The Skin You�re In: Discovering True Beauty
Zonderkidz (April 9, 2010)
When my copy of� The Skin You're In arrived, I quickly read through it.� I was impressed with the way Nancy Rue handled issues of beauty, gently pointing girls to the true source of beauty inside, while still answering their questions about skin care, makeup, hair care, and fashion.�� She writes in a fresh way, directly to the pre-teen or young teen, without being condescending.
My 14 year old daughter and I had been discussing makeup and skin care a lot recently, so I handed it to her to read first.� It was next read by my 11 year old and 13 year old daughters, who more accurately represent its target audience.� We all enjoyed the book, and the conversations it sparked.�� It also reinforced the lessons I've tried to teach my daughters re: fashion, beauty, and God's Word.
***Special thanks to Pam Mettler of Zondervan for sending me a review copy.***
