FaithGirlz Big Book of Quizzes: Fun, Quirky questions for you and your friends

9780310746041Big Book of Quizzes is put together by the Editors of Faithgirlz!  When I saw this title was available for review from BookLook, I was curious.  Could it hold its own against magazines,  books, games, and apps from the pop culture, or would this be a "preachy" publication with the guise of entertainment?  I'm delighted to say that Faithgirlz has done a good job and I look forward to passing the book onto my preteen granddaughter.  First off the graphics are young and vibrant.  The first set of quizzes and activities focus on the reader -- her personality, how she judges herself, her take on technology, etc.  The second chapter looks at school, learning style, gossiping and money habits all wrapped in some fun quizzes.  Of course, there is a chapter on best friends, boys, and other "bafflers." I especially liked the quiz on being a good friend -- give too many C answers and you'll end up with the Little Miss Meanie rating, along with some sound advice on how to change.  The last section is for faith and family.  With realistic reminders that it isn't always easy being part of a family, the authors put together quizzes on family closeness, gratefulness, and being a good sister.  All have the right mixture of light-hearted tone and seriousness.  The last two quizzes Got Spiritual Stumpers? and How do U Connect With God? ask questions and give responses that may just help preteen girls as those tough questions about God and faith begin to pop up among their peers.  Some of the questions in this book would make fun "sleep over" talk, while others are probably meant to done alone and pondered.  Altogether I think this is a fun book and Faithgirlz should keep up the effort to provide alternatives to the pop culture.

I received a copy of this book form BookLook for my honest opinion.
