Book Review: My Princesses Learn to Be Brave and My Princesses Learn to Share

So, if you follow this blog you know I'm not the best at keeping it going. But today I have another book review especially for those of you with little princesses at home. About a year ago I reviewed another Tyndale House book titled The One Year My Princess Devotions book. My girls LOVED that book and we completed it not long ago. When these two new books with the same illustrator came up for review, I knew they would like them as well. They are sweetly illustrated with adorable princesses but the illustrations just enhance the wonderful lessons that each book brings.



In My Princesses Learn to Be Brave, two friends Grace and Hope have to face a bully on the playground. Using the story of Queen Esther from the bible, the story shows the two girls finding a way to work WITH the bully and get him on their side rather than either confronting him or allowing him to "win". By including the bully in their play they solve the problem and have a wonderful new friend as well. Each of the books starts with a sweet poem about being a princess and each includes a bible lesson to help with an everyday situation.


In My Princesses Learn to Share, Grace and Hope are playing dress up when they both decide they want one particular dress. When they tear the dress while fighting over it, Mom is able to share with them the story of Jesus and the boy with the loaves and fish while she is mending the dress and helps them to learn a lesson in sharing. 

My girls both enjoyed these books. While not very long, they are a cute way to introduce biblical solutions to children and are very popular with little girls who want to be God's princesses.
