We’ve all had bad hair days—be it hair that won’t curl or is way too curly, a cut that won’t grow out fast enough, or a do that just feels like an absolute don’t even after hours of pinning and spraying. But we have good news for you. Inside [title] are killer tricks and tips on having amazing hair every day, from the best cut for your lovely locks to simple-yet-stunning updos and gorgeous styles, and even the secrets guaranteed to make your hair behave.

My thoughts:  As the mom of three teen and tween daughters, this book is excellent! It talks about face shapes and the styles that work best, how to care for our hair, and best of all has all these cool hairstyles with instructions so we can create hair styles ourselves for any occassion or season. Highly recommended!  My daughters all loved this book and so do I.

Guardian angels. Divine messengers. Fiery spirits. Winged cherubim. The realm where these beings live is invisible to us. Most of the time, so are the angels themselves. So how do we know they’re real? How can we be sure they’re there? And what do we really know about them?
Angels: a 90-Day Devotional about God’s Messengers explores over one hundred Bible passages in which angels make an appearance. In addition, there are Q and As, myths busters, hymns, Bible story retellings, pop culture references, and trivia that help you sort fact from fiction.
So spend the next ninety days really exploring the world of angels, and learn more about what is taking place all around you.

My thoughts: ANGELS is a 90 day devotional for kids about God's messengers. The devotionals are short, to the point and may or may not be based on familiar Bible stories. I like that most of the devotionals point the finger back to God, as Angels are not something we are to worship.  There are notes included for additional study, trivia, questions and answers, some hymns, "myth busters" and more. We enjoyed reading through this devotional as a family. Recommended.
