Book Review– How To Be God’s Little Princess by Sheila Walsh

image

From the Publisher:

A fun guide book for God’s little princesses.

What does it take to be a princess? Sheila Walsh has some important answers to share for every little girl. This trendy design features black & white line art and a two-color pink and black interior. The art will tie to each how-to topic in the book—how to make the best pink cookies, how to wear a tiara, how to earn money at home, how to care for a royal dog, how to be respectful, how to use good manners, how to help Mom, how to follow Jesus, how to act like a princess when things go terribly wrong, and many more.

When I saw this book available for review, I thought it sounded fun, especially since I was definitely not princess-like growing up. I would have much rather been up a tree than having a tea party.

What I like:

  • The topics covered are very appropriate and provide a good amount of information without being overwhelming.
  • The book is peppered with quizzes and other activities to make it more interactive and fun for the readers.
  • Ms. Walsh uses scripture to reinforce her points. I think this would be easy to leave out and just present the practicals, so I appreciated that she included many verses.

What I didn’t like:

There’s only one thing, really. I would say the reading level is definitely appropriate for a 9-12 year old, but if my daughter does not know much of this information by the time she’s 9, then I have not done a very good job training her in the way she should go. Most of the information in the book is appropriate for a 5-7 year old, but not the reading level. I think in a year or so, Kahlen and I will enjoy going through this book together.

Overall, I give this book four stars. I was encouraged by it to start teaching Kahlen more of the manners and etiquette presented in it, and look forward to read it with her.
