First penned decades ago, this classic primer for becoming ladylike has been gently edited and improved with today's conservative Christian girls in mind---though the elegant prose and timeless morals remain the same. Preteens will learn about friendship, modesty, honesty, ambition, and much more. This edition is widely embraced by the homeschool community! 206 pages, softcover from Great Expectations.
The book deals primarily with the Christian character development, moral virtues and manners of pre-teen and teenage girls. It is one of the best-selling titles in the homeschooling community.
Great book for youngin'
A must for ya'll who want to expose your youngin' to exceptional character building qualities, so she can grow up to be a"Real Dar'lin".

I am so pleased with this book. The condition I received it in was wonderful. But more than that, the "condition" of the subject was exactly what I was looking for. The description is quite accurate of what this book entails. I am in the midst of reading it with my 13 year old daughter. We have had such wonderful discussions. I wasn't given the "keys" to femininity and grace during that crucial time in my life but thankfully God blessed my ignorance. However, I want to impart all that He has for my daughter(s) so that they won't have to figure it out like I did. This book will be a tremendous asset.

This book has beautiful language that helps girls age gracefully into womanhood. It is best done with mother reading it to daughters so that explanations and discussions can take place. I highly recommend it.

This book is great is a great tool for parents
I was astonished to find a lot of answers to questions my six year old daughter asks in this book. I make the answers age appropriate, however, she truly gets a clear picture with the writers' stories and analogies. My little girl loves stories. I take daily lessons from each chapter I read and apply them to her character development. Girls are becoming more inquisitive at younger ages. With Scriptures from the Bible readily available, I can teach my girls how to carry themselves as ladies. How important it is not to follow the world's views on womanhood. It's never too early for parents with daughters to pick up this book and read it. It will prepare you for raising strong, thoughtful, courteous, and obedient girls.
