Book Review: How To Be God's Little Princess: Royal Tips for Manners, Etiquette, and True Beauty

As the mom of two little girls, I often wonder if I'm spending enough time teaching them the right things.  Yes, they are only 2 and 5 months, but I'm going to need to know what to teach them, because if I don't, someone else will and I may not like what that someone else teaches them.  And there is so much to teach, that I'm always concerned I'm going to miss something.

Enter this little gem by Sheila Walsh.  Written for young girls to read themselves, it is a full manual on how to act like a princess.  Not a spoiled, "serve me" princess, but a princess who lives the kind of life that God wants her to.  It is a how-to book filled with instructions on how to dress modestly and with flair, how to include others, how to treat adults, and even how to wear a tiara.  It is sprinkled generously with quizzes, puzzles and crafts that would make a little girl's imagination explode.

This book is fantastic.  I'm so glad I have it and I can't wait for my girls to read it (in about six and eight years, respectively.)  I feel like it gave me a great place to start in instructing my girls in how to be a lady, and maybe reading the words from someone other than Mom will encourage my girls in how they should live.  It has been the prayer of my heart that my girls will grow to be girls of influence and not easily influenced by the world, and I feel like this book will reinforce that.

I highly recommend this book if you have young daughters, or even if you work with young girls as a teacher or Sunday school leader. 

Oh, and the book and pages are pink.  How can any girl resist that?

Thomas Nelson Publishers provided me with a free copy of this book as a part of their blogger program called BookSneeze.
