Book Review: A Girl's Guide to Life

Book: A Girl's Guide to Life by Michelle Herman with illustrations by Glen Holland

Publication: Available now


A Girl's Guide to Life is a timeless book of warm and sensible advice for young girls, originally written by a mother for her own eight-year-old daughter. From compassion and empathy through self-expression and creativity, from thoughtfulness and helpfulness and good deeds through gratitude and heartfelt apology, from the incomparable joys of friendship to the importance of learning how and when to say no, this little book offers wise counsel that will be of use for many years to come.

Rating: 3 1/2 stars


A Girl's Guide to Life gives good practical advice to girls such as urging them to think for themselves and not to let others talk them into doing something that is wrong for them. Also giving the reader advice on how to say "No" and which situation it might pertain to.

This is written in a conversational tone making it seem as if the author is speaking directly to the reader. For older girls this information would probably be a refresher for the advice they received when they were younger but it's good information and it doesn't hurt to read it again.

I think this would make a good gift for a little girl. The information in the book is timeless.
