Book Description

4 and up
Princess Stories is the big sister to popular board book My Princess BiblePrincess Stories, appropriate for girls ages 4 to 8, is a collection of first-person narrative stories about 29 women in the Bible—and the 30th story is about the reader, who is God's princess too.

In each four-page story, the reader gets a rhyming verse about the princess (addressed to "Mirror, mirror on the wall"), a first-person story of the featured Bible woman and the special quality her life reflects, a Bible verse from another passage of Scripture that summarizes/relates to the character trait, and Princess Ponderings—questions that help girls and their parents discuss the stories and relate the lessons to life.

Through this book, girls will learn more in-depth stories of women of the Bible and how to apply Scripture to their own lives.

My take on this book:
"Princess Stories" allows young girls to learn about God's princesses in the Bible. Upon reading this book they will learn all about twenty-nine of the most prominent women  of the Bible in a way that will surely capture their imagination and attention, and not only that the thirtieth story is about the reader,encouraging and reminding them that they are God's princess as well.
Each story starts out with a scripture verse and then gives the reader a short story about a woman in the Bible. Another Bible verse follows the story and then there are Princess Ponderings which consists of three questions for your princess to answer.The cover of this book, as well as the illustrations inside will certainly capture a youngsters eye. What a wonderful way to teach a daughter or grand-daughter about the women of the Bible. Because of the quality of this book, it would make a wonderful gift.
