"Tween girls face serious challenges these days; they struggle to maintain self-esteem and a positive body image while dealing with social awkwardness, modesty issues, and a pop culture that promotes sex and shallow glitz. My four eldest nieces range in age from 10-13 years. In my search for resources to support them, I came across the All Things Girl series.
Co-authors Teresa Tomeo, Molly Miller and Monica Cops use the late John Paul II’s Theology of the Body and Mulieris Dignitatem (On the Dignity and Vocation of Women) to help tweens develop proper virtues amidst all the chaos and confusion that today’s modern society throws their way. Concentrating on fashion, beauty and friendship the books gently walk the reader through the uniqueness of God’s plan for each of us. There are encouraging tips, fun exercises and uplifting stories celebrating the joy of womanhood. I recently contacted the authors and editor to find out how the series had come to be."
