Secret Keeper Girl Series
Have you heard of the Secret Keeper Girl? I had not until recently because my daughter is just five. I received the first book in a new series by Dannah Gresh called Danika's Totally Terrible Toss. It is about a 12 year old girl who has everything she could possibly want including popularity. As the pressure to fake popularity builds Danika ends up getting in trouble. But when she gets in major trouble for accidentally throwing something at a lunch lady, she meets 3 amazing friends, Kate Toni, and Yuzi, who help her see it’s not all about what she has, but who she is. This is a great story to help teach your tween what true friendship is about.
My favorite part if the while book is a section at the end called Girl Gab which gives girls and their moms and gab about the book and what they have learned. It gives moms a great chance to talk about the Bible and how the story can relate to their daughters life. I can't wait until my daughter is old enough to read these with her.
You can also visit the Secret Keeper Girl website for more great activities for moms and daughters. If you have a tween you will definitely want to check it out.
