Review/Giveaway: The Princess Twins and the Birthday Party

Esmé's Mommy here...

When I saw this book with princesses AND a birthday party, I knew it was written with Esmé in mind. Honestly, what could make her happier?! Read on to learn more about The Princess Twins and the Birthday Party by Mona Hodgson.

The Story

Princess twins Emma and Abby are having a birthday party. They dress up in their prettiest dresses and await the arrival of their guests. Read the story to learn what happens when one of the guests shows up in a rather plain dress. And learn that beauty on the inside is what really matters.

The Series

This book is a Level 1 (simple sentences for eager new readers) in the Zonderkidz I Can Read! series. Check out Zonderkidz for more books that not only build reading skills in your kids, but pass on life skills and Christian values, as well.

Our Opinion

Did I mention that there was a girl in the story who cried and then became happy? Combine that with the princess dresses and the birthday party, and you have all the ingredients of success for Little Miss Empathy Esmé! While she's only 2 and not a reader yet, the words and storyline are easy for her to follow (she tells me what's happening next more often than not), and the illustrations are bright and fun with lots of pink. So this has been at the top of her "request to read" book list all week. We definitely approve...

And thanks to Zonderkidz, we have TWO extra copies of this book to pass on to two readers!

I just saw this in the store and almost bought it, but was good and decided to wait. I'm glad to hear it's worth getting. The illustrations look like the Gigi books.
My little princess would love this!
