Great Book Selection for young readers from @Zonderkidz Reviews


Your Own Beautiful: Advice and Inspiration from Chelsea Crockett
by Chelsea Crockett

“The picture-obsessed, highly edited, perfection-driven culture we live in makes most of us feel like we never quite measure up. I’m so thankful for Chelsea’s young-but-strong voice calling girls to understand God’s bigger plan and purpose as you discover your own beautiful.” —Lysa TerKeurst, New York Times bestselling author and president of Proverbs 31 Ministries

Chelsea Crockett’s debut book, Your Own Beautiful, expands upon the beauty tips and inspirational advice featured on her popular YouTube channel. A life, faith, and beauty guide, Your Own Beautiful offers guidance on the big issues all young women face—from self-confidence and friendship to following your dreams.

With her signature grace and wit, Chelsea tackles tough questions through uplifting messages influenced by her faith and life experiences. You will be thrilled to find Chelsea’s trademark tips on makeup and style included throughout the book alongside full-color photos, how-tos, and more.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review- A great mash up of advice with style or style with advice and includes the thoughts as well as some how tos from this author. If you crave fashion and photos, this is going to be a great read.
God's Great Love for You
by Rick Warren, Chris Saunders

God’s Great Love

Created the entire universe

And everything in it

Including you.

God’s Great Love for You, written by #1 New York Times bestselling author and respected pastor Rick Warren, takes children on a whimsical and heartfelt journey that lets them know God’s love is with them wherever they go. With breathtaking illustrations by Chris Saunders, the simple yet poignant text comes alive as a child journeys to places far and near and discovers God’s great love is perfect, and everywhere, and will never end.

Cassandra's Review-  Very short and super easy for younger readers to enjoy either by themselves or with you reading out loud.   The illustrations to me are what make this book a story, because if it was just the wording it would be easily written on one page.  I do not really see any imagination by this author, but it is a clean and cute book for kids. 

9780310745532, 'Twas the Evening of Christmas, Glenys Nellist
'Twas The Evening Of Christmas
By Glenys Nellist , Elena Selivanova

’Twas the evening of Christmas, when all through the town,

Every inn was so crowded, no room could be found.

Tired Mary and Joseph, who went door to door,

At last found a place on a small stable floor.

For over 200 years, families have gathered on Christmas Eve to hear the much loved words of Dr. Clement C. Moore’s ’Twas the Night Before Christmas. This year, families can gather together to share the real Christmas story––the story of Jesus’ birth. ’Twas the Evening of Christmas echoes the familiar language and rhythm of Dr. Clements’ poetry, but instead of focusing on Santa, it focuses on the baby Jesus, who is, after all, the true hero of Christmas. All families will delight in this simple retelling of the most famous story ever told. With a cover that comes alive with foil and sculpted embossing, this book is sure to become a Christmas classic.

Cassandra's Review- Perfect for a new traditional read out loud book for your little ones to dream about.
