"A beautiful girl has skin that is fair.
Whatever she's blessed with she wants to share.
She is a giver of gifts; has others on her mind.
She likes to do things that are thoughtful and kind."
The first line of every page describes a physical attribute of the girl in the picture on that page. Besides the fair skinned girl, there is a dark skinned girl, a girl with skin like desert sands, girls with just about every hair color and style, a girl with freckles, tall and petite girls, an even a girl with a scarf on her head with apparently no hair at all. I'm pointing this out because I noticed in a few negative reviews that some girls are excluded - there are no pudgy girls or painfully shy girls, and apparently a few people have taken offense to that.
But the important thing is that after that first descriptive line, there are several lines about beautiful girls being kind, loving, and a whole variety of various attributes about each of the girls. The key is at the end of the book, when the author states,
"A beautiful girl is any girl at all.
It's not only external it's every girl's call.
If you are a girl you are beautiful too.
Bring beauty to the world by just being you!"
... and it continues along like that about all girls being precious and loved by God.
It doesn't really matter if a girl doesn't perfectly match the description on any particular page. Perhaps a nice springboard from this book would be for your girl to draw a followup page of herself, and with her parent's (or teacher's) help, describe herself and what makes her special. Just off the top of my head, something like this:
A beautiful girl is soft and round
She seldom ever makes a sound
She likes to draw and paint pictures too
Bringing each day something brand new.
(My apologies to the author for copying her ideas.) Anyway, it doesn't have to rhyme. Just something for your special girl to personalize the beautiful message of this book. I think it's important to focus on the message of this book rather than on the specific details on any one page. This is a wonderful, life-affirming book for girls, something that is missing all to often in today's society. (I believe there is a similar type of book for boys, but I haven't read it yet.) Bravo to the author for promoting children's self-esteem. It's too often overlooked.
We would recommend this book to children around ages 3-5.
