This book is all about how to be a princess! I like the book. I want to do the tiara page! [a “match the tiara to the face shape it frames best” page]
What Mom Liked:
Where was this book when I was a kid? I NEVER learned how to be a princess – other than a royal wave lesson from my siblings! I was never taught that a princess dries between her toes, or that she keeps her sunglasses sparkling clean…
I knew that this book was going to target an age above my daughter’s, but we have been having a blast with it, anyway. I gave her the “Flashin’ Fashion” quiz, and surprise – Esmé is TOTALLY “Flashy and Fabulous.” While she needs a little help with her table settings and phone manners, she had an impressive “High and Mighty” friendship style.
I love how this book channels a desire so many girls have – to be royalty – into a positive, uplifting energy. There is a great blend of outer and inner beauty concepts, with topics including appearance, hygiene, manners, hospitality, friendship, family, attitude, and a heart for God.
The book is graphically easy to read, broken up into short narratives, illustrations, quotes, quizzes, puzzles, and activities: perfect for today’s younger generation.
My first thought was that this would make a great addition to a homeschool curriculum – maybe allocating a chapter a week to go through the activities and exercises. Whether you homeschool or not, however, this is a great book for moms and daughters to walk through together. It would also be a terrific resource for a Christian tween girls’ club or class at church.
What Mom Didn’t Like:
Got nothing for you… If I were to add anything to the book, it would be a section on charity/acts of service/global view/missions or something along that line, but I think the book does a fabulous job on the topics it covers.
Thanks to LitFuse Publicity Group for coordinating the review and giveaway copies of this book.
