, after receiving a compliment about her looks from a woman in the modeling business, becomes obsessed with her appearance and with becoming a model. As she sets her sights on winning the model search fashion show, she exchanges her rock and feather collection for lip gloss, fashion magazines, and a private “club” with her closest friends. But when the unthinkable happens the night before the fashion show, Lily learns a valuable lesson about real beauty.

This best-selling, biblically based fiction series for girls—with a fresh new look and updated content—addresses social issues and coming-of-age topics, all with the spunk and humor of Lily Robbins as she fumbles her way through unfamiliar territory. As readers come to love Lily and her stories, they’ll also benefit from the companion nonfiction books that will help them through their own growing pains.



My Review:
Here's Lilly by Nancy Rue is a fun and entertaining book for young girls.  As the main character, Lilly
learns difficult life lessons, she also sees that turning to God for guidance and confidence will help her regain her focus on who's opinion is really the most important.  As with most pre-teen girls, Lilly struggles with self-confidence, beauty, social issues, peer pressure and the struggle to balance friends, family and faith.  In this book, and the other books in the Lilly Series, she learns that God's opinion is best.  And although difficult at time, Lilly learns that listening the His instruction, and that of her parents, is what matters most.

I found throughout this book, that there are a lot of great lessons for young girls to learn in Here's Lilly by Nancy Rue.  I think this book is a great addition to any young girl's library and will help them see themselves through God's eyes.  It is definitely a book I plan to have my own daughters read.


The Beauty Book:

What's the main obstacle to beauty girls face today? Zits? Flat hair? How to put on make-up? No, it's how they see... themselves! 

Sure, this book is full of all kinds of tips on how to take care of your skin and hair, how to pick out clothes, do your nails, and all around look your best. But its most important secret is how to know you're beautiful, by knowing yourself as God's beautiful creation. 

Full of the quizzes, activities, and facts all girls love and need to know, this book won't make you beautiful--it will show you how beautiful you already are! (This is the companion book to Here's Lily!)




My Review:
After reading Here's Lilly by Nancy Rue, I can honestly say that The Beauty Book by Nancy Rue is a great companion book.  The book is full of fun and thoughtful quizzes, activities, Q & A and checklists give great advice, and entertaining facts for girls of all ages.  There are great ways to take care of your skin and hair, to what to name your fingers and toes.  This book is full of fun and entertaining ways for girls to keep themselves healthy, while encouraging them to look and be their best. This is a great book for girls who love the Lilly Series by Nancy Rue
