Princess Stories by Carolyn Larsen

I loved this book, but my 6 year old granddaughter loved it even more!  She was sold on it the minute she saw the beautiful pink cover with sparkly purple flowers (her two favorite colors). Since she sees herself as God’s little princess and a princess in training, she was surprised there were such princesses in the Bible.  That sparked her curiosity immediately!

The stories were written in such a way that kept her attention.  Each princess/ female Bible character is given a title, such as “Rebekah the Helpful Princess.”  This gave her an idea right away what the special character quality of that woman.   The story has a rhyme that begins with “Mirror, mirror on the wall. . . “and introduces how the “princess” displayed the character quality.

I was impressed with how each account clearly told the Bible story.  They were short but very easy for a child to understand.  My granddaughter quickly grasped the biblical concepts.  Each story has a Bible verse to read and memorize that brings home the main truth presented. 

At the end of each story there is a section called, “Princess Ponderings”.   It contains 3 parts: A comprehension question about what was read, a quick activity or thought to apply the truth of the story to their lives and another scripture with a question about what was learned. 

Each part was perfect in length, not too long and not too short.  The pages are beautiful with flower boarders and the illustrations are stunning and appealing to any little girl.   My granddaughter begged for me to read more, and was excited about how she could be like each princess.  Every little girl should have this book in their library!

I received this book free from Tyndale Press.  I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255
