Book Review: How To Be God's Little Princess by Sheila Walsh

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.

This is a cute book, but I'm not really sure for whom it is written. I got it with my 4 1/2 year-old niece in mind, who is very into pink, purple, and princesses, but a lot of the tips are more appropriate for my 11 year-old niece. The thing is, my older niece is "over" the princess thing, so even though there's good tips, I don't think I could get her to read this book.

As far as the tips and suggestions, I appreciate the Scripture verses, and Walsh's constant reminders to consult with "royal advisors" (parents). The interactive quizzes are nice, but, again, they're too old for my young niece, and too pink for my older niece. If nothing else, it gives adults a lot of good ideas on how to talk with their daughters about certain things. Definitely a good way to introduce younger girls to manners and etiquette.

I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com <http://BookSneeze®.com> book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review.
