Review: The Truth (I’m a girl, I’m Smart, and I Know everything) by Dr Barbara Holstein

The Truth (I’m a girl, I’m Smart, and I Know everything) by Dr Barbara Holstein
Genre: Tween
Publisher: The Enchanted Self Press
Paperback: 112 pages
Rating: 3.5/5

This is an adorable story told thru pages of a little girls diary.
In this diary “the girl’s” most intimate thoughts, hopes, and dreams are expressed as she begins reaching puberty.

She makes an entry every other day about topics such as the love of her life at age 10, Paul, and how she dreams of marrying him someday and having a family but gets mad at her mom for saying that she will fall in love many more times before then and that Paul will be forgotten.

She expresses how afraid she is of death, of growing up, and many other emotions including being teased at school and how sad it makes her but how happy she is about other things like birthdays and sleep overs.

I recommend this book for any little girl aged 10 and up or for any mother, sister, aunt, friend, ect.. Of a little girl reaching puberty.

Reading “the girl’s” diary brought back many feelings I had long forgotten and it was refreshing to be able to sit back and reminisce and say “Hey I lived thru those years and I did turn out okay!” just like Mama said I would!

Sounds like a cute read for a mother and daughter to read together. Would this one work like that?

You could! I actually sat there and read parts of it to my hubby because he kept looking at me funny when I'd giggle. It wasn't so much that it was funny but just that I can remember having the same thoughts and feelings when I was that age. lol
