These three books are all from the Christian Girl's Guide series. They are for ages 9-12, but girls a little younger or older may enjoy them too. And they are more fun when done with a sibling or friend.
You can read some reviews of them to the right side of this blog, but I'll tell you a little about them too.
The Christian Girl's Guide to Me: The Quiz Book is my newest book in this series. It has quizzes like Are You for Real, How Honest are You, Are You a Good Test Taker, How are Your Manners and What Kind of Smart are You. There are 22 quizzes in all. So you could take this book to school and do a quiz a day with a group of friends during lunch or break time. There are also stories, activities and crafts to do. Below are some random photos of the Jessica, Jasmine and Adam creating and testing out the crafts. If we can do them, any body can do them! Believe me! I am craft challenged, so I look for easy to make crafts that use simple supplies and are useful either for myself or for gifts.
The Christian Girl's Guide to the Bible goes through the Bible chronologically from Genesis to Revelation (although they changed my Revelation section and it's not a good representation of the book). If you aren't familiar with the Bible at all or maybe you just need a review of what's in the Bible, this book is for you. It teaches about the Bible through stories, crafts, activities, puzzles and basic information.
The Christian Girl's Guide to Being Your Best was the first book in the series. It has 11 tips for being your best: Use your talents, Do your best, Stand up for yourself and what's right, Set priorities, Walk with God, Cherish your family, Value your integrity, Be compassionate, Be content, Preserve, Guard your tongue. It's kind of a guide to life for preteen girls.
So when you're making your Christmas list, be sure to include these books. And don't forget a copy for your bff. Check your local Christian bookstore first, and if they can't order the books for you, they are available on amazon.com and christianbooks.com. You can get free postage for orders over $25 on amazon.
