My thoughts:
This is an awesome book! I have a young daughter who is already being influenced by television and her peers at school. I think she's beautiful just the way she is. Yes, she may be a little on the skinny side but she's perfect to me. When she looks in the mirror she thinks her brown hair should be blonde and she needs to have a different look and different clothes. She's not even 7 yet! That's so scary to me. What have we been pushing at these young girls? And the really bad part is it's just going to get worse. This will be a great book for helping her to realize the beauty in what she has.
