Dove Review

Geared toward tweens and teenage girls, this collection of five episodes deals with important topics that this group faces. Babs and Nikki have their differences but together they realize that some of the things they do are not necessarily in the Christian way. Filled with comedy and sincere thoughts that all young girls will enjoy, this is a great DVD for girl groups to watch and have discussions about the topics of each episode. We are pleased to award “nikki and babs: DOs and DOUBTs” the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages.
