I absolutely love that I have girls who love to read. My concern comes in finding books that are both interesting and age-appropriate.
I was excited to have the opportunity to review the Glimmer Girls series - a 2-book series for 9 to 12 year olds written by award-winning singer Natalie Grant.
About Glimmer Girls:
Readers will join twins Mia and Maddie, and their little sister, Lulu, as they travel the country finding adventure, mystery, and mischief along the way. Together with their father, famous mother, singer Gloria Glimmer, and their slightly wacky nanny, Miss Julia, the smart and sassy sisters learn lessons about being good friends, telling the truth, and a whole lot more.
Grant says: "Glimmer Girls is a fiction series that I have created with my daughters. The storyline is about three girls who go on tour with their singing mom. I have no idea where I came up with that plot! It’s fun for my little girls to help with the content because they actually live that life. Glimmer is the last name of the family, but it also has a special meaning. It is a light that is never extinguished. Sometimes it may glimmer a little bit brighter, sometimes it may glimmer a little bit dimmer, but it never goes out. I felt like that was such a perfect description for all of us. We all have a light on the inside and depending on the day, sometimes it’s bright and sometimes it’s dim. That is the message I wanted girls to get from this book. You don’t always have to be shining bright, some days are going to be more difficult than others, but Jesus has put a light in you that will never go out.”
I love that these books are completely appropriate for my pre-teen girls to read. They have a foundation of Christ behind their authorship, which translates into the stories.
Little Red was very excited when she discovered that the books are written by one of her favorite Christian singers, Natalie Grant.
Little Red - I like these books because they aren't just about glimmer stuff. They do detective stuff sometimes too. These books encourage me to be a better Christian.
