With the countdown to the Royal Wedding everyone, including me is dreaming of being a princess. Kate Middleton is living every little girl’s (and some grown-up girls) fantasy.
We’ve heard about Kate’s lessons on how to be a Princess. Perhaps Sheila Walsh’s new book, How to be God”s Little Princess, is at the forefront of the Royal training. I’ve read it and found it to be a great resource and a creative approach to teaching my girls all they need to know to be a Princess.
With its pink-themed cover, it instantly attracted my girls. Together we enjoyed learning how to wear a tiara, how to care for a pet, how to use good manners, how to help Mom, how to make cookies (pink, of course) and how to act like a princess even when things go in a direction we’d prefer it hadn’t.
This book is geared towards the 5-12 aged girl and addresses the issues of etiquette, manners and everyday life like dressing in clothes that are appropriate in fit and style.
My girls read the book on their own and loved the quizzes. We had a great time learning “Which Tiara is for You” by reading about the shape of our face. Each of my girls had a different “perfect” tiara which set their imaginations into over-drive!
We usually hold a fashion show at the change of seasons where the girls put on clothes and walk the runway while we determine if they fit. How to be God”s Little Princess has a chapter on how clothes should fit and my girls took it to heart. They were able to determine on their own what clothes, regardless of how much they loved them, didn’t fit–which drastically reduced our fashion show length!
We love this book. We’re not the only ones; the book has received so many rave reviews. Take a look at what people are saying about this fun and informative book.
