I have great news for anyone who has a girl between 8 and 14 on their gift list this Christmas or Hannukah!
One of my favorite books to share is coming out with a followup for adolescent girls! It will be titled:
Operation Beautiful for Best Friends by Caitlin Boyle.
While it is not yet published, it is scheduled for release December 20, 2012 and I can barely wait! I have already pre-ordered one for each of the girls on my gift list! Consider it as a wonderful gift for a girl you know and care about.
Caitlyn Boyle has compiled the story of an amazing campaign to transform the way we look at ourselves using nothing more complicated than a simple post-it note. To get just a glimpse of this quiet revolution in the making---
Order the book online, or used, or through your local library for free. But check it out! Especially if you have daughters, but even if you don't. All children today are bombarded with images of what they "should" look like, be like, feel, think, etc. Reading [even browsing] this book will fill you with ideas for showing your children [and maybe anonymous people in your world] with more positive messages.
How long does it take to jot a post-it note? Try it.... we can change lives!
