This book should do well here in Danville. I can tell by “"If girls learn early to make very best of their appearance, take care of their skin and hair, and to treat people well”. Maybe Danville would not have problems with many Moms and daughters if it said “"If girls learn early to treat people well, the rest will work out" (like taking care of their appearance). Most girls want to look good; it goes without saying, especially here in Danville.
As far as grandparents, they are older and wiser! Don’t be afraid to say that the new generation of mothers care more about looking good, taking care of themselves, and being their child’s friend. It’s the truth for many Moms here in Danville!
