Reviews - What do customers think about Body Talk (Faithgirlz!)?
Great book for my 10-year old Sep 10, 2008
This book is perfect for my just turned 10-year-old. When I gave it to her she quickly went off and read most of it in a couple of days. She could really relate to the girls in the book and their changing bodies. I really appreciate Nancy Rue's Christian perspective as it relates to girl's bodies and God's plan. Also there is no explicit talk about sex in this book which is exactly what I wanted. Just plain talk about boys, bras and periods. I highly recommend this book. My daughter really enjoyed it and it opened up good discussion between us and answered a lot of questions I think she was a little too embarrassed to ask me directly
CHEAP PAPER Dec 26, 2007
I bought this volume along with the other three in this series for Christmas gifts--4 for 3 promotion. I received them a couple of days prior to Christmas and didn't have time to shop for replacement gifts.
I have been a fan of Nancy Rue books for teen girls so thought these would make nice gifts for my neices. This is the only reason I purchased these specific titles.
The covers were inviting, but the paper inside the covers was CHEAP and uninviting. For a retail price of $7.99 each for 132 pages, I expected much higher quality paper. Shame on the publisher!
I did not read these volumes, so I can't comment on the content. I would NOT have purchased any of the books in this set had I seen them first at a bookstore. These books do not invite a reader in. The paper quality makes them look like very "cheap" gifts--think dollar store books.
I give this book two stars only because Nancy Rue is the author.
Highly Recommended Sep 22, 2007
It is a truth that we would like to keep our little girls just that, little. However time has a way of moving on and before you know it, girls become women, almost overnight. As a mom and a grandma, a friend and a mentor of many young girls, and of course remembering my own maturing days, the transition is not always an easy one. Questions are asked, or thought and never voiced. Concerns may way become excessive fears if not confronted, as young girls take their journey into their role as a woman. In this outstanding book by Nancy Rue girls will find a down-to-earth, truthful look at just what is happening to their bodies and why. Discussions are made and explained about the visit of their 'monthly,' to 'smelly feet,' and along with all the why's and how's. However, don't think this is a text book manual because it is far from that. No, this is written on a one to one, open your heart, ask a question, and just be real manner. Inside the pages of this work, young girls will learn to understand what is going on in their bodies and why. They will be able to associate with the different emotions they are feeling and know that it is normal to feel that way. I definitely will give each of my granddaughters a copy of this book. It is definitely a jewel that every woman to be will cherish. Very, very highly recommended.
