Synopses & Reviews
Written for young girls 8-12, this brand-new series combines the writings of the Kelly girls with journal/activity elements in an engaging, exciting companion book to every girl's walk with God. Each book in the series includes scriptures, fun facts, journal writings, and fun personal quizzes. Girls will be able to express their deepest thoughts and feelings, as well as share everything from their favorite ice cream to the things that make them cry.
In this first book, it's all about the reader. Finding out who you are can be a fun process that will take you a lifetime-and this book gets girls started out in style! A self-guided tour through every area of a girl's inner life, this book encourages girls to find the answers to small questions (What's your favorite color? Your favorite ice cream flavor?, etc.) as well as large ones (What makes you sad? What makes you angry?)
A section on dreams and special gifts will also be included. All little girls have dreams of what they want to be when they grow up, and this book will help them discover which of the special gifts talked about in the Bible they have been given.
With activities ranging from word searches, create-your-own story fill-in-the-blanks, true/false questions, journaling space, a companion web site, fun facts, and scriptures, this first volume in the HOT CHOCOLATE WITH GOD series promises hours of fun and self-discovery!
"Hot Chocolate with God is a beautiful, interactive guide that empowers girls to be themselves, be godly, and be an example to others. Everyone will enjoy this book because it's all about YOU! It's a journey to self discovery and exploration of who you are and who you want to be."----Tiffany Schlarman from A Cozy Reader's Corner.com
"This is an absolute must read for any Tween or Teen girl in your life. I truly believe that your daughters or other girls in your life will be incredibly blessed as they read through Hot Chocolate With God, and do the various activities that are included in the book. It covers all the various topics that girls 11-20 would be interested in hearing about, from clothing to boys to self esteem and more."----Shirley from A Mom After God's Own Heart Blog
"My daughters giggled frequently while reading and wanted to share lots of the author's anecdotes with me. My 8-year-old daughter proclaimed, "I want to complete this entire book right now." She enjoyed asking me questions about things she didn't know about herself as a baby, as well as creating an acrostic poem about herself (an activity found within "Sweet Section 1" of the book). They also enjoyed watching the "Cam Clips" online."----Kristen H. from The IE Mommy Review Crew
