4.0 out of 5 stars Bought for a child going to secondary school, 24 Oct. 2009
This review is from: What Would You Do? (American Girl Library) (Paperback)
I bought this book, and several others, to help prepare my child for the transition to secondary school. It is full of common-sense advice, exactly the kind of thing you would say to your child anyway, but i hoped it would re-enforce these things. She has been at secondary school for 2 months now, and i think these books have given her a boost in the self-confidence dept. She is naturally quiet, and finds it hard to speak up for herself, but by cross-referencing articles in the book she is able to come to terms with the behaviour of other children (and staff!) at school.

4.0 out of 5 stars Helpful, 1 April 2014

This review is from: What Would You Do? (American Girl Library) (Paperback)
Bought this for my 8 year old, its full of quizzes with multiple choice answers, then gives suggestions about what 'type' of person you are based on if you are "mostly a's" or "mostly b's" etc. A few of the questions/scenarios are a bit too serious I think, but if it gets my moody daughter to think about her responses to things, and gives alternate ideas on what could be said in any given situation its got to be a good thing. I have bought a few of the 'American Girl' series of books for her now, but wish there was an english equivalent. She seems to like them and I like the fact she is reading & getting sensible advice from someone other than me!

This review is from: What Would You Do? (American Girl Library) (Paperback)
I've bought a few of these 'Smart Girl' books for my middle daughter aged 9. My eldest (11years) has read them too but agreed that whilst useful they are a bit young for her. Although these books are American don't let that put you off; they are not saccharine but gently straight talking with solid advice to help young girls think about and deal with everyday concerns. They are great for a girl to read alone, do the quizzes or to share together and open up discussion. This quiz book allows girls to think out about possible responses to tricky situations and the consequences.
