Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Barbara Wheatley
As an addition to the "My Tween Lifestyle Collection" series, this book tackles the subjects of makeup, hair, and overall beauty. Leading young girls through the daunting world of beauty with a sensible approach is Marlene Wallach, the president of Wilhelmina Kids & Teens talent and modeling agency. While a few photos of models are layered in makeup, if the reader will go beyond the photos and read the material, Wallach speaks of eating healthily, enhancing natural beauty, avoiding sun damage, and other healthy routines to look beautiful. Hints on managing different types of hair, using electric tools without damaging the hair, creating simple and easy hairdos, and concocting homemade hair treatments are highlights of the hair chapter. When discussing skin and makeup, Wallach stresses cleaning hands and face regularly, using moisturizers and sun protection, and feeding beauty with a healthy diet of fruits and vegetables and plenty of water. A section about caring for your feet, hands, and teeth provides practical advice describing how to make the rest of you beautiful. Fun Facts, quizzes, and Memos from Marlene are dotted throughout the text and give further information on many topics. Photos and simple, but colorful drawings enhance the text while the spiral binding makes this book a reference that readers will flip through frequently. Wallach ends the book on a good note: "If you've learned nothing else, I hope you've learned that beauty is only skin deep. If you haven't learned that, please go back to page one and start reading all over again!" Reviewer: Barbara Wheatley
School Library Journal
Gr 5–8—Wallach, the president of Wilhelmina Kids & Teens modeling agency, knows her audience and lends a credible feel to these books. Chapters in Beauty cover hair and makeup and skin care, and those in Look address such topics as finding colors that will look good and closet organization. Both titles include a "Just Ask Marlene" question-and-answer section and a final quiz. The art design is satisfactory even with the slightly stock feel of some photos, but there are several fill-in sections. Wallach's beauty and fashion tips skew heavily toward current trends and liberal use of beauty products. The tone is upbeat and encourages girls to look beyond the pages of fashion, yet the photos, like those in today's magazines for girls and women, only show models who are slim and chic. The look is funky (though some would balk at the whole idea of fashion and makeup books for tweens from the outset). There's nothing new or different here, but the overall design and cheerful tone provide a solid guide for fashion-forward devotees of Seventeen and Teen Vogue.—Elaine Baran Black, Georgia Public Library Service, Atlanta
