"Hey Girlfriend! Have you ever thought, 'I'm so little, what can I do that will matter to God?' This book will help you discover that the littlest action does matter to God!"
Every few pages includes a "Pebble of Wisdom" (a Bible verse), a short devotional and suggested prayer, a place to write down thoughts, and several how to's.
For example, the first section talks about Martha getting dinner ready for Jesus; offers a prayer thanking God for listening; asks readers to think about what they'd talk to Jesus about, who they'd like to invite to their home, and what they might discuss; then gives several how-to's for mini furniture.
Projects include a chair; an area rug; an "exploding memory box;" dollhouse curtains; a flowerpot with flowers; a dressing table; a hairbrush; a lamp; a mini book, bookcase, and bookends; a skateboard; a "stained glass" window; a bed and comforter; and a wardrobe closet, among other things. Devotional topics include hospitality; God hearing our prayers; reading the Bible; and not worrying.
Throughout, colorful drawings by Dave Carleson give lively examples of the finished dollhouse furniture and generally make the book look fun.
What I Like: I love the simple projects in this book, which encourage creativity and skill, all while gently pointing to the Bible.
What I Dislike: This really isn't a dislike, but if you are expecting a strong devotional from this book, you'll probably be disappointed. Instead, think of this as a how-to book sprinkled liberally with simple advice about God and the Bible.
