Youth Gain Confidence and a Desire for Sports with Sally Loves {Book Reviews}

Cynthia received copies of these books ($19.95 value) in exchange for this post. Any opinions expressed here are honest and her own.


Sally Loves… is a delightful series of books that offers simple messages of growing up happy, independent and self-confident. There’s nothing better than learning to love yourself and that’s the lesson this series subtly provides to young people.  This series teaches self-esteem as they follow the adventures of a young girl named Sally. She is energetic, determined and charming. She inspires young minds to seek out all the activities, adventures and sports they desire! This type of lesson is crucial now more than ever as our nation’s youth faces challenging times. Sally Loves… will give them a reason to put the technology away and grab the gift you can learn from, time and time again. These books provide the confidence children and teens need to conquer the challenges unique to their generation.

Sally Loves… books include:

  • Sally Loves to Swim, which inspires children to be active and have confidence ($19.95)
  • Sally Loves to Dance encourages working hard to fulfill a dream ($19.95)
  • Sally Loves Coloring, Activities, and Sticker Book engages children in fun activities, word searches, mazes and pages of reusable stickers ($12.95)

Upon receiving these books, I thought…wow, they are “a bit girlie looking” for my 6-year old “farm boy” son, as I could see they were such beautifully illustrated hardcover books.  I cracked open the first book (Sally Loves… to Swim as it seemed the less “girlie” of the two) and began to read.  My son actually enjoyed that book VERY much and the second book (Sally Loves… to Dance) and the first time around we read both through twice.  My young son’s mind could see the similarities in the two books regarding having BIG dreams and achieving goals.


The Coloring, Activities & Sticker Book offers hours of enjoyment for youngsters with puzzles, mazes, stickers, drawings, coloring, etc.  Activities range from easy for the youngest of readers to more challenging for those older readers.  All three books would be a great summer package of fun!

The Sally Loves… series is geared for ages 4-9.  Sally Loves… are available at, Amazon and select book and specialty stores.
