Customer Reviews for Danika's Totally Terrible Toss
Review 1 for Danika's Totally Terrible Toss
Date:August 10, 2010
This series gives girls food for thought. The books seem to be good for non-Christian and Christian girls alike. They seem age appropriate (6th grade issues) and they are not preachy. There is no mention of God or prayer anywhere in this book. However, the last couple of pages give the reader a chance to think about the moral of the story and to pray with a parent.
Danikas Totally Terrible Toss is a cute, quick story for the tweener crowd, all about choosing wise friends and being one yourself. It isnt over-the-top Christian, but the theme is one Biblically soundthe kind of instruction that reaches out to the 8-12 crowd without making them feel like theyre being educated. Young girls will easily relate to Danika and her problems and will want to claim her and her new group of friends as their own by the time they turn the last page. Packed with quotes about friendship, the girls insights into what true friends are, and secret keywords you can plug into the Secret Keeper Girl website for recipes and fun tips, this is a book that will be a blast for girls to sit down with.
