Children's LiteratureThis is a rare book that accepts girls' preoccupation with looking good—but not solely for the purpose of getting a date. In fact, the advice and comments from young girls themselves are all about friendship, being yourself, learning how to relax, establishing your own values: "Never feel you have to compromise your values for someone else." The opening pages offer photographs of all the ingredients, tools and containers, mostly available in drugstores or health food stores. There is lots of beeswax, baking soda, cornstarch, and scented oils, as well as reminders not to use almond oil if you have a nut allergy. There are easy instructions for making scented sachets, soaking bath salts, shower gel, body lotion, lip gloss, scented hair rinse, even labels and cards to give all these products as gifts. The book itself is a perfect gift and a good way for girls to focus positively on their changing bodies. 2004, Maple Tree Press, Ages 10 to 16.
