A book/movie review by teens (one of which happens to be mine ;)
Hi all, I just wanted to put a plug out about a new blog my oldest daughter and her friend have created to share their reviews of some books and movies.
I don't want to spoil anything, but below you will find their first post. I am only placing it here to help encourage you to check out their site. Reading it just might cause you to click over there....
They are both avid readers and the oldest in their families. People often go to them for book suggestions/ questions/ their opinion on age appropriateness of a book/ etc. Maria Gianna has been my go to reader in this house for quite awhile. I like the fact that the girls not only give a review but they also give their reasons why they deem it appropriate for certain ages. Every family is different, and every child is different...therefore, they have given you some tools to help you choose whether or not something is appropriate for your child.
As our kids get older..it's hard to keep up with any pre-reading. Especially those voracious readers! Hopefully this helps!
Welcome to our (Maria Gianna and Stacy's) blog! We both are very strongly Catholic, and believe that our Faith and morals affect everything we do. We realize that it is often difficult to find morally acceptable media in our culture today, and would like to make it easier for parents and older teens to navigate their way through this dangerous jungle.
We would like to point out that we will be reviewing many forms of media with mature themes, and would like to warn parents of younger teens that this blog should probably not be viewed without parental supervision. We will try to keep everything as tame as possible, but cannot promise that the content here will always be age-appropriate.
We hope you find our reviews to be helpful! Please feel free to leave comments if you have any questions. Also, we do take suggestions for books and movies to review, but we cannot promise to review any piece of media that we have serious moral objections to.
~Maria Gianna and Stacy
P.S. Please forgive the fact that our Chesterton widget does not have a picture of Chesterton, but rather of George Washington. It is disappointing, but unfixable. This does not detract, however, from the awesomeness of Chesterton, nor does it negate the coolness of the widget.
