Children's LiteratureFor young girls, how you look is everything. Many girls express this concern with poorly applied lipstick and gallons of hairspray. The authors of this book encourage young women to look at beauty in a different way. They have gathered ideas from professional spas across the country and published them in a format perfect for teens and preteens. The book gives recipes for facemasks and body scrubs to make skin beautiful. Directions for hair and nail care are also included, as well as a small section about makeup and eyebrows. The book does not only concentrate on superficial beauty. There is a section about exercise and stress management. Everything can be done at home for very little money. Colorful and full of photos, the authors have made the book inviting and exciting for young readers. Rather than a child's version of a spa day, the treatments described are from professional spas, and the recipes and directions easy to read without being too kiddie. It is a great way to teach young girls that beauty does not begin at the cosmetic counter. 2005, Watson-Guptill, Ages 11 to 16.
