The Princess in Us

At a recent writing conference I attended, I won a simply charming picture book in a raffle. The Very Fairy Princess was written by the mother/daughter combo of Julie Andrews and Emma Walton Hamilton and was illustrated by Christine Davenier.

Princess books are in high demand in our school library with the kindergarten and first grade girls. If one girl wants to check one out, they all do. Sometimes, out of curiosity, the boys get involved, too! I guess we secretly all want to be a princess or a prince. If we can’t be one, the next best thing is to read about one.

I highly recommend The Very Fairy Princess. It’s funny and heart-warming. Geraldine, the little fairy princess, is a spunky gal. She has a crown, wings, and shades of pink, purple and red are her favorite colors to wear. This fairy princess is also very practical and dispenses some first-rate advice that is perfect for young children. “You can be whatever you want to be. You just have to let your sparkle out!” If you like this book, you’re sure to enjoy the rest in this series.

Whether it’s a crown, a certain dress, fairy wings, a favorite T-shirt, blue jeans, or a smile, sometimes that one special item makes you feel good inside which makes you shine on the outside. That’s a wonderful thing!

Let your sparkle out today!

    I do love Edwards’ book Mandy. I think I may pass in princesses, though.
