Focus on the Family has always been great at reaching out to families and meeting them where they are. This time, the Adventures in Odyssey team is getting ready to release two books for girls via Candid Conversations with Connie. Both books will be a helpful guide to girls as they grow up… and they can look up to their Odyssey friends in the process.
Candid Conversations with Connie:
Welcome to Candid Conversations with Connie! And these conversations are going to be very candid. In this book we’re only taking questions from girls! Yep, they can ask whatever they want, and I will answer from my vast knowledge and experience. (Well . . . maybe not vast.) If I don’t know the answer, I’ll ask my friend Penny. We’ve been where you are, and we know what it’s like.
You’re not a little girl anymore, but you’re still years off from adulthood. You still like to play, but you also enjoy having long conversations with friends. You sometimes want to cuddle on your mom’s lap, and other times you wish she would just leave you alone. All that’s pretty normal, and you’ll see that from the questions we’re answering.
Both books are set for a Fall 2014 and Spring 2015 release, respectively. With AIO devotionals for families available and now straight-talk for girls, this begs the question: Will we see books geared for boys in the days ahead? Stay tuned…
