{Review} Glimmer Girls & Giveaway

Glimmer
Follow twins Mia & Maddie and their younger sister Lulu on many exciting adventures in the Glimmer Girls series by Natalie Grant.  I had the pleasure of reviewing the first two books in the series, ‘London Art Chase’ and ‘A Dolphin Wish’.

In book #1, ‘London Art Chase’, the family and the girl’s nanny, Miss Julia, travel to London.  While exploring the city with Miss Julia, Maddie witnesses her favorite painting stolen right before her eyes.  They find out that this is not the first time a painting has vanished.  Will the girls be allowed to solve the mystery or will Maddie be disappointed in finding out what happened to the painting?

In book #2, ‘A Dolphin Wish’, we find the family has just left London and are now in San Diego.  After the girl’s adventures in London they need to keep everything low key and not cause any trouble.  When they visit Captain Swashbucker’s Adventure Park one of the twins overhears employees talking about animals getting loose.  They want to solve the question of who is behind this.  Will they figure it out before the have to board the plane for their next flight?

We enjoyed the books!  They are both approximately 200 pages long and are geared towards 9-12 year olds but younger children will also enjoy them.  The chapters are kept short which is perfect for children new to chapter books or reading a chapter as a family before bedtime.  The artwork throughout the book is great!

The author Natalie Grant says:  “Glimmer Girls is a fiction series that I have created with my daughters.  The storyline is about three girls who go on tour with their singing mom.  I have no idea where I came up with that plot!  It’s fun for my little girls to help with the content because they actually live that life.  Glimmer is the last name of the family, but it also has a special meaning.  It is a light that is never extinguished.  Sometimes it may glimmer a little bit brighter, sometimes it may glimmer a little bit dimmer, but it never goes out.  I felt like that was such a perfect description for all of us.  We all have a light on the inside and depending on the day, sometimes it’s bright and sometimes it’s dim.  That is the message I wanted girls to get from this book.  You don’t always have to be shining bright, some days are going to be more difficult than others, but Jesus has put a light in you that will never go out.”
