If you have a pre-teen daughter who loves the idea of decorating and still enjoys dollhouses, My Mini Dream Room by Karen H. Whiting is something she'll likely love. This unique book is part how to make dollhouse furniture and part devotional. The introduction begins:
"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.
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-tos 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.
Overall Rating: Very good.
