A Note from the Publisher Mar 25, 2010
The EWTN television series on the All Things Girl books is currently airing from March through April. We've had some incredibly wonderful responses to the books and the series and wanted to answer a few questions here--where we know many people will purchase the books. First, the books are geared towards girls aged 9 through 12 or 13 depending on the maturity level of the girl; however, the book" All Things Girl: Truth for Teens" is probably most suited for girls that are 13 and older--say from 8th grade through high school. "Truth for Teens" is one large book and takes the foundational information from the 5 tween books and goes into greater detail. Additionally, "Truth for Teens" has sections not included in the tween book like gardening and financial responsibility. The overall intent of the tween books is to encourage girls to develop a prayer life, recognize how saints are part and parcel of the Faith and excellent role models, what inherent dignity is and why every single person has it, how does being a daughter of the King affect all aspects of life--thus the different titles and focuses. The books have some fun quizzes, important examination of conscience questions, and each has a media component written by Teresa Tomeo. Overall the books are meant to inspire and educate in an age-appropriate way and can be used as engaging tools in keeping with Pope Benedict's statement that parents are to be the main teachers of Faith to their children. NOTE: The boy's book is called "All Things Guy: A Guide to Becoming a Man that Matters" and was recently featured in The Catalyst with a recommendation from Mr. William Donahue, President of the Catholic League.

Excellent choice of books for parents and their tweens and teens Mar 2, 2010
These series of books are an excellent conversation piece for parents and their kids. They address many of the social issues young girls face today. It is tough being a parent, especially in today's society. Everyone one of us can use some tips and tools to help guide our girls.
One Good Book Leads to Another Feb 27, 2010
We came across the boys book "All Things Guy: A Guide to Becoming a Man that Matters" through William Donohue's magazine, "The Catalyst." That great write up led us to the boys book which in turn led us to this wonderful series for our girls! Although the boy's book is one larger book and is black and white, the girl's books are in a fun series with great color and graphics but with the same overall theme: It is fun and exciting and a blessing to be a Catholic kid! Each book in the girl's series has some of the same information but we figured that is because not everyone will buy all the books and the information is too important to be left out. For instance each of the first couple of pages talks about dignity of person and that each girl is a daughter of the King. Each book also has a saint and helps the girls learn how to have a rewarding prayer life from a very young age. To keep costs down we bought the series for our girls to share but then bought them each their own journal. The books are rotating around and each girl is busy writing in her journal and keeping track of her prayer life. We were quite excited to find out that these books are now a series on Catholic television (EWTN) and will all be watching with books in hand with great anticipation for some more fun and learning.

I would not recommend this series May 8, 2009
I had intended to use them with my 9 1/2 and 8 1/2 year old daughters. While I expected some of the material to be older, I figured it would be appropriate to speak of most of it early. I consider myself careful, but not overly-sheltering. The books start out with the same information printed on the first five to 10 pages...they mention that we are children of God, the girls are princesses, etc. Nice beginning...we were a little disappointed that they repeated so much..with so few pages, our expectation was new material.) To help you understand the series, the first book, Friends, Boys and Getting Along continues on to classify girls...no kidding...here is a list..."Snooty Susie, Loose Lipped Lisa, Jenedict Arnold, Cruel Kelly, Penny the Pouter, Jealous Josie, Oblivious Olivia, Studious Sarah, Cute Katie, Pompous Polly, Emo Emily, Boyish Brenda". It goes on to show that each type of girl has redeeming qualities, but I can see where it might make some girls question if they are a little "less cool" because they don't spend a fortune on their clothes. Further, a couple of these classifications describe many normal, sweet girls and could actually cause them to wonder if other girls don't like them. I felt that I could talk through all of that with the kids, so I let that go. The message was still okay. The section in that book on boys was extremely brief, and really did not offer much wisdom or advice. I don't believe it should have been listed in the title.
The part of the series that made me jump out of my skin, was the saint story in the Modern and Modest book. The story talks about how Maria Goretti lost her dad, and how she, her mother and her siblings moved in with another family. It says that a 20 year old man in the house repeatedly tried to molest the preteen Maria. It does show that she refused, but it insinuates that she put up with his sexual molestation attempts to make things easier for her mom....I gathered from the story that she didn't tell her mom, and the story made that seem like a heroic sacrifice. I didn't think this was a helpful message for any young lady. (While I know we could look for other material about this saint, this story is a stand-alone when your daughter tries to read it in this book.) Anyway, the story later described in amazingly graphic detail how he tried to rape her. It described the attempted rape and murder so well, that I could actually picture it. I am sure that there is a lot of good in these books, but for me, there WAS NOT a lot of new and helpful information...there was just a lot to explain.
All things girl. Apr 27, 2009
This is a very good book that is geared toward younger girls. My girls are High School age and it was a little to young for them. I would suggest it for upper elementary and middle school age. It still is a very good book.
