Glamour Girl from the Stars teaches children, especially girls, that it’s okay to be “different.” PleeDee feels great about herself, even though she doesn’t look anything like the women in the Miss Universe Pageant. This book would be an excellent starting point for talking with girls about self-esteem, society’s perceptions of beauty, and people who look “different” in our eyes. It teaches a valuable lesson while being entertaining, too!
