Ten Girls Who Used Their Talents (Lightkeepers)
is a Christian mini-biography of 10 Christian girls who were able to do notable things for the Christian religion. The book features women such as, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Patricia St. John, and Annie Lawson. The stories are very short, which is why I purchased the book in the first place. I thought my little girl would have been bored with longer stories.
However, the stories are a little too short and choppy. There is typically a scene when the girl is a child, then it jumps a few years to what she did as an adult. The way the stories are told is a little boring. But overall, the short biographies are interesting to read. If I wanted to find out more about the characters I could always buy a book about the one character.
I give this book two and a half stars. It’s a good concept and has some interesting elements, but the length and choppiness get in the way of true enjoyment. But I am still not sorry I purchased the book, as I feel it can be a useful teaching tool.
