Princess Stories by Carolyn Larsen

It seems as if every girl has once dreamed about being a princess...although we didn't realize that we really were one:  God's Princess! 

I just love this book...and my daughters do too!  They couldn't wait for this book to come in the mail, and when it arrived, they immediately opened it and started reading it.  The book takes 29 women from the Bible and gives her a title.  For example, Eve is The First Princess.  Then for each princess, there is a "Mirror, Mirror on the wall," poem for that particular princess.  I think those poems are great for helping your child remember each woman's story in the Bible.  Then the book goes on to tell that woman's, ie Princess's, story.  The stories are told in a way that children can understand them. Each story is long  enough to tell the complete story, but short enough as to not lose their attention.  And the illustrations are just beautiful!  At the end of each story, there is a Bible Verse pertaining to the message being told in the story.  There are also 3 questions, called Princess Ponderings, that you can use to spark discussion with your little princess after reading the story.  

The last chapter of the book is entitled, "You, The Special Princess."  The story tells about how you don't have to dream about being a princess, or being as special as the women in the Bible.  You are a daughter of the King and that makes you a a princess too!  God has chosen you and has great things for you to do! 
This book is every little girl's dream book!

I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for this honest review.
