Glimmer Girls: London Art Chase

This series rocks!  You will want to get this book for your 7 to 12-year-old daughter.  The Glimmer sisters go to London, have adventures about town, and solve a crime to boot!  Your girl can read about red phone booths, English Bobbies, Trafalgar Square, double-decker busses, black cabs and other places in London as the story unfolds.

Natalie Grant's books feature twins Maddie and Mia and their little sister, Lulu.  They have their squabbles and hard moments like any other family, but I love how their parents are kind and encouraging and the girls have an overall peaceful home life.  They seem to be genuinely valued and appreciated by their parents.  It's so rare to see normal families in recent literature for children.  It's a treat. 

Mind you, the Glimmer family has tons o'cash and a hired nanny.  They're able to see all sorts of sights around the world, eat at the best restaurants and all that sort of thing.  I don't know about you, but that's stuff I'm not planning to do next week or anything like that.  Actually, I think that's part of the appeal of these books for young children. Every child wants to read something just a little fantastic sometimes.
