Ocieanna5 Stars Out Of 5A fabutastic book!October 31, 2013OcieannaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Hi! I'm Ocieanna Fleiss. This review was written by my daughter Gabrielle. She loved the book!
With its stories, crafts, quizzes, and more, The Girl's Guide to your Dream Room will tell you how to completely "fabulize" your room (I made up that word). It will encourage you to feel good about yourself and the space around you.
The stories in each chapter have a theme. Whether its cleaning, sharing, or enjoying your room more, they each bring you one step closer to a better room, and a better, more "fabutastic" you. ( I made up that word too.)
I especially enjoyed the crafts. They're fun, easy, and bring out a creative part in me that I never knew before. When looking for a way to glam up my room, I'll be checking out this books' artsy activities like the flower sun catchers, fun decorative mirrors, bed canopies, and more.
The quizzes are some of my favorite things about The Girl's Guide to Your Dream Room. The author asks questions like, "What's your style?" and "What's your bedroom style?" These are fun because they helped me understand whether I was chic and classy, natural and sporty, or even eclectic and funky. I think I'm eclectic and funky.
I also enjoyed the spiritual value of the book with its prayers, Bible verses, and letters to God. It helped me understand that God loves me and wants my room to be a place of peace. The author also challenged me to be humble and think of others first, to shine His light to my friends, and that being organized and respecting the space He gave me glorifies Him.
So with this book to help me, I can glorify God in a "fabulizing" way. (Yeah, I made up that word too!)
I highly recommend this book and hope you check it out!
BookLoverKarenOregonAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5My 11-year-old's new favorite!October 11, 2013BookLoverKarenOregonAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I've been trying to get my 11-year-old daughter to sort through her clutter for years. One day after reading The Girl's Guide to your Dream Room, she's doing it on her own. She can't wait to finish so she can replace the Beatrix Potter curtains and pale pink decor with things more suitable for a pre-teen. Once I retrieved the book from my daughter's clutches, I read through it myself. Filled with short stories, quizzes, simple crafts, and cute drawings, I can see why this book appeals to her so much. Primarily about decorating, Sherry Kyle also uses the stories to teach important heart lessons and share Biblical truth. It reads much like the popular American Girls Guides, but with an added element of faith. I adore this book... almost as much as my daughter does! Now, if you'll excuse me... it's time to get to work.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book for free from Legacy Press Kids for the purpose of review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
