Review
Best Party Book Ever! by Faithgirlz! is a "How-to" guide and resource for tween and teen party-planners. Filled with enticing photographs, Best Party Book Ever! is organized into six chapters: Hostess Hints, Anytime Parties, Birthday Parties, Holiday Parties, Soir'e Secrets, and Recipes. The chapters offer a selection of party themes and offer tips on invitations, decorating, crafting, activities, and food. The editors of Faithgirlz! and Girls' Life magazine have compiled a myriad of ideas that include the familiar (movie night sleepover), whimsical (secret garden tea party), charitable (bake-off), and economical (clothing swap). There are even suggestions and recipes for pet parties. Best Party Book Ever! emphasizes the positive aspects of having a party: being creative, making memories and traditions, having fun, and celebrating with friends. Young hostesses are reminded to involve (and thank!) parents for help with planning and supervision; there are also guidelines for being a good and responsible guest and for dealing with difficulties that may arise during a party. Illustrated with fun photographs and graphics and packed with possibility, Best Party Book Ever! encourages girls to "do-it-yourself." The broad range of imaginative ideas expands the reading audience to older teens, youth groups, and even adults planning parties for their children. Nina Ditmar, CLJ (Christian Library Journal)
