Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jean Boreen
This guide to glamour—with its bright pink cover—is a combination of sensible as well as more far-out suggestions to girls about how to be glamorous and what that means. More than 100 chapters are featured, ranging in page lengths from a half page to three pages. Some of the more practical chapters focus on "How to Get the Shiniest Hair Ever," "How to Take Care of Newly Pierced Ears," or "How to Clean Your Makeup Brushes," while the more unorthodox—and usually more humorous sections—explain to how to "Air Kiss," Bathe Like Cleopatra," or "Convince People You're a Hand Model." My in-house 12-year-old "glamour girl in the making" gave this book a thumbs-up, and I suspect others like her will have the same reaction. The humor is gentle and appropriate throughout and there are a variety of solid tips that may well aid tweens in particular as they shift from childhood to adolescent "glamourhood." The illustrations—pen on paper—are realistic and typically show aspects of how some of the advice might look when completed ("How to French Braid Your Hair"). This is a fun and fast read for girls looking for helpful hints. Reviewer: Jean Boreen, Ph.D.
School Library Journal

Gr 6-10

Here are 97 nifty tips (with a few tongue-in-cheek how-tos thrown in) for becoming your own fierce self. The text is similar to Juliana Foster's The Girls' Book (Scholastic, 2007) but is entirely focused on lifestyle, health, and beauty. Each entry has simple instructions accompanied by entertaining illustrations. This upbeat and amusing style guide adopts a hip tone for the tween and young-teen set. Particularly enjoyable entries include "How to Eat Spaghetti Like a Real Italian," "How to Customize Your School Uniform," "How to Convince People You're a Hand Model," and "How to Lip-synch Successfully." Jeffrie's snappy writing and Ryan's great line drawings and stylish design make Glamour an easy, breezy read that will help girls become fashion forward.-Elaine Baran Black, Georgia Public Library Service, Atlanta

    Reviewed by Lauren Ashley for TeensReadToo.com

    THE GIRLS' BOOK OF GLAMOUR by Sally Jeffrie is a short, cute read all about how to be the best, prettiest, most confident girl you can be. <BR/><BR/>The book is written in sections, with titles such as How to Customize Your School Uniform, How to Make Your Own Lip Gloss, and even How to Soothe Tired Feet. <BR/><BR/>The book is great for giving good ideas on how to clean your makeup brushes, exit a limo properly, and make tie-dyed shirts in a fun manner. All of these things are perfect for girls of different ages to know, but there are a few things that aren't something you would actually want to try and do, such as follow most of the tips on how to be a hand model. This type of information is more of a humorous read then a practical guide. <BR/><BR/>Overall, this was a really cute book, and features some things that young girls, teens, and adults might wish to accomplish with some help!
