I first wrote about The Precious Girls Club in September of 2008 when the first book in their series came out and the website was launched. Since then, the site has grown, added more features, and there’s a new book out!
The books series is for girls and revolved around the life of Katie Bennett and her diverse group of friends. The books ties into the virtual world as well were the girls can continue their play in a safe and wholesome environment with the values embraced by Precious Moments.
The Precious Girls Club site has been enhanced with some awesome new features, including:
Soon they’ll be adding a number of new “Quests” to the site including one to help find eight lost kittens roaming throughout the world and return them to the animal shelter. The animal shelter is where the Precious Moments kittens and pups are adopted from. You can also purchase a plush pup or kitten at the Precious Girls Club Store. The pups and kittens are approximately 6″ high, cost $8 each, and have a sewn on collar that says, “Precious Paws Animal Shelter”. They are incredibly soft and snugly and are approved for all ages. I love that they’re helping reinforce adoption of shelter animals. There are three versions of dogs: black, brown, or gray mini paws pups and three kittens: gray, brown or rust. Katie’s pup, Patches, is also available.
The Precious Girls Club Store also carries the books as well as jewelry, t shirts, figurines, and giftware. I especially like the bracelet charms. They’d be a great reward for a girl working on behavior issues. You can purchase the second book, Operation Kindness for $9.95 in the store as well as other retailers.
Operation Kindness continues the Club adventure with Katie and her friends as they set out to help other kids. Unfortunately, they run into BIG problems on the way. But don’t worry, the Precious Girls Club finds fun and surprising ways to complete their mission. The hardcover book has 88 page of large text and adorable full-color graphics. The book is sweet and easy to read.
