Customer Rating: Summary: A good book to get in a girl's good books! Comment: The 8th birthday of my overseas friend's daughter was approaching, so I was facing the ordeal of finding an appropriate (and sendable) gift for a young girl in a different country, hardly having knowledge of current US children's books (nor of children in general, as a matter of fact). I started browsing Amazon and bumped into this book (don't ask me how), and based on the reviews I decided to go for it.
This is what her mom & my friend, wrote to me after its arrival:
"She LOVES the book. It's funny because she's a really good reader, but she would still rather have me read chapters to her at night instead of reading silently on her own... but this book is a big exception. It came in the mail on Saturday, and she has spent every night since then (except last night, when she was too partied out to do anything but fall asleep) sitting up in her bed reading like crazy. You picked the exact perfect thing for her (even though it's hard for me to believe that she's already old enough for that sort of thing-- how did this happen?)."
I don't know what EXACTLY is written in this book, but I can tell you, I am really tempted to get a copy myself now!
Customer Rating: Summary: A great holiday gift Comment: I got this book for my 12 year old daughter for Christmas. She hasn't put it down since the day she got it. I am getting lots of fun questions like "Do we have any henna powder?", which makes me laugh (who on earth has henna powder handy).
There are lots of laughs, and good suggestions for girls this age. I highly recommend the book. Customer Rating: Summary: 10 year old niece loved this!!! Comment: Wasn't sure what to buy for my niece but this was a big hit. With all the new Christmas stuff she kept going back to look through this book. Customer Rating: Summary: This is an AWESOME book! Comment: The Big Book of Girl Stuff by Bart King is an excellent book for girls ages 8 to 15. It is a fabulous book. It offers great tips on things such as friendship, babysitting, boys and more! It teaches girls to be creative. (A popular sequel to the book is The Big Book of Boy Stuff.) But sorry boys, we are not reviewing the book for YOU! Bart King offers great advice as well as that little touch of humor that makes a book a wonderful experience to read. I loved this book, me having read it at least 3 times! This book is a great source for girls. From changing diapers to your first crush, this book won't let you down! Great present for Christmas also!
By Isabel, age 9 NY, NY. Customer Rating: Summary: So HAPPY with my order. GREAT BOOK!!!!! Comment: I bought this book for myself and for some of my friends birthdays. They love it and so do I. This book has a reversible cover that says "compisition notebook" and if you take the cover off, the cover is leather and says "Chemistry" on it. The Big Book of Girl Stuff has funny jokes, party ideas, information, ideas for any day, manners, lots of good advice, and much more for preteen and teenage girls. I laugh out loud every time I read this. My book came on time and is so funny!!! I recommend this for any preteen or teenage girl.If you are looking for the perfect gift, this is what you want to get. I thought some of the topics could have a little bit more details but other than that....GREAT BOOK!
