Spotlight customer reviews:
Customer Rating: Summary: (Mostly) practical guide for girls Comment: I liked this one better than the boys' version because, for the most part, the tips in this book were more applicable to normal life. With the exception of surviving an alien invasion or a zombie attack.
Some of my favorites: keeping your shoes smalling fresh (I'll have to try this with my derby pads and skates), dealing with bullies, traveling light, studying for exams, eating with chopsticks, and basic ballet positions. Customer Rating: Summary: Great book! Comment: Great buy, my 10 year old daughter loves it, my son likes to read it, it's just a fun book all around! Customer Rating: Summary: Better title? Comment: A better title for this book would be
A girls guide on how to be an obnoxious, ignorant, stuck up brat.
Not only are today's younger girls becoming more superficial, misinformed, ignorant, and mindless, this book only reinforces it by providing a form of authority to support lousy behavior.
I read through this book and every page boggled my mind at how anyone would want their young daughters to read this kind of garbage.
Yes, this book is full of misinformation (the section on animals), tells girls to behave like stuck up snobs (celebrity page), and promotes irritating and obnoxious behavior (how to annoy people). So what does a girl gain from reading this? She doesn't become more educated, Doesn't become more informed, doesn't become smarter, doesn't get to think about anything, doesn't become better at anything.
Looks like anyone with any kind of idea can publish any lousy book nowadays and make money by taking advantage of people's apathy about everything.
Customer Rating: Summary: Amazon asked me to review this. Comment: The book was purchased for a 12 year old's birthday. The binding was amazing for this type of product: foil embossing, and counter-sunk as well. The tweener loved it and spent a lot of time with her mother going through it. I intend on looking into the rest of the series next year. Can you get much better than that? Customer Rating: Summary: Daring! Comment: I've been a daring girl since I was born. This book really moved me along. The ideas contained within are creative and fun for every girl! This book is for girls, everyone else should read the Adventures With Boys series, I did!
