A Lesson in Inner Beauty Princesses Emma and Abby are playing with friends. But Emma is more concerned with how she looks than having fun! Will she learn what is more important?
Mona Hodgson is the author of nearly 30 children's books and also writes 19th century historical fiction. In addition to writing and speaking, Mona likes to read mysteries and love stories, hike Arizona, travel to Africa, play table games, and play Wii Tennis. She lives in central Arizona where she spies roadrunners, quail, cottontail rabbits, and even an occasional skunk in her yard.
Suddenly, a muddy soccer ball hits Emma and stains her fancy pink dress. She screams at the visiting little girl who kicked the ball, and the little girl cries. Emma realizes she has hurt the girl's feelings, so she apologizes and then joins in with the three other girls in playing games. At the end of the day, they are all friends who will enjoy getting together on some other day.
The book begins by quoting I Samuel 16:7, "People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart." The pastel colors of the artwork by Red Hansen are not bold, but the scenes reflect natural activities of young girls at play. The book teaches a good lesson about genuine beauty. Children will not have trouble understanding the message of the story. - Dr. Dennis E. Hensley, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
