is written particularly for girls ages eight to twelve. When I shared the book with two ten-year-old girls at my church, they pointed out many things they would like to try. For example, the girls liked the suggestions for making gifts, and the friendship box especially appealed to them. It involves wrapping a shoe box, the lid wrapped separately. Then a small present (like a pack of gum) is placed in the box, and the entire thing is given to a friend. She keeps the gift, and then places another gift inside and gives it back to you the next month. The girls I spoke with decided to start this project between the two of them.

makes a wonderful gift for any young girl on your shopping list. The activities are tons of fun and should keep a person entertained for hours. The ideas are fresh, not the same old
stuff to do
, with appeal to a wide range of girls.
