I have a six year old daughter so she’s not quite to the recommended age of 8 – 12 but she is doing really well with her reading so I figured we’d give the Glimmer Girls a try! I know within the next year she will be just as into chapter books as her brother so I wanted to start out this collection with the first two books!
A Dolphin Wish and London Art Chase both star three sisters. Paige was really intrigued by this because she begs me for a sister all the time! This is how she can live vicariously through them!
The girls have lots of fun adventures together and learn important lessons along the way. That’s what really sets these stories apart from most chapter books for kids this age. They are moral little girls who learn from their mistakes and are happy, positive role models. That seems to be limited these days.
I started reading London Art Chase first to Paige. I have her read a page and then I read a few since it’s still pretty wordy and long for a first grader. She really is enjoying the story and asks me to read it every night. It has become our time together and I’m almost sad for the day she’s in her room reading to herself! If she has to get stuck on a series though I’m glad it’s something as positive as the Glimmer Girls!
About the Book
Join twins Mia and Maddie and their sidekick little sister, LuLu, as they travel the country finding adventure, mystery, and sometimes mischief along the way. Together with their famous mother, singer Gloria Glimmer, and their slightly wacky nanny Miss Twist, the sisters learn lessons about being good friends, telling the truth, and a whole lot more.
In A Dolphin Wish a three-night stop in the city of San Diego seems like it might be just the break the girls need—lovely weather and great sights to see. That is until they hear animal handlers at “Watery World” talking about the trouble they’ve been having keeping the animals in their habitats. Mia and her sisters cannot resist a challenge and they talk Miss Twist into another visit to the educational amusement park to search for clues as to what or who is helping the animals escape.
In London Art Chase, the first title in the new Faithgirlz Glimmer Girls series, readers meet 10-year-old twins Mia and Maddie and their adorable little sister, LuLu. All the girls are smart, sassy, and unique in their own way, each with a special little something that adds to great family adventures.
There is pure excitement in the family as the group heads to London for the first time to watch mom, famous singer Gloria Glimmer, perform. But on a day trip to the National Gallery, Maddie witnesses what she believes to be an art theft and takes her sisters and their beloved and wacky nanny Miss Julia, on a wild and crazy adventure as they follow the supposed thief to his lair. Will the Glimmer Girls save the day? And will Maddie find what makes her shine?
