Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Della A. Yannuzzi
Author Jones has written a self-help book about looking great. She lists "Ten Things" young people need to know about looking great. Some chapters include taking care of your hair, using makeup, skincare, exercise, and looking great from the inside out. One chapter deals with clothes and how to wear things that flatter a young girl's body shape. Having good hair means brushing regularly, shampooing as much as needed, and not using too much hair drying heat. Brushing teeth, staying away from soda and coffee that stain teeth, and using whitening products will help a great smile. Exercising and eating healthy foods like vegetables and fruits will give a healthy look. Also included is a list about how to take care of your nails. Applying light makeup and washing your face will improve appearances by highlighting features and keeping your skin clean and fresh looking. The author stresses that looking good also means getting enough sleep, eating properly, drinking lots of water, and exercising. A beauty quiz at the back of the book helps the reader to define and develop the reader's own beauty style. A glossary, further reading, and Internet sites are included. This is a good common sense book for girls wanting to look and feel the best they can. Reviewer: Della A. Yannuzzi
