At the word "princess" my daughter's ears perk up, her head turns, and her eyes light up. She loves princesses, and she is a princess. Our new book, How to Be a Bible Princess is definitely right up her alley. It's right up my alley too because it teaches her the true meaning of being a princess.
In a world where young girls are bombarded with images of too thin models wearing immodest clothes and too much makeup, a message that a daughter of the King of Kings is a true princess is just what I want my girls to hear. This book conveys the all-important message that an earthly princess is not the same as a true princess. A true princess honors God in all she does, and though she may not be the most glamorous or rich girl in town, God is enthralled by her beauty. He is inviting her to a place of royalty that does not pass away. (Psalm 45 is used- MY FAVORITE!)
This book is full of important truths, and I love that the young girls reading it don't have to take the author's word for it because the Scriptural reference for each story are included. Although my one and two year old daughters are too young for the depth that this book has to offer right now (although we have read parts of it together), we will surely use it in a few years for bedtime devotional time along with the Scriptures that go with each chapter. The format is aimed at keeping the attention of a young girl with beautiful pictures, multiple choice quizzes, short sections, and cute fonts. I definitely recommend this book to any family raising young girls ages 8-12. It would make a cute birthday, Christmas, or Easter gift as well.
